Snoop Dogg’s son Cordell Broadus lands football scholarship offer from UCLA, new home of P-Diddy’s s PDF Print E-mail

When UCLA offered Cordell Broadus a scholarship, the Bruins were doing more than trying to attract a promising sophomore wide receiver and defensive back for Diamond Bar (Calif.) High. In essence, the program was staking a claim to territory in the L.A. pop culture spotlight, for one very clear reason: Cordell Broadus is Snoop Dogg's son.

As reported by the ESPNLA and the National Football Post, UCLA coach Jim Mora Jr. recently offered a scholarship to Broadus, despite the fact that the rising sophomore has spent just one year in high school, and played on the Diamond Bar freshman squad during that campaign. At 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds, the younger Broadus -- Snoop Dogg's legal name is Calvin Broadus -- has a body which could develop into that of a legitimate Division I prospect, but no one knows whether he'll continue to grow.

Of course, Broadus isn't the first son of a rapper to land with the Bruins. Justin Combs, the son of Sean "P-Diddy" Combs, signed to play at UCLA beginning in fall 2012 after an impressive prep career at Iona Prep in suburban New York City. Combs is expected to play at defensive back for the Bruins, so it's even possible (though highly unlikely) that the Bruins could use both the son of P-Diddy and Snoop Dogg in the same defensive backfield come fall 2015.

Regardless of the younger Broadus' potential, it's hard not to feel that Mora Jr. may be offering him a scholarship at least in large part for PR benefits. Snoop Dogg officially claims to be a USC fan, so snapping up a commitment from his son could give the school requisite street cred and offer a certain buzz to a program which sorely needs just such a jolt of excitement.

Diamond Bar's head football coach, for one, was quick to indicate that getting in early on Snoop Dogg's progeny might be a very wise move for the Bruins.

"We're expecting him to really lead us the next three years," Diamond Bar's Ryan Maine, who first tweeted the news of Broadus' scholarship offer, told ESPNLA. "Hopefully [our athletes] get bigger, stronger and keep leading this team."

As for Cordell Broadus himself, the teen said he feels more settled now as a sophomore in Diamond Bar than he did after a sudden transfer from Long Beach (Calif.) Polytechnic High made him a member of the Brahmas just before the 2011 season, as he told ESPNLA.

"The move was difficult when it first happened, meeting new friends and a new team," Broadus said. "It's been good ever since. The competition level at Long Beach Poly is a whole lot different than it is down here, but I've learned that it's all on me and how hard I work."

Tupac Father of a Generation…. PDF Print E-mail
Written by fame   
Wednesday, 13 June 2012 12:50


As we celebrate the 41st birthday of one of Hip Hops biggest Icons, I am humbled at the thought of all the lives he touched during his time here. I began to reflect on how he personally effected my life as a teenager and how I might not have become the man I am today without his teachings. I feel it is important to not only remember the talent of the man but to also reflect on his character and many positive attributes. This week marks the ninth time in my life that I will be honored or recognized for being a father, which always challenges me to think of traits of a good father. Having not grown up in a home with a father figure, Tupac words through song were often the only kind of acknowledgement of the struggles I saw and experienced.

Songs like (Keep Ya Head Up) spoke directly to me, because at times I felt no one cared so why should I. When I heard (Only God Can Judge Me) it helped me see clearly that I am somebody and no one had the power to take that away from me. Tupac knew and understood that there were millions of kids just like me looking for parental guidance and took it upon himself to feel that void. The sacrifices he made with regard to his own safety to deliver the message were definitely traits I would associate with a good father. Speaking from experience there is no risk that is too great or danger I wouldn’t face to protect my children and help them navigate through this toxic world. Tupac was truly a visionary and just as a father figure his hopes of a brighter future were always visible.

As a young boy I was told to always judge a person by their actions, so what I admire the most about Tupac is that his words matched his actions. When I heard (Me against the World) I thought this was more than an Album or a song, it was truly a reflection of the life he was living. In fact it wasn’t until I heard him say those words that I realized why I felt so lonely and abandoned. Like a father Tupac gave me comfort in knowing that someone was out fighting on my behalf. What made his star ever more mesmerizing is the fact he didn’t fit into the status quo. He was a smart black man; articulate and understood the significance of being the rose that grew from concrete against all odds. So as I prepare to enjoy another humbling father’s day, it would be selfish of me not to acknowledge the impact Tupac had on my life how I think and believe. I am forever grateful and humbled and only wish his legacy continues to live on until the end of time.

Happy Birthday Tupac!!!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         comments: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
