(Calvin Broadus)
musician
Born: 10/20/1971

Leading rap artist whose debut album Doggystyle (1993) vaulted to the top of the charts while the artist fought charges of being an accomplice to murder (he was eventually cleared of all charges). His other recordings include Tha Dogg Father (1996) and Top Dogg (1999). Like other rap artists, Dogg enjoys a large crossover audience with white teenagers, and has begun appearing in movies, such as Half Baked (1998) and Training Day (2001).
