“Las Vegas, Nevada. April 20, 2009–Following a detailed sitting with sculptors and artisans in October and hundreds of measurements, Rapper Snoop Dogg, aka Cordozar Calvin Broadus. and the man known for his recent TV series, “Snoop Dogg Father Hood” (E! Entertainment), is joining the Madame Tussauds Las Vegas family as part of its “On Stage” area. An official unveiling, with Snoop Dogg in attendance, accompanied by the Pomona Steelers team from his Los Angeles-based Snoop Dogg Youth Football League, takes place on Mon., April 20, in Las Vegas.

Snoop Dogg is one of only three Rap super stars to be featured in the Madame Tussauds collection. For the April 20 unveiling, the entertainer has donated his own clothes—including a baseball jacket from the rapper-turned-entrepreneur’s new clothing line–to outfit the life-size likeness handcrafted in the attraction’s London studios at a cost of $300,000.

First made famous with his debut on Dr. Dre’s “The Chronic” album, Snoop Dogg, nicknamed such by his mother after the famous cartoon character, “Snoopy,” has been a leading player on the Rap music scene since 1992.”
