Rapper Snoop Dogg wants to win more awards and is sick of being nominated and never being victorious
Snoop Dogg wants to win more awards.
The 'Gangsta Luv' rapper has been nominated for several Grammys but has never won and is tired of coming second best.
He said: "My peers respect me but the industry don't. Not that I really base my career on winning awards or things of that nature, but it's like, if I get nominated 20, 30 times and don't win, why keep nominating me? What is it? Do I have to act a complete a*s and make people hate me to get to where I want to be?"
The 38-year-old hip-hop star also feels people don't have enough respect for him because they have seen his soft side on his reality TV show 'Father Hood'.
Snoop - who was shown as a loving family man in his fly-on-the-wall series - added to Britain's Times newspaper: "Nice guys finish last. When I had the attitude of thug, gangster, no respect, that bad boy attitude, I was always coming in first.
"When I first started coming to London and they had a handcuff on me, those were the wonder years when I just didn't care. Now that I'm more concerned and caring and a father and a husband - it just seems, like, the nicer I get, the less respect I get."
