Apparently, Snoop Lion is the "Susan Lucci" of the Grammys.

That, is, according to the "Ashtrays and Heartbreaks" rapper himself.

Considering Snoop has racked up a total of 13 Grammy nominations and has never won one though…he might just have a point.

"Crown me Susan Lucci. Give me my award! Before I go Kanye West on ya'll and just take the (expletive deleted) thing!, " he said jokingly in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood.

Lucci was nominated a whopping 19 times before she won the Daytime Emmy in 1999, so perhaps this is the hip hopper's year?

Snoop Dogg, who changed his name to Snoop Lion in July 2012, is nominated for a Grammy for best reggae album for his latest project, Reincarnated.

Snoop collaborated with the likes of Akon, Rita Ora and Miley Cyrus on the album, teaming up with Cyrus for the pop-reggae song "Ashtrays and Heartbreaks."

"It was beautiful," Snoop told E! News exclusively about the "Wrecking Ball" crooner. "I was working on my reggae album [Reincarnated] and I needed a special vocalist to come through and assist me on a song and she was willing, ready and able and came and did her part. We shot a video and it's history from there."

In addition to his passion for music, it looks like Snoop has a thing for nail art as well, with the 42-year-old artist showing off his weed-inspired manicure on Instagram during Grammy week.

"Fresh nails!! Hahahahahahah," Snoop captioned the photo, which showed his nails painted and adorned with a weed symbol, "puff puff" and "pass."
