Snoop Dogg talks about what he learned after being a mentor on Season 20 of 'The Voice.'

In Season 20 of the hit singing competition series The Voice, Snoop served as a Mega Mentor alongside coaches Blake Shelton, John Legend, Nick Jonas, and Kelly Clarkson. 

"These young artists have an opportunity that not many others get," the "Gin and Juice" rapper exclusively told Distractify. "It’s great to see them take advantage of this whole concept. Not only am I a mentor, but I do learn a lot from doing this. You learn to appreciate every day once you get to my level."

Since launching his career, Snoop has not only excelled in music but has become a successful business entrepreneur. However, the rapper always remembers his roots. 

He told us that when he was younger, Snoop had a lot of mentors in "music, football, and everything else" who were "from all walks of life." "The best advice I took from them all was to never forget your roots," he added. "Your family and where you are from is what truly matters."

Sound advice, Doggfather!
