The MTV Vault YouTube channel has released rare footage of Snoop Dogg‘s MTV Cribs episode from 1996, when the crew stopped by the compound to get a tour of the place, play some basketball on the court behind the house, exchange pleasantries with the family, as well we get some time with The Doggfather himself.
The footage starts off with Snoop shooting some hoops with his son Corde Broadus on the basketball court in the back of the house.
During the house tour given to John Norris, appearances can be seen from Daz, Warren G, and the late, great Nate Dogg – -who comes in right on cue with a brim on and shooting a left-handed jumper.
Throughout the episode, several references are made to Snoop Dogg’s Doggfather album which came out November 12, 1996 and debuted at number one during it’s first week, selling 479,000 copies.
As the follow-up to 1993’s Doggystyle, Snoop Dogg’s second album was produced and mixed by DJ pooh, along with Daz, Soopafly, Sam Sneed, LT Hutton and others. The album featured appearances by Too Short, Kurupt, LBC Crew, Charlie Wilson, and Tray Deee to name a few.
