Snoop Dogg rose to fame at the age of 28, after featuring on Dr. Dre’s 1992 debut album The Chronic.
But despite almost 30 years of success in the industry, including 17 studio albums and countless awards, the 49-year-old insists he’s just getting started.
‘I don’t keep track or take stock. I’ll look back on my stats when the season ends, but for now I’m in my prime,’ he told Daily Mail Australia on Wednesday.

‘I always tell people to be themselves. Don’t put on airs for attention,’ he said of the advice he imparts on those trying to break through in a crowded rap game.
The Drop It Like It’s Hot hit-maker has recently been lending his famous face to numerous ad campaigns, with SodaStream becoming the star’s latest collaboration.
The 2020 holiday campaign is all about life’s small and simple pleasures, and Snoop says he’s got one small pleasure in particular: ‘It’s all natural and comes from mother earth. It’s green and herbal.’
