According to an announcement by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, Snoop Dogg will be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on November 19.
“Snoop Dogg is one of those people who can do anything,” notes said Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “He raps, he acts, he hosts a television show, he cooks, and helps community kids with his philanthropic work.
She adds, “He is a man of the ages and we welcome him to our Hollywood Walk of Fame.”
With over 35 million albums sold worldwide, and too many outside of music ventures to note in one place — the OG will become the 2651st star on Hollywood Blvd., and (astonishingly) only the 11th representative of Hip Hop culture. Queen Latifah was the first, receiving her star in January of 2006. Diddy, Pharrell, LL Cool J, Pitbull, Ice Cube, Cypress Hill, will.i.am, Tupac Shakur, and Mary J. Blige have been honored in the years since.
