Snoop has been in the game for close to 30 years, transitioning from one of the West Coast’s most prominent rappers in the ’90s, to an actor whose released his first gospel album this year, The 220 EP. Alongside his cookbook and the announcement of his cooking show with Martha Stewart getting a second season, Snoop gave credit to himself most of all as the reason for his success. “I want to thank me for believing in me, I want to thank me for doing all this hard work,” he said. “I wanna thank me for taking no days off. I wanna thank me for never quitting.”
Snoop now joins his contemporaries in hip-hop, Sean “Diddy” Combs and L.L. Cool J, who both received their own stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2008 and 2016, respectively.
