Snoop Dogg's impossible shoes

Rapper Snoop Dogg has admitted he doesn't think many aspiring artists will be able to follow in his musical footsteps, as walking in his shoes is ''hard''.

Snoop Dogg thinks it will be very difficult for other artists to follow in his footsteps.

The iconic hip hop star - who was discovered by rap mogul Dr Dre in 1992 - believes other rappers should aim to be the best they can possibly be nut doesn't think anyone will be able to match his success.

He told Clash magazine: "It's hard to walk in these shoes, know what I'm saying? I always tell aspiring artists to be the best you can be because you never know what it's going to be.

"I never knew I was going be as successful as I was but people loved what I did so much, and I did what I did because I loved it so much. It's all about having a little bit of luck and being able to capitalise."

The 'Signs' hitmaker - whose debut album 'Doggystyle' went quadruple platinum in 1993 - also admitted playing at Glastonbury festival in Somerset, South-West England in June wasn't a particularly intimidating experience, because he just enjoys performing in front of people who love his music.

He said: "I love being in front of the people who love me. I played Glastonbury and it was 90,000, 50,000 whatever - I never pay attention to how many people - I'm all about the expression and the feeling that the people give me.

"If there's five people and they got a lot of energy, then those five people can bring a better show out of you than 90,000 because sometimes all those people don't have the energy of a smaller crowd."
