Snoop Dogg and His Father: Uncanny Resemblance Revealed in Throwback Photo”

The Snoop apple doesn’t fall far from the Snoop tree.

Rapper and entertainer Snoop Dogg just posted a throwback picture of himself with father, Vernell Varnado, and you can totally see the resemblance.

In the photo, which was taken at Snoop’s 2018 Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, Snoop stands with his arm around his dad, wearing a Gucci sweater and camel coat, while his father looks snappy in a light gray suit. “Me and pops 🔥🔥💙💙,” he wrote on Instagram.

“Pops looks just like you,” wrote one commenter. “Like father like son 🔥” added another.

Varnado is a Vietnam War veteran who spent ten years as a mail carrier in Detroit. While the rapper, and former The Voice Mega Mentor, was raised primarily by his mother in Long Beach, California, he reconnected with his father as a young adult.

In an article for OC Weekly in 1999, Varnado admitted, “I didn’t even much see Snoop until he was 12 years old.”

He fondly remembered when his son’s hit “Nuthin’ But A G Thang” came out, and how proud he was of his son’s success. “Man, that was like the national anthem,” he recalled.

“I was out there delivering mail in Detroit, and everyone on my route was playing it, givin’ me love because everybody knew I was Snoop’s dad. It made me popular in Detroit.

I mean, I’m a mailman, and my son is doin’ this and doin’ that?” Later, Varnado moved to Southern California to work on projects in the music business.


He was always a fan of his son’s work, telling Spin in 1993, just after Snoop had became famous on the hip-hop scene, “Snoop was always extraordinary. I thought he was a genius. Even when he was like six or seven, if music came on, he’d jump up and dance and perform all the hand movements.”
