Snoop is one proud dad. Not only has he had the opportunity to watch his son flourish in athletics and academics, but he has also received the chance to be a part of family history. You see, Cordell Broadus is the first in the immediate family to attend college, and Snoop couldn’t be more proud.


“My son first one in the family to go to college proud moment for the broadus family,” tweeted the rapper shortly after his son announced his college decision. Cordell had been sought out by several universities because of his amazing football talent, but opted to attend UCLA this Fall and play for the ‘Bruins.’

“I’m throwing all my USC drawers away,” said Snoop, who is a huge ‘Trojans’ fan, to ESPN. “I’m UCLA 100,000 percent.”

The rapper went on to gush about his son telling media, “It’s been awesome just watching [Cordell] step into manhood and make a decision that he feels comfortable with. We can support him as his parents and as his family members. We totally stand by his decision to go to UCLA.”

Cordell is Snoop and wife Shante Broadus’ youngest son. The couple have three kids in all.
