Snoop Dogg’s latest feat has landed him in increasingly rare company, speaking to the longevity of his cultural relevance.

Last week, Snoop appeared alongside BTS on Benny Blanco’s new single, “Bad Decisions.” As you’d expect with three of music’s biggest names on board, the song debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, making Snoop one of only three people to land top 10 hits in the ’90s, ’00s, ’10s and ’20s.

The other two artists? Jay-Z and Mariah Carey.

"@SnoopDogg joins @MariahCarey and Jay-Z as the only artists to earn top 10 hits on the #Hot100 in each of the past four decades: ‘90s, ‘00s, ‘10s and ‘20s,” Billboard tweeted this week.

Snoop has had a dozen top 10 hits in his career, three of which went to No. 1. The first came in 1993 with his smash debut single “What’s My Name,” while his first No. 1 came in 2004 with the Pharrell-assisted “Drop It Like It’s Hot.”

He landed his most recent No. 1 in 2010 with his guest appearance on Katy Perry’s “California Gurls.”

 

Snoop hasn’t yet spoken about the achievement, but he still has his hands full with his latest business venture: Snoop Loopz. The new, gluten-free cereal is on its way to grocery stores, through the rapper’s Broadus Foods company.

The news was broken by Master P — another legendary hip-hop entrepreneur in his own right — who called it the “best tasting cereal in the game” in an Instagram post promoting the item.

“Broadus Foods introduces the best tasting cereal in the game Snoop loopz,” Master P wrote. "@snoopdogg we’re taking over the grocery stores. Snooploopz.com The more we make the more we give. #GODisgood #familybusiness Berry delicious Fo Shizzle!”
