Snoop Dogg, USC football’s own rap legend

Snoop Dogg gained his fame through the music world, but his love of sports drew him to USC.

A fan of the Dodger and Lakers, Snoops’ Los Angeles upbringing set him up perfectly to become one of the Trojans’ biggest and most visible celebrity fans.

Already well-known for producing hit albums and songs like “Gin & Juice” and “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” Snoop made a point of attending games at the Coliseum during the height of the Pete Carroll era. LenDale White even tossed him the ball after scoring a touchdown in 2005.

He continued to appear decked out in USC gear even as USC had to put limits on celebrity access to the football team.

The only hiccup in Snoops’ tenure as a Trojan fan involved his son. Though Cordell Broadus had a scholarship offer to USC, the wide receiver picked UCLA and briefly enrolled as a Bruin. His subsequent departure from UCLA allowed his father to wrap himself in cardinal and gold once more.

Snoops’ connection to USC continues to this day. He was featured in a USC football Zoom hangout.

And even though he didn’t produce a Trojan among his children, his youth football league in Los Angeles recently had alumni Maximus Gibbs commit to play at USC.
