Rappers' sons and sports: An Extra Mustard investigation
On Friday, UCLA announced Cordell Broadus, son of West Coast rapping legend Snoop Dogg, would be leaving the football program.
The news coincides perfectly with a years-long Extra Mustard project proudly being revealed today: What's up with the sports-playing son of this rapper?
Broadus, a four-star receiver prospect, never attended the Bruins' fall camp. He'll still go to school at UCLA, where he will pursue film, and we won't have to feel old watching Snoop's son play college football. Looks like Snoop's $3,000 are going to waste.
Sean "P. Diddy" "Diddy" "Puff Daddy" Combs
Diddy's son, Justin Combs, a junior defensive back, remains on the UCLA roster. However, Diddy is in some trouble himself, as he still needs to resolve a June arrest for attacking one of his son's coaches with a kettlebell.
P's son, Percy Miller, Jr., a.k.a Lil' Romeo or Romeo, was recruited to USC under bizarre circumstances, with most believing then-coach Tim Floyd offered Miller a scholarship to secure the commitment of future Raptors star DeMar DeRozan. Miller played 19 minutes in two seasons for the Trojans. After forgoing his junior season, he took up modeling, returned to his music career and appeared on Dancing with the Stars.
First things first, RIP Nate Dogg. Go listen to "21 Questions" and then come back. Nate's son, Naijiel Hale, was kicked off the Washington football team earlier this month for unspecified disciplinary reasons. Hopefully, he lands on his feet.
