To be honest, it feels like Snoop Dogg should’ve gotten a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame years ago, but the rapper was finally honored for his contributions earlier today on Hollywood Blvd. The West Coast rappers’ shared a little speech during his ceremony which included a special, heartfelt shout out to Dr. Dre.
Snoop Dogg has a few people to thank for his success in the rap game and Dr. Dre is certainly at the top of that list. During his speech at the Walk Of Fame ceremony, Snoop Dogg gave Dr. Dre a special shout out for believing in him since the jump.
“Dr. Dre believed in me when I really wasn’t nothing and I’mma say that because I mean that ’cause I really didn’t know what I wanted to do,” he said. “When Dr. Dre gave me the opportunity, he really — he didn’t look at me like somebody that was less than him. He looked at me like an equal and we always been brothers from that day… When you dealin’ with a star and you comin’ in as a nobody, it’s easy for the star to down look you or play you low, but for him to look at me even, that’s why we never said no to each other to this day because we always look at each other as brothers.”
He added, “Dr. Dre, I want to tell you I love you, cuz, for being my brother through hard times, real times and good times.”
Aside from Dr. Dre, Snoop did make sure to thank the most important person in his career: himself.
“I want to thank me for believing in me. I want to thank me for doing all this hard work,” he said. “Snoop Dogg, you a bad motherfucker.”
