Snoop Dogg is in the running for an induction into the 2023 Songwriters Hall of Fame.
According to the SHOF website, the institution aims to “celebrate and honor the contributions and legacies of songwriters of all genres of music,” but recognition doesn’t go to just anyone. Songwriters become eligible for induction 20 years after the first significant commercial release of a song, and they have to have a notable discography.
Snoop is one of 12 nominated in the performing songwriters category, along with Sade [shah-DAY] Adu, Gloria Estefan, Patti Smith, R.E.M., Bryan Adams and Steve Winwood; another 12 are nominated in the nonperforming songwriters category.
The 54th annual Induction & Awards Gala will take place June 15, 2023, in New York City.
