Like her father, Cori, too, has a successful career in the field of music. She learned singing at church choirs and then decided to venture into the world of music. Cori tasted success with her debut release. She has collaborated with her father a few times and has also worked with popular singers such as Drake and Kamaiyah.

Birth, Early Life, & Education
Cori Broadus was born on June 22, 1999, in California. She has two older brothers, Corde and Cordell. She also has a half-brother, Julian, from her father’s extramarital relationship with his former high-school lover, Laurie Holmond.
When Cori was about 6 years old, her parents noticed a light spot on her face. She then lost her hair and became thin rapidly. Cori was soon diagnosed with Lupus, a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body. She was put on medication immediately and is now completely cured. Cori loves playing volleyball in her free time, as she has spent a lot of time playing the sport while growing up.
Cori’s disease was a boon in disguise for her parents’ relationship. Her father, Snoop Dog, who is often framed by the media as an unfaithful husband, revived his marriage to Shante due to Cori’s illness. Cori’s parents decided to stay together and resolve their differences for the sake of her health.
In 2017, Cori graduated high school from 'Ramón C. Cortines School of Visual and Performing Arts.' Following in her father’s footsteps, Cori developed an interest in music since she was a toddler. She received her initial music lessons at church choirs and in school. Eventually, Cori received professional guidance from her father and decided to make a career in the field of music.
