Rapper Snoop Dogg Talks The GRAMMYs with CBS SUNDAY MORNING Today

Rapper Snoop Dogg has been nominated 13 times in the past for Grammy Awards and never won. He's failed to win so many times that in an interview with CBS SUNDAY MORNING WITH CHARLES OSGOOD he compares himself to soap star Susan Lucci, who famously was nominated 19 times before winning a Daytime Emmy.

"I am the Susan Lucci of the Grammys," the rapper tells Lee Cowan in an interview to be broadcast today, Jan. 26, 2014 (9:00 AM ET) on the CBS Television Network. "Crown me Susan Lucci. Give me my award! Before I go Kanye West on ya'll and just take the (expletive deleted) thing!"

Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, has sold more than 30 million albums. His latest work, Reincarnated, is nominated for a Grammy in the best reggae album category for the THE 56TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS®.

Reincarnated is a departure for Snoop. He calls it a spiritual transformation, signaled by his taking on a new name - Snoop Lion. He says the new work is part of a smarter, wiser Snoop, and a turn from the earlier days when he was a poster child for guns, drugs and violence.

"I'm so sick and tired of all this violence, this gun violence, and how could I speak on it? You know, being one who has advocated violence and gun violence? And the only way I could do it was through a song that spoke from the heart," he tells Cowan.

In a wide-ranging interview, Snoop Dogg talks about growing up in Long Beach, Calif., about how he's changed as he's gotten older, about his marijuana use, and about how much he enjoys coaching youth football. In fact, one of his former players, Ronnie Hillman, will be going to the Super Bowl with the Denver Broncos.

Snoop Dogg likes being looked at by his players as a coach more than as a rap star, he tells Cowan.

"It's better," he says. "Because they don't care about my flaws, you know, as a rapper you know they bring up my flaws, when I went to jail, I was an ex-drug dealer, whatever ex I was, it seems to linger, but when it comes to football, they don't care about the ex, they care about what's right now."

CBS SUNDAY MORNING is broadcast Sundays (9:00-10:30 AM, ET) on the CBS Television Network. Rand Morrison is the executive producer.
