Snoop Dogg wants to spend his 40th birthday with his grandma
The `Science` rapper - who reaches the milestone age on October 20 - does not want to throw a big party and will likely just spend it with close loved ones including wife Shante Taylor because the only thing he is happy about is "being alive".
He said: "More people worry about my birthday than I do.
"I`m more concerned about my grandmother`s birthday, my wife`s birthday. I`m more about giving.
"I`m not into doing things for myself because a lot of great things have already happened to me. To be alive and spend time with my grandma is enough."
Despite that, Snoop - whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. - wants to continue to spread the message of "funk" as he grows older.
He said in an interview with the Daily Star newspaper: "The funk will never die, as long as SnoopDogg is here, my seeds have been planted.
"I planted so many seeds in young MCs all around the world. What`s happening right now is the funk is having a reinvention. People are cooking with their own flavours."
He recently revealed he would like to make a move to the UK at some point.
Snoop said: "Would I live in the UK? I wouldn`t mind living here. I think I could really enjoy myself.
"You know what, I`m going to say this and I mean it, if all else fails and I`ve got to shake, rattle `n` roll and get on the woo-wop, this is going to be my heeyah zone. Yessuh."
