A star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame will be unveiled (yesterday) Monday, Nov. 19, honoring 16-time Grammy-nominated rapper Snoop Dogg, four days before the 25th anniversary of the release of his debut album “Doggystyle.”
Talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, legendary record producer Quincy Jones and the rapper Dr. Dre will join Snoop Dogg at the 11:30 a.m. ceremony in front of the El Capitan Entertainment Center on Hollywood Boulevard where Kimmel’s show is taped.
The star will be the 2,651st since the completion of the Walk of Fame in 1961 with the first 1,558 stars. The ceremony will be livestreamed on walkoffame.com.
Born Calvin Broadus on Oct. 20, 1971 in Long Beach, he got his stage name from his mother Beverly who joked he looked like the Peanuts character Snoopy.
