Music industry legend Snoop Dogg will host the sixth annual Global Spin Awards airing next month exclusively on REVOLT TV. The premiere awards show honors the most dynamic and talented DJs from around the world and, this year, DJ Khaled, Calvin Harris, and Metro Boomin are among the most-nominated entertainers, while both Timbaland and Jermaine Dupri will be honored for their storied careers.
Timbaland will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award while Dupri will take home the Breaking Barriers Award.
(Snoop himself, also known as DJ Snoopadelic, is nominated for Celebrity DJ of the Year.)
Shawn Prez, founder of the GSAs, said about their choice of host, "Through the Awards, it is our mission to recognize the diverse, bold and remarkable DJs that have helped shaped the music industry into what it is today. Snoop Dogg is a legend and a trailblazer in the industry, and we are honored that he will be joining us to host this year's Global Spin Awards."
As the GSAs will premiere only on REVOLT TV, CEO Roma Khanna added, "REVOLT is thrilled to partner with the Global Spin Awards and exclusively broadcast the celebration of DJ talent from around the world. With Snoop hosting, it is sure to be a dynamic and highly-coveted event."
