Snoop Dogg Unveils Walk Of Fame Star Like Only He Can

Snoop Dogg Unveils Walk Of Fame Star Like Only He Can

There were some heart-warming scenes on Hollywood Boulevard yesterday as Snoop Dogg was finally recognised for his long career by being awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Snoop arrived dressed in typically suave fashion alongside his childhood sweetheart and wife of 21 years, Shante Taylor. Snoop - who is actually called Calvin Broadus - was also accompanied by his kids.

Taylor and the Doggfather have three kids together - 24-year-old Cordé, Cordell, 21, and 19-year-old Cori.

Snoop also has a son from another relationship called Julian Corrie, who is 20.

Shante and Snoop did briefly split back in 2004, but then reunited and cancelled their divorce before renewing their vows.

The unveiling ceremony saw Snoop and his family looking made up as TV host Jimmy Kimmel made a speech about the rapper, whose album Doggystyle will turn 25 in only four days.

The star is actually outside the El Capitan Entertainment Center, which is where Jimmy Kimmel Live! is filmed.

The ceremony was also attended by some luminaries of the music world, such as Snoop's friends Dr Dre, Pharrell Williams, Warren G and Quincy Jones.

Snoop made sure to pay special thanks to the one person who has made it all happen - himself.

He said: "I want to thank me for believing in me, I want to thank me for doing all this hard work.

"I wanna thank me for taking no days off. I wanna thank me for never quitting."

This isn't the only recognition that has been coming Snoop's way recently. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce recently awarded him an accolade for his work as a businessman.

The famously has his fingers in a lot of pies - sometimes literally. Not only has he sold millions of records, he has also directed and starred in movies (some of which are not exactly suitable for public consumption, if you catch my drift), he's released a cookery programme and book, and runs his own cannabis business.

Oh, then there is his fashion line, the millions of dollars' worth of merchandise that he has created and sold over the years.

He's a busy guy, basically. And he's not short of a couple of quid either, you'd have to imagine.

This might be a recognition of his long and successful career, but he is showing no signs that he is winding up. He's about to jet off on tour with a load of other artists for the 'Puff Puff Pass US Tour'.

That should be a fairly riotous affair, you'd reckon.
