Whenever Snoop Dogg rolls through for a televised daytime talk show discussion, the results are worth a viewing.

A new weed-free cookbook, his ongoing collaborative relationship with Martha Stewart, and career longevity were among the topics explored when Snoop stopped by Ellen DeGeneres' show Friday.

"I've always been, like, the class clown since I was a kid, so I was able to try different things," Snoop said when asked if he ever envisioned just how lengthy and diverse his presence in pop culture would become. "I was able to be different and not be afraid to, you know, go out on a limb and put my career, put my life, just put everything out there and let people know that I don't care about what you feel. I care about what I feel and sometimes me feeling good is me expressing myself in different ways and different avenues."

Later, Snoop was asked about his totally relatable decision to thank himself when presented with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last November. For Snoop, thanking himself just made sense.

"The speech was, it was spur of the moment," Snoop said about three minutes into their talk. "I didn't really have time to come up with nothing because I felt like the people that was there that were instrumental in my life, I wanted to speak to them. And then, I wanted to speak to myself because I felt like I was the one that did most of the work and I was the one that had to go out on the line and do it and make it happen. So I wanted to give myself some credit because, a lot of times, we fail to give ourselves a pat on the back and I wanted to take that moment to thank myself for doing all the work I did to get to that point."

Elsewhere, Snoop touched on the hotbox-complementing qualities of the show's bathroom setup and explained to the host the importance of the word "monopolizing." Catch the full thing up top.
