Snoop Dogg is expected to release a new album this summer. In anticipation, the veteran rapper is today sharing the effort’s title track, “I Wanna Thank Me”, and corresponding video.
Both the LP and single take their name from Snoop’s now-famous Hollywood Walk of Fame speech given last fall. “I wanna thank me,” he said as he accepted his star. “I wanna thank me for believing in me. I wanna thank me for doing all this hard work. I wanna thank me for having no days off.”
The Long Beach MC continues to celebrate himself on today’s new track, which features production from Battlecat. The accompanying visual compiles footage from throughout Snoop’s successful career, including numerous tours, recording sessions, accolades, and riches.
Check out the “I Wanna Thank Me” video below, followed by Snoop Dogg’s viral speech.
