“He mastered the game through tests and challenges that earned him the respect of a college professor, except his game came from the streets,” said K-Dot (via Chicago Sun-Times). “He put [me] on game, so I would avoid the same pitfalls. … Snoop Dogg was the god and continues to be so.”Snoop continued to share his insight on stage while accepting his award.

Snoop also added- “To all the young rappers in the game, a lot of people don’t understand you,” he said. “Y’all are misunderstood. I was misunderstood at the beginning.
