snoop dogg, doggystyle,*Snoop Dogg‘s iconic album, “Doggystyle,” artwork from 1993 has been put on auction by Heritage Auctions and is expected to bring in $10,000 on December 6.

“This is a true treasure of Hip-Hop and American Pop Culture,” said Dean Harmeyer, Consignment Director at Heritage Auctions.

He added, “Snoop’s debut ‘Doggystyle immediately established him as an A-List artist and one of the most important figures in popular music over the last two decades.”

“Doggystyle” made history — becoming the highest-selling debut album of first week sales. The album sold 800,000 units in its first week. To this date, the album sold more than five million units.

The artwork shows a comic-version of Snoop as a canine. Joe Cool created the iconic artwork, based on the producer Dr. Dre‘s concept.

“Taking a cue from the ‘Peanuts’ comic strip, the canine Snoop Dogg is atop a doghouse, similar to where Snoopy often appeared in ‘Peanuts’ and was meant as a humorous subversion of the iconic Charles Schulz character,” Harmeyer said.
