Snoop, born Calvin Broadus Jr., and Bing were half-brothers on their mother’s side, according to the New York Post.

The hip-hop legend hired his younger brother as a roadie and later as tour manager.

In a 2016 interview with Vice, Worthington said he and Snoop had worked together for years.

“I’ve done lots of things with Snoop, like Dogg [Cadillac] DeVilles, Dogg Skateboards, you name it. I come up with a lot of great concepts. As well, I’ve done a lot of work with Snoop on the road and basically putting the albums together, so I’ve been doing this for years,” Worthington told the outlet.

He added, “I started from the bottom, I ain’t just become the tour manager, I was just the road guy. I worked my way to the top.”
