Set against the mean streets of L.A.'s South Bay 'hoods, the book is populated by a cast of vivid characters, including Tupac Shakur, Snoop's one true friend and musical soulmate, cut down at the beginning of a brilliant career, and Suge Knight, whose Death Row Records brought street-level credibility--and gangland tactics--into the corporate suites of the entertainment industry.From the Crip gang members who recruited Snoop virtually off the playground to the pimps and players, whores and hustlers who formed his extended family on the streets and behind prison walls, Tha Doggfather offers a scathing, unexpurgated look at life on the edge in a modern urban jungle. Snoop's rise to the pinnacle of rap stardom is chronicled, along with his nearly career-ending arrest and trial for a murder he didn't commit.Raised to the pinnacle, brought to the brink, Snoop Dogg eventually found sanity and salvation in his relationship with Shantay Taylor, his high school sweetheart. Married in 1997, the couple started a new life with their two young sons, even as Snoop's career reached new heights in his creative collaboration with Master P and No Limit Records....

Tha Doggfather: The Times, Trials, And Hardcore Truths Of Snoop Dogg Reviews
As bold and outspoken as Ta-Nehisi Coates -- all the truth-telling with twice the passion, three times the humor and none of the smug, self-serving political correctness!
With honesty and candor, well what can you respect from Snoop... he tells his life story and how he came to be!
This was an easy style of book to read and from what he has written it reflects his style of living and writing. Taken at face value and in his words he isn't going to lie, Snoop Dogg has had an interesting life and though he has gone through some tough times he has come through them and continues to do what he does best. Recommended read if you like autobiographies.
Tha' wisdom... Aside from The Doggfather's unhurried observations and often humorous insight, favorite spots where I drew inspiration was in the likes of Coach Johnson’s message on ‘having a mission’ (I call it passion). Auntie Mary was another favorite, as was Shanté. Adding much muse to this memoir were his raw, rustic perspectives and outlook on life, his growth and his innate relationship with God, on top of his love for his wife and children...wanting his children ‘to feel safe, free and fine about themselves.’ I’m saying, “raise your kids up right, best legacy to bestow the world...” stole my heart. I’ve read very few memoirs as redemptive and redeeming as Tha Doggfather. Highly recommended!
I just love hip-hop culture, gangster rap, ebonics, all that hyphe goodness, and books on those topics are few and far between, especially written by actual rappers. The writing was bland but the content wan on the the money, drugs, thugs, and wrapping people up in rugs prior to dumping them out on the freeway. Also, Snoop is about my age, so that added to my interest level during the read. A must-read for hip-hop fans.
I'm not a huge Snoop Dogg fan but I love musician biographies and he is definetly a talented rapper. This book was really funny especially about his beginings in the music industry and his take on life in general.
A funny and insightful look into the rough and tumble life of a rap impresario.
Good life story
not on overdrive
tyhis book is bad ass
