snoop dogg & family at white house*”Started From the Bottom” is not just a song title by Drake.

For a lot of folks it has real meaning. One of them is Snoop Dogg/Lion. You see, Snoop and his family were recently invited to the White House, something the rapper from the LBC always dreamed of.

Actually he says he dreamed of performing for President Obama at the White House, but didn’t know what song he could perform since his music is so hardcore.

Well, he hasn’t actually performed at the White House for the president, but he did do his thing at the 36th Kennedy Center Honors where Mr. and Mrs. Obama were present and later he and his family did indeed pay a visit to the White House.

Taped earlier this month, the show aired Sunday night on CBS and the Doggfather, an honorary guest, performed a special tribute to jazz icon Herbie Hancock during the event. If you missed it, check out the video below. He had the dignitaries and the Obamas getting’ down like thay were at a house party in Compton.

Also below is video from Snoop and family’s White House visit. Dressed in a fitted tuxedo, Snoop toured the White House, along with his wife, Shante, and his daughter Cori B. Off camera, President Obama kissed Shanti on the cheek, while Snoop shared a fist bump with Secretary of State John Kerry.

“They done let me up in here, dawg, and I got my wife and my daughter,” said Snoop in a YouTube video. “We at the White House doing it big. Now what?”

Hmm, we guess you could say that Snoop Dogg has finally made it from the bottom. Word to Drake.
