Snoop Dogg hasn't managed to stay in the game for nearly three decades without some help. But at the end of the day, the person he has to thank the most is, well, himself. The big dog pays tribute to his longevity in the highlight reel video for "I Wanna Thank Me," which dropped on Wednesday (July 3). The Dah Dah-directed clip opens with footage of Snoop's acceptance speech during his recent Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony.
"I wanna thank me for believing in me. I wanna thank me for doing all this hard work. I wanna thank me for having no days off. I wanna thank me for never quitting,” Snoop says over footage of him rocking stages, flying around the world and supporting charitable causes. Once the grinding Battlecat beat from the upcoming album of the same name drops in, the video takes viewers through a celebration of Snoop's career from a young up-and-comer to a globe-trotting legend with platinum albums, TV shows and movies, stacks of cash, sold-out shows and, of course, an endless supply of the sticky icky.
"Who did it like me?/ Who want the dice? N—a bet it/ Twenty-plus years, I ain't even gotta sell it/ I ain't even got to show up to get hte money/ Mail it, I'm going in," he raps.
