Snoop Dogg rose to prominence in 1992, when he appeared on Dr. Dre’s debut solo single “Deep Cover,” as well as on Dre’s debut solo album, The Chronic. Since then, Snoop has sold more than 23 million albums in the United States and 35 million albums worldwide. The famous rapper and talk show host recently posted a video from a private plane expressing his complete displeasure with The Grammys.
Snoop said to those in attendance at the awards ceremony in a quick selfie video: “Y’all have fun at the Grammys.” He went on to say “19 … I guess I’m 0 for 19” referring to the rapper’s 19 nominations since his solo rap career started back in the early 90s. He asked his fans, “How do you feel about that?”
The 50-year-old rap legend then rants about Kanye West being kicked off the show before smiling and showing off the interior of the private jet he’s flying in. Snoop’s fans comment reassuring the West Side legend that “2pac, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Snoop, Biggie, Bob Marley, and Diana Ross all have no Grammys … but are still legends.”
In the video, Martha Stewart’s pal and longtime co-star tries to play it cool, but he clearly feels disrespected by Grammy voters, who keep him from walking away with the gold. Snoop has released over 19 solo studio albums and has been featured on countless others without receiving a single golden gramophone. His most recent album, BODR, was released just a month ago, so it won’t be eligible until the next awards season, but Snoop isn’t holding his breath for this to be any different.
Snoop isn’t scheduled to perform or even attend the ceremony, and unless he has a legitimate chance of winning in the future, he doesn’t appear to be interested in doing so any time soon. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
