From the football field to the runway, Snoop Dogg’s son, Cordell Broadus hit the runway during fashion week.
At 6-foot-3 foot Cordell took to the catwalk for Phillipp Plein along side of his grandfather Vernell Varnado, a.k.a Poppa Snoop, the father to Snoop Dogg.
“I’m just using fashion as a vehicle to open up more doors and opportunities for my entrepreneurialism further down the line,” Cordell told The Post backstage of the fashion show.
“I want to executive-produce and star in my own movies. I’m going to use modeling as branding platform so people can see my face and see my brain,” Cordell continued saying.
He continued by saying, “I want to make movies like Marvel, and I want to tell stories. I want to do a story on my grandfather and his life because he’s a Vietnam vet. He’s got tremendous stories and life experiences.”
His grand dad Poppa Snoop has made his way to film already in the new bio pic of Tupac Shakur, “All Eyez on Me.” Poppa Snoop was casted and is in five scenes of the movie.
Poppa Snoop was also caught backstage of the fashion show where he spoke about going to the casting call with Cordell and was casted instead.
“I came up here just to be his guardian angel and all of a sudden I get 2,000 followers in two days,” said Poppa Snoop.
During the fashion show, Cordell strolled the catwalk bare chested while wearing a leather jacket, Phillipp Plein underwear and damaged jeans and a “Thug Life” tatt inked on his abdomen.
 “It’s hard,” Cordell said. “I look like a rockstar! I love it!”
Cordell also touched on his football and the difficulties in quitting the game. He said, “The hard part was telling my family. At the end of the day, you want to make your family happy, but more importantly I came to find out you should put yourself first and your happiness is the number one priority.”
He finished by saying, “Ever since I made my decision, I’ve been tremendously happy and my family has supported me the whole way. It was pretty hard for my dad, but he adjusted to it and he accepted me for who I am.”
