Snoop Dogg brought a little Doggystyle to the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The West Coast rap pioneer was honored with a star on Hollywood Boulevard Monday, to coincide with the 25th anniversary of his debut album, Doggystyle.
Released on Nov. 23, 1993, the album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and sold more than 11 million copies worldwide.
It was produced by Dr. Dre and Suge Knight, and featured Warren G, Kurupt, Nanci Fletcher and the late Nate Dogg, just to name a few.

Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, was joined on Hollywood Boulevard by Warren G, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, record producer Quincy Jones, hip-hop mogul Dr. Dre and Los Angeles City Councilman Mitch O’Farrell in front of El Capitan theatre, where Kimmel’s show is taped.
A massive crowd of fans lined the boulevard to offer the rapper their support.
After thanking the Walk of Fame, his family, friends and fans, Snoop Dogg ended his acceptance speech by joking, “I want to thank me.”
“I want to thank me for believing in me,” the Long Beach native said. “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 right than wrong. I want to thank me for just being me at all times.”
He concluded by saying, “Snoop Dogg, you’re a bad motherf-cker!”
