Every dog has his day. And Snoop Dogg just got his, since the rap veteran was honored with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Snoop was present for the presentation at the El Capitán Theater, which was recorded for Jimmy Kimmel Live! and webcast on YouTube.
During his acceptance speech, the 47-year-old hip-hop star kept a special compliment for the source of his inspiration and energy during a decades-long career … himself. "I want to thank me for believing in me, I want to thank me for doing all this hard work," he said. "I want to thank me for not having days off, I want to thank me for never giving up, I want to thank me for always being a donor and try to give more than what I receive. I want to thank me for trying to do more good than bad." I want to thank me for being only me at all times. "
Kimmel joined the legendary producers Quincy Jones, Dr. Dre and Leron Gubler, president and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber, at the star's presentation, while 2 Chainz, BattleCat, Big Boy, George Lopez, Jeannie Buss, Jeezy, Pharrell Williams, TI, Ty Dolla $ ign, Warren G and others were in attendance.
The Long Beach native marker is dedicated in the "Recording" category and is 2,651 to honor the famous Hollywood Boulevard sidewalk.
"Snoop Dogg is one of those people who can do anything. He raps, acts, presents a television program, cooks and helps children from the community with his philanthropic work, "said Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame." He is a man of all ages and we welcome him to our Hollywood Walk of Fame. "
It's been another great year for Snoop, who also celebrates the 25th anniversary of his studio debut album, Puppy, which opened at number 1 on the Billboard 200 list after its release in November 1993. In October, Snoop published its first cookbook, From Crook to Cook, in which he promised to share "sandwiches to satisfy those snacks", along with recipes for food and drinks.
