Snoop Dogg will officially be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. According to Billboard, the organization’s 52nd annual Induction and Awards Gala will take place on Thursday, June 15, at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.
The "Drop It Like It's Hot" rapper will join previous inductees from the Hip Hop community like Jay-Z, Jermaine Dupri, and Chad Hugo and Pharrell Williams of The Neptunes.
"Damn, Songwriters Hall of Fame? That's big," Snoop Dogg said in a video posted on his Instagram account. "And just to think, I been telling people for the past seven years 'Who you wanna do a song with Snoop?' I'd always say Sade and now we going to the Songwriters Hall of Fame on the same day."
He added, "God is good. Just a little kid from the east side of Long Beach that had a big a** dream. Yeah it's true that dreams could come true. If it happened to me it could happen to you. Keep dreaming, keep believing, keep being you."
The Songwriters Hall of Fame was established in 1969. According to the institution's official website, their "ongoing mission is to celebrate and honor the contributions and legacies of songwriters of all genres of music while developing and nurturing the next generation of songwriters through Master Sessions, songwriting craft forums, scholarships and digital initiatives." A songwriter can only be considered for induction 20 years after the release of a song they wrote.
