After acknowledging several important people in his life, including his parents, his wife Shante Broadus, DJ Warren G, Dr. Dre, Jimmy Kimmel and Quincy Jones, Snoop, 47, and then went on to thank himself for getting him to where he was today.
“Last but not least, I want to thank me for believing in me,” he began. “I want to thank me for doing all this hard work, I want to thank me for having no days off, I want to thank me for never quitting, I want to thank me for always being a giver and trying to give more than I receive.”
“I want to thank me for trying to do more rights than wrong, I want to thank me for just being me at all times,” he added. “Snoop Dogg, you a bad motherf**ker.”
In adding to his wife and parents, Snoop Dogg’s daughter Cori Broadus, 19, and son Julian Corrie Broadus, 20, were present. Snoop also has a son Corde Broadus, 24, and Cordell Broadus, 21, both of whom were not present.
Musician and music producer Pharrell Williams also was present at Monday’s ceremony to give his friend support. After Snoop’s star was uncovered, the pair greeted each other with big hugs before posing on the red carpet together.
One person noticeably missing from Snoop Dogg’s ceremony? His close friend Martha Stewart. The duo has been friends for a very long
time now and has co-hosted the Marther and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Part time together since 2008.
Although Stewart, who is 77, did not post any tributes to the rapper on social media, she has previously spoken very highly of Snoop and their friendship to a source.
“When you work with someone like Snoop, it’s like having a sidekick. How great it is,” Stewart told a source. “That’s why all the comedians have sidekicks and groups because it loosens them up and lets them be freer. Snoop is my freedom.”
Succeeding the ceremony, Snoop posted a photo of himself on Twitter, kneeling alongside his star. Keeping it simple, the rapper captioned the picture, “Blessed #HollywoodWalkOfFame”
He also shared several photos and videos to Instagram, where he told his followers, “Thank. U I’ am humbled”
Apart from his music career, Snoop has just added “author” to his resume. The rapper penned his first cookbook, From Crook to Cook, which hit bookshelves on Oct. 23.
The collection features 50 of Snoop’s favorite recipes like baked mac and cheese which he can be seen showing off on the cover, chicken and waffles and baby back ribs, and is planned by meals and events while also highlighting some of his entertaining tips.
Although all of the recipes are cannabis-free, Snoop shared his go-to munchies and his very own Gin and Juice recipe.
“You know it’s blazin’ up in my kitchen,” Snoop said. “I’m takin’ the cookbook game higher with a dipped and whipped collection of my favorite recipes, ya dig?”
