Snoop Dogg to receive the “I Am Hip Hop” Award at the 2016 BET Hip Hop Awards


With an illustrious career on the microphone spanning well over two decades, legendary LBC bred lyricist, Snoop Dogg, has rightfully earned the coveted “I Am Hip Hop” Award at the 2016 BET Hip-Hop Awards…
As the 44-year-old West Coast native passes his Hip-Hop awards hosting torch onto social media king, DJ Khaled, this year, he’ll be crowned with one of the highest honors a rapper can receive from their genre. 
Under the guidance of musical genius, Dr. Dre, Snoop came out the gate swinging with his highly acclaimed inaugural LP, Doggystyle, in 1993, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart and sold over 800,000 copies in the first week. 
The weed-loving entertainment icon would go on to make himself at home at the top of the charts with his discography of iconic albums including The Dogg Father, Da Game Is To Be Sold, Not To Be Told (1998) and No Limit Top Dogg (1999). 
Providing Hip-Hop diehards with the perfect mix of hardcore-edginess and twerk-inducing pop, Uncle Snoop also masterminded a series of number one hit singles such as “Gin & Juice,” “Who Am I? (What’s My Name?),” “Nuthin’ But A ‘G’ Thang,” “Beautiful,” “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” “Signs,” “Sensual Seduction” and “I Wanna Rock.”

While continuing to cater to the insatiable cravings of his fans with his newly released 14th studio album, COOLAID, a very busy Snoop Dogg also hosts the weekly “GGN News” series on his WestFestTV YouTube channel, oversees cannabis product line “Leafs by Snoop,” and weed-happy website MERRYJANE.COM, ANDDD tirelessly flexes his philanthropic bones throughout his community…

In their honorable acknowledgement of the multi-platinum selling artist, BET describes Snoop as, “one of the most recognized and respected entertainers of all time,” and says the emcee “defines Hip Hop history.”
As this year’s “I Am Hip Hop” Award recipient, the heralded 213 representative joins an exclusive class of music royals who have previously been given the award including Ice Cube, Salt-N-Pepa, Russell Simmons, KRS-One, Scarface, LL Cool J, and more. 
The 2016 BET Hip Hop Awards will air on Oct 4 at 8:00 PM on BET.
