Julian Broadus: Biography and Net Worth

Julian Broadus
Written by Omolola Akinyemi

Does the name ‘Julian Broadus’ sound familiar to you? Well, perhaps not. Unless you are privileged to know about the famous ambassador of the family name ‘Broadus’. It just so happens that Julian Corrie Broadus is a son of world-acclaimed rapper, Calvin Coldozar Broadus Jr., better known as Snoop Dogg. That fact is enough to accord the youngster a celebrity status. Let’s find out what he has been up to.

Julian Broadus

The Birth of Julian Broadus

Julian Corrie Broadus (nicknamed Juicy J) was born in 1998 to Snoop Dogg and Laurie Helmond. Well – it is not a fairytale romance story, since he was born out of wedlock. The circumstances of his birth turned out a bit sad for both mother and son. Apparently, Snoop Dogg met Laurie Helmond from way back in high school in Long Beach, California. From being friends, they became lovers. The duo maintained some sort of long-distance relationship even after graduation.

However, Snoop Dogg turned out not to be so perfect after all. Perhaps the circumstances of his career made him so. But he has an alarming weakness when it comes to women (and sex). More details on this would come later.

Right around the same period he was seeing Laurie in high school, Snoop Dogg was into another relationship with Shante Taylor Fuller. Shante was another high school colleague of the rapper. As they grew closer, she showed a lot of interest in Snoop Dogg’s rap songs. She and some other friends would listen to his music and give their opinions. The rapper started out in the music industry by collaborating with the likes of Dr. Dre and Tupac Shakur. And along the line, Shante became Snoop Dogg’s music manager and promoter;  there could be no turning back since then.

The rapper had already fathered two children with Shante before they wedded in 1997. And when the news of Snoop Dogg’s wedding got to Laurie Helmond, she called the rapper to confirm it. It devastated her. Sometime after that, Snoop Dogg and Laurie Helmond met and got intimate, and Laurie got pregnant. She informed Snoop Dogg, who found it hard to handle the news because of his wife and kids.

Thus Julian Broadus was born in June 1998. Laurie Helmond reportedly dragged Snoop Dogg to court after carrying out a paternity test, which came out positive. Indeed Julian was Snoop Dogg’s biological son; it became clear. Consequently, Snoop Dogg agreed to pay child support as is expected, but remained distant from the lad and his mother. Laurie Helmond ended up bringing up her son all alone.

Julian Broadus: Growing Up

Julian had turned nine years old before he eventually knew about his father and step-siblings. Since Snoop Dogg was an absentee father, it did not make much difference to him. That is, apart from the fact that he was forcibly brought into the spotlight. The absence of a father figure in his life made Julian quite sad. And he voiced it openly on social media; but learnt to deal with it. About 24 years later and at a height of about 5 feet 9 inches tall, he is unmistakably the son of Snoop Dogg (judging by his appearance).

Julian Broadus: His Career

Julian was passionate about two career paths from youth: the first being basketball and the other, music. He was a basketball player in high school, up until a hand injury stopped him from going any further. Thus in 2001, Julian decided to join the rap group, Three 6 Mafia (along with Crunchy Black and DJ Paul) where he gained huge recognition. The Three 6 Mafia group was the pioneer of Southern hip-hop style of rap (hip-hop with elements of trap and crank).

Julian further succeeded in putting past hurts aside, to collaborate with his father and other West Coast rappers in the early 2000s. Julian also released a good number of successful solo albums and mixtapes. They included ‘Stay Trippy‘ (2013) and ‘Rubber Band Business‘ (2017). Yet again, he collaborated with other famous music artistes – the likes of Kanye West, Whiz Khalifa, and Justin Bieber.

Today, Julian Broadus has fully embraced his passion for music. He thrives as a rapper, music producer, songwriter, and popular internet personality.  Julian has also ventured into business and philanthropic activities. He owns a  clothing line, a cannabis company, and a foundation that supports youth empowerment. He is also known to be an outgoing personality, with energetic stage performances.

Julian Broadus: His Private Life

The revelation of Julian’s paternity obviously attracted a large followership to his social media accounts. But his music career and social media activity further elevated his popularity. At the moment, he is known to be single.

Julian Broadus: Net Worth

Clearly Julian Broadus is already an heir to his father, Snoop Dogg’s fortune. But apart from this, Julian so far managed to build an estimated fortune of at least 1 million US Dollars (as of 2024).

Julian Broadus’ Father, Snoop Dogg: Controversies

As of the moment, Snoop Dogg is physically separated from his wife Shante Broadus after two unsuccessful divorce moves. They agreed to meet and perform necessary duties together, but no longer live together under the same roof. The discovery of Julian’s birth brought irrecoverable changes to their family. And to make things worse, Snoop Dogg reportedly has an addiction to sex.

By the time he began to live apart from his wife and their kids, Snoop Dogg had become entangled in serial cheating accusations. He could not stop himself from visiting sex clubs either.

Snoop Dogg shares three children with his wife Shante: sons Cordell and Corde, and daughter Cori. His children are also actively into the music industry with their mother as their manager.
