Snoop Dogg will be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Nov. 19, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has announced.
The rapper is recognized in the recording category and will receive the 2,651st star on Hollywood Boulevard, in front of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
“Snoop Dogg is one of those people who can do anything. He raps, he acts, he hosts a television show, he cooks and helps community kids with his philanthropic work,” said Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “He is a man of the ages and we welcome him to our Hollywood Walk of Fame.”
Jimmy Kimmel will be on hand to honor Snoop. He will be joined by Leron Gubler, president and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which administers the stars.
Snoop is known as a pioneer of the G-funk hip-hop subgenre, which he helped popularize along with Dr. Dre. Throughout his career, Snoop has produced chart-topping hits like “Gin and Juice,” “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang,” “Drop It Like It’s Hot” and “Sensual Seduction.”
