Cordell Broadus May Pull A Justin Combs

Snoop Dogg's son has been offered a scholarship to UCLA! The rapper ought to be bursting with pride, but as we've seen before, there's likely controversy to follow such an accomplishment.

Snoop Dogg & sonLife is good for the sons of world-famous rappers. Snoop Dogg's son, Cordell Broadus, has been offered a scholarship to UCLA -- much like Sean "Diddy" Combs' son Justin was earlier this year!

Breaking the news Snoop Dogg's son may be headed to play football out west, high school coach Ryan Maine tweeted Monday, "BRAHMA RECRUITING NEWS: WR Cordell Broadus (2015) received his first offer from UCLA."

Cordell Broadus, pictured here with his famous father, just completed his freshman year of high school and won't graduate until 2015. "We're expecting him to really lead us the next three years," coach Maine told ESPNLA of the 185 pound wide receiver and defensive back. "Hopefully [our athletes] get bigger, stronger and keep leading this team."

Unfortunately, the offering of a scholarship to Snoop Dogg's son may not be a wholly joyous occasion. Recently Diddy and his family were the target of public backlash over Justin Combs receiving a full ride to UCLA. Many argued that the funds ought to be given to other students -- like those not lucky enough to have millionaire rap-mogul parents -- than to Combs.

Referencing Justin Combs' experience, one Twitter user wrote Monday, "hope ppl don't act like they did with Justin," while another challenged, "Anyone got something to say?"

It was another person, however, that echoed our reaction to Snoop Dogg's son receiving the offer: "Kinda disappointed his last name isn't Dogg."

Congratulations to Cordell Broadus on the UCLA offer. Your father -- real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. -- ought to be downright proud of his pup!

Do you think Snoop Dogg's son should take a scholarship like Diddy's did?

I think it is a little early for him to already be offered a scholarship, so we shouldn't get so worked up about it right now! But he clearly has talent and has worked hard to get to that position and it shouldn't matter what kind of money he comes from. Just because his dad is famous that is why we are even aware of it, I'm sure there are talented children of millionaires who still get scholarships but we don't know about it.

CONGRATS TO HIM AND FAMILY. PEOPLE ALWAYS GOT SOMETHING TO SAY. THE KIDS OBVIOUSLY IS DOING SOMETHING RIGHT TO DESERVE SUCH AN HONOR.THESE KIDS MAY NOT WANT TO LIVE OFF THEIR PARENTS MONEY.THEIR NOT THE KARS WHO ARE JUST AS RICH AS THEY ARE. THEY GOT THE GRADES TO DESERVE A FULL RIDE OR WHATEVER THEY GOT THE SCHOLARSHIP FOR PEOPLE SHOOULD BE PROUD.MAYBE THEIR KIDS (THE EOPLE THATS COMPLAINING)SHOULD ALSO BE OFFERED BUT ONLY IF THEIR GRADES ARE GOOD. STOP HATING.

Both young men should accept what they have earned. They do not need to depend on "Daddy" for their needs. Congrats to them both!!!

Absolutely! He earned it. He has a right to pursue and fullfill his own dreams and he has a right to be awarded for HIS own efforts.
