Snoop Dogg was ‘kind of mad’ about son quitting UCLA football team
Cordell Broadus quit the UCLA football team for the second in his playing career — a decision that disappointed his father, Snoop Dogg.
Snoop was a guest on Hot 97 with “Ebro in the Morning” and talked about son Cordell walking away from UCLA football for a second time.
“It was heartbreaking, it was crushing,” said Snoop. “But at the same time I saw it was a burden on his shoulders. I never wanted him to feel like he had to do anything for me. I showed him how to play football for him. I just love the fact that he was great at it and he could get to that level.”
Snoop then explained that Cordell’s desire and heart did not lie with football.
“His spirit wasn’t into it. He wanted to do other things. I understand that because I started off as an athlete and music and everything else overwhelmed that. I followed my heart and I followed my dreams.
“I kind of was mad, but how can I be mad at you for discovering who you are and becoming you? What I wanted you to be may not have been you, but what you want to be is going to be all you.”
Cordell quit the UCLA football team about a year ago just before the Bruins began fall practice. Then after the season, he realized how much he missed the game and wanted another shot at the team. UCLA gave him that chance, but then he decided again that football wasn’t for him.
Aside from football, Cordell, a wide receiver, was interested in film and was designing an underwear line.
