A Very Merry Christmas Eve’s Eve Featuring Snoop Dogg
The holiday season can be a very stressful time between juggling family, friends, traveling. If you’re in the Tucson, Arizona area why not take some time before the hectic week to unwind with Snoop Dogg himself? Following the Bone Thugs ‘N Harmony show just a few days prior, the Rialto has booked some top acts for December.
For those of you who don’t know who Snoop Dogg is — do those people even exist still? He has been active as an artist since I’ve been alive, AKA the early 90’s. Snoop’s career is multi-faceted as a rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, TV personality, and an actor. Best known as Snoop Dogg, but formerly known as a plethora of nicknames: Snoop Lion, Snoop Doggy Dog. The name has been somewhat household for a long time with hits like “Gin and Juice.”
Snoop’s debut album came out in 1993 and was produced by Dr. Dre through Death Row Records. And in 1997 his album, The DoggFather, went double platinum. Since the ’90’s he has been a staple in the rap scene working with some of the greatest musical artists of all time. Not only limited to his musical talent though, Snoop has also acted in several films and created a brand of himself. Several adjectives that come to mind being: chill, no bullshit, talented, and the phrase smoke weed every day. Just by being himself he has built an empire.
