Snoop Dogg has shown his softer side when he took in a troubled teen in order to help teach him life lessons.
The hip-hop star is trying to help troubled teens use their energy in sport by coaching them in his youth football programs. But Snoop’s dedication goes beyond the football field – and he’s currently raising one kid at his family home. He tells Vibe magazine,
“A lot of kids that I work with, I take under my wing. There’s one living with us now that was an at-risk kid. He’s becoming more productive. As opposed to being a great athlete, we’re making him a great person.”
Snoop who can relate to having a troubled past, is proud to lend a hand in helping them succeed in life.
“My greatest accomplishment is being able to stay me. It got me great endorsement deals, movie deals, record deals. Around the whole world, I’m looked at as a good guy. Not as a villain or a drug dealer or the gangbanger I came in as.”
