(Newser) – Snoop Dogg got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Monday, and the final person the rapper thanked in his speech wasn't God, his wife, or his parents—it was himself. "Last but not least, I want to thank me for believing in me. I want to thank me for doing all this hard work, I want to thank me for having no days off, I want to thank me for never quitting, I want to thank me for always being a giver and trying to give more than I receive," the 47-year-old said, per People. "I want to thank me for trying to do more [right] than wrong, I want to thank me for just being me at all times. Snoop Dogg, you a bad motherf-----."

Of course, he did also thank all of those aforementioned people and entities, plus colleagues including Dr. Dre and Quincy Jones, KTLA reports. And on Instagram, he thanked his fans. "Blessed," he captioned a photo of the star on Twitter. NBC Los Angeles notes the tribute came four days before the 25th anniversary of his debut album, Doggystyle. Snoop, born Calvin Broadus, is "the Susan Lucci of the Grammys," per the AV Club, having racked up 17 nominations since then with no wins. "Snoop Dogg is one of those people who can do anything. He raps, he acts, he hosts a television show, he cooks, and helps community kids with his philanthropic work," the producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame said in a news release. "He is a man of the ages and we welcome him to our Hollywood Walk of Fame." (He's also into weed.)
