“I want to thank me for believing in me, I want to thank me for doing this hard work, I want to thank me for having no days off. I want to thank me for never quitting."

These were the words of hip-hop veteran Snoop Dogg as he received his overdue star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. With a career spanning nearly three decades and multiple hits over the years, including the timeless ‘Drop it Like It’s Hot’, Snoop has definitely earned his praises.

Interestingly, despite selling over 23 million albums in the United States and 35 million albums worldwide and a supposed net worth of $135 million, Snoop has never won a Grammy award albeit 17 nominations, proving that such accolades are not the best indicators of talent and musical greatness.

Also commonly referred to as Uncle Snoop, he has collaborated with just about everyone in hip-hop, from fellow legends such as,Tupac and Dr. Dre to newer artists such as, Wiz Khalifa and Kendrick Lamar.

In recent years he has become a much-loved online presence, with his social media, particularly his Instagram, being a source of entertainment for many fans.

With his seemingly easy-going personality and sense of humour, together with his undeniable musical abilities, Snoop Dogg has become one of the most loved hip-hop icons in the world, a fact well known to Snoop as he proclaims, “Snoop Dogg, you a bad motherf*****."
