"Who Am I? (What's My Name?)" (commonly titled "What's My Name?") is the debut solo single by American hip hop recording artist Snoop Doggy Dogg. It was released on October 10, 1993, as the first single from his debut album, Doggystyle, with the record labels Death Row Records, Interscope Records, and Atlantic Records.[2] It was ranked number 456 on NME's "500 Greatest Songs of All Time".[3]

The song, produced by Dr. Dre, features samples and interpolations from George Clinton's "Atomic Dog" in its chorus and throughout, the bass line from Funkadelic's (Not Just) Knee Deep and an interpolation from Parliament's "Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof off the Sucker)" in its bridge. The song's intro contains a sample from The Counts' "Pack of Lies." A vocal sample ("the bomb") from Parliament's "P. Funk (Wants to Get Funked Up)" can be heard throughout.[citation needed]

The song and music video were parodied in director Rusty Cundieff's film, Fear of a Black Hat (1993).[citation needed] In the UK in 2014, the song was used on an advert for MoneySupermarket, which featured Snoop Dogg.[4]
