Snoop Dogg


Puff Puff Pass Tour featuring Snoop Dogg

Dec. 23
6 p.m.

Last time we saw Snoop Dogg ’round these parts, he roared into Soundset 2013 as his Rastafied Snoop Lion persona (mercifully, he played a medley of classic Snoop jams). Since then, the silky-flowing G-funk legend has added predictably wacky extracurriculars to his stacked rap résumé, including induction into the WWE Hall of Fame and a brand-new cooking show with Martha Stewart, VH1’s Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party. Musically, the 45-year-old born Cordozar Broadus Jr. has issued two post-Lion albums: the Pharrell-produced Bush in 2015 and July’s Beyoncé-inspired Coolaid, his 14th full-length. Snoop’s current Puff Puff Pass Tour 2 is the smoky successor to his 2001 jaunt that later spawned a concert film. This time around, he’ll be joined by ’90s hip-hop hitmakers Bone Thugs-N-Harmony (“Tha Crossroads”) and Warren G (“Regulate”), plus former Death Row Records affiliates Tha Dogg Pound and DJ Quik. Expect the Doggfather to tout the merits of THC (he invests in a weed company) and possibly diss President-elect Donald Trump, whom he’s described as a “punk-ass.”
