The legend and Unc to us all, Snoop Dogg is making more history as it was previously announced there’s a biopic about his life in the works, and now, the iconic West Coast rapper has been nominated as an inductee into the 2023 Songwriters Hall Of Fame.
As Snoop recently acquired Death Row Records and continues to re-release legacy music and sign new artists, there’s no doubt that the Songwriters nomination came at the perfect time. Per a statement from the Hall Of Fame, the organization cited popular hits like “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” “Nuthin’ But A ‘G’ Thang,” “Young, Wild & Free,” “Gin & Juice,” and “Next Episode,” as key songs a part of Snoop’s catalog. Snoop Dogg was also nominated along with other iconic musical acts like Sade, Teddy Riley, Gloria Estefan and Patti Smith, to name a few.
The 2023 SHOF Induction & Awards Gala is scheduled to go down June 15, 2023, in New York City and voting for the new inductees is set to conclude on Wednesday, December 28. If inducted, Unc would join the ranks of Jay-Z, Missy Elliott, Pharrell, and Jermaine Dupri.
