Snoop Dogg pays tribute to himself in new music video
Ahead of the release of his new album (his 17th) Snoop Dogg has unveiled a new music video for the title track, ‘I Wanna Thank Me’.
The song – produced by DJ Battlecat, alludes to his viral acceptance speech when the rapper received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in November.
The video – which was directed by Dah Dah – opens up on the rapper famously saying, “I wanna thank me for believing in me, I wanna thank me for doing all this hard work”.
Scenes from his speech have been re-cut with images of Dogg performing on stage, coaching a youth football league and even visiting a local farm.
The video does not showcase Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart’s cooking show, nor his new cookbook (of which these recipes are Esquire favourites).
‘I Wanna Thank Me’ will appear on the Californian rapper’s new album of the same name, that is due out at a yet-unknown date this summer.
