From Fruity Alcohol Soda to GPS Assisted Phones

Before you look through this collection of Snoop Dogg innovations, I want you to think about something: In August of 1993, Snoop was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in connection with an attack allegedly carried out by his bodyguard against a rival gang member. He was later acquitted, but the case is a mind-boggling footnote when you examine the leaps Snoop's career has made as a pop culture icon, some 18 years later.

Snoop Dogg has become 'Uncle Snoop,' a man who runs the Snoop Youth Football League, a national Pop Warner league primarily composed of children from inner-city middle schools, as well as a sometimes actor (Training Day, his short-lived sketch comedy show 'Doggyfizzle Televizzle'), and perhaps his most frequent role, marketing frontman.

In this collection of Snoop Dogg innovations, we examine the heights the Long Beach, California native's career has reached. From fruity alcohol pitches for Blast by Colt 45 to soda pop work for Pepsi to sports endorsements for Adidas, these Snoop Dogg innovations prove that you can rise above the most dire straits to become a positive influence on your community if you make a strong commitment to improving your situation.
