Check out behind the scenes footage of Snoop Dogg, accompanied by his wife Shante, and daughter Cori, at the White House for the 2013 Kennedy Center Honors.

Snoop even gets 'pound,' a.k.a. ' the fist bump' from Senator John Kerry, and oddly enough it wasn't weird.

This years 36th annual event honored: Martina Arroyo, Herbie Hancock, Billy Joel, Shirley MacLaine, and, Carlos Santana.
