"I want to thank me..."

I like the Dog but this reeks of that ugly American self congratulatory mindset. Me, me, and me.

Congrats but learn a little humbleness.

I will never forget the time when I was in early Jr High when Dr Dre released "Deep Cover." It was the first time Snoop Dogg appeared in mainstream and I instantly was a fan of his raspy lyricism. I wrote a letter to the local Sam Goody music store and asked if they sold any Snoop Doggy Dogg music. I don't know why I didn't just call. Anyways I got a letter back and the store staff said he never heard of him lol Months later The Chronic was released and the rest is history.

Yeah, and now he is doing some lame cooking show with Martha Stewart.  How very street.

How very street.

You think it would be better had he remained street-thug?

Snoop is was never “Gangsta” and doesn’t pretend to be, he attended a rich high school where he sold weed to Cameron Diaz.

Aside from rapping about pot and pimping, he also coaches a little league baseball team, and forbids anyone from calling him by his stage name, or even suggesting anything about his rapper status while coaching.

"Snoop was never “Gangsta” and doesn’t pretend to be, he attended a rich high school where he sold weed to Cameron Diaz."

Don't know where you are getting your information, but you are definitely misinformed. First off, Snoop was arrested for selling cocaine, and he was in jail frequently.

He was well known back in the days on Deathrow for being a member of the Rollin' 20 Crips. No one would dare pretend to be one of them unless they wanted a target on their back.

Nowadays, he's an old man. Of course he's not going to portray an adolescent behavior, especially not with his wealth and status.

How very sad that a person like him gets any respect or recognition.

I want to thank me for always being a giver, and trying to give more than I receive.

Funny. He doesn't sound overly generous here.

That's just his stage persona

That's like Muhammad Ali being humble

They earned their Hollywood stars for that bombasticness
