Cordell Broadus, the son of rap artist Snoop Dogg, made headlines when he stepped away from the UCLA football team earlier this month.
Broadus, a 4-star receiver from Nevada, was entering his freshman season at UCLA. According to reports, he cited his father’s pressure to play football as one of his reasons for leaving the game despite never playing a single down.
On Wednesday, his father spoke with Campus Sports’s Dave Osokow at a charity flag football game in Los Angeles. The rapper discussed what advice he gave his son following his departure.
“To be all that he can be in life,” he told Osokow. “Play the game of life like you played the game of football. Play it hard, with a passion. Be serious about it. Be studious. Be humble, and strive to be great.”
According to reports, Broadus quit football to pursue his movie career.
