Hip-hop superstar SNOOP DOGG says he feels like he has had a successful career because all rappers aspire to Snoop, Death Row Records and Dr Dre.

As the GIN AND JUICE singer has been involved with all three, he says that whether he is liked or not, he is respected.

Snoop says, "Every rapper now patterns his sh*t after Death Row, Dr Dre or Snoop Dogg, and I fall into pretty much all those categories.

"So that puts me into the boss status, so whether you're hating me or not, you have to look up to me, because there's something about me that's in your sh*t, whether you like it or not."
