The Internet aggregator Reddit has raised $50 million in its Series B, a round led by Y Combinator president Sam Altman that also included participation from Marc Andreessen, Alfred Lin, Peter Thiel, Ron Conway, Jared Leto, Snoop Dogg, and others. Reddit was incubated at Y Combinator in 2005 (the same year its current president Altman went through the program), purchased by Conde Naste in 2006, and currently has 133 million monthly active users. The Reddit deal is simply the latest VC investment by Academy Award winning actor Jared Leto and rap icon Snoop Dogg. Jared Leto’s portfolio also includes Zenefits, Robinhood, Radius Intelligence, and Superpedestrian, while Snoop Dogg became an investor in Robinhood last month. Reddit will reportedly distribute 10% of the newly raised equity to its users.

The latest financing likely pushes back the company’s plans to go public, though CEO Christy Wyatt, in speaking to Re/code, insisted that the company still plans to do so when the time is right. “Nothing has changed in our plans,” she said, “There’s a whole bunch of [factors], a lot of them external…We continue to watch the market.”
