Last night (April 19) Williamsburg’s expansive new venue, Brooklyn Bowl, was filled to the brim with Snoop Dogg fans. Dressed in a Yankees bomber jacket, the West Coast legend and his Dogg Pound ran through an hour-long set of their greatest hits.
Snoop opened up with his classic track “Murder Was the Case” and kept the momentum going with explosive performance of “Gin and Juice.”
Towards the middle of the show The Doggfather held a tribute to hip-hop’s beloved fallen soldiers Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G, leading the crowd in a sing-along of the rap icons’ biggest songs, including “Hail Mary” and “Hypnotize,” respectively.
The show then took a smooth turn as the D-O-double G went into “Sexual Eruption.” Surprisingly, Snoop’s band transformed the laid back cut into a cover of House of Pain’s “Jump Around,” whipping the audience into a frenzy.
After finishing off his set with his funkdafied banger “Who Am I? (What’s My Name?),” Snoop reminded everyone of the three most important things to do everyday—brush your teeth, be thankful for another day…and you know the rest.
