    Hardcover Description:
    This is a tale of a young man’s struggle against a system that consigned him to a destiny of poverty, crime, and hopelessness from birth. 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.
