Snoop Dogg burst onto the hip-hop scene in 1992 as a relative unknown on Dr. Dre's landmark solo debut, The Chronic, managing to upstage Dre while solidifying his status as one of the major new voices in rap. Since then, his fame has only grown, to the point where people who don't even listen to hip hop still know exactly who Snoop is, even though his recent recording output has sadly been reduced to occasional cameos and guest verses. But Snoop still knows how to work a crowd with the best of them, and he brings enough smash hits with him on stage to keep audience members' hands in the air all evening. Everyone was a bit surprised when this show was announced, as people were not exactly sure how well Snoop Dogg and the Cabooze would mesh. But obviously more than enough fans were curious to find out, and the show quickly sold out; Snoop graciously added a show earlier in the evening for those who didn't get tickets the first time around. Snoop Dogg is a born entertainer and one of the most magnetic artists in the music industry; seeing him in the intimate confines of the Cabooze is bound to be quite an uplifting experience.
