Concert Review: Snoop Dogg Revives Puff Puff Pass Tour
Fifteen years ago, LBC’s Snoop Dogg, then Snoop Doggy Dogg birthed his renowned Puff Puff Pass Tour. With some of Cali’s OG’s, Snoop resurrected his famed tour. On December 10th, Snoop, Bone Thugs, Too Short, Warren G, Dogg Pound, and special guest Mack 10, lit the Microsoft Theater up with some of their classic hits.
Arriving at the Microsoft Theater was like a Black Friday sale. What seemed like thousands of fans, surrounded the venue waiting to witness Cali history. Everyone in line anxiously waited to get through security detail and into their seats.
Walking into the crowded venue, Kush penetrated my nose. It was only right to light one up if you’re going to be attending a Snoop concert. I mean it is called the “Puff Puff Pass Tour!”
I had arrived late and missed Bone Thugs, which was upsetting, but walked in just in time to see 2nd II None, The Luniz, and Hi-C.
Big Boy from the real 92.3 came out to introduce a “special guest” – Inglewood’s finest, Mack 10. The rapper is known for hits such as “Backyard Boogie” and “Foe Life.” This performance was a surprise to everyone since DJ Quik was supposed to be on the set list, but didn’t perform.
Next up, was Mr. Regulator himself, Warren G. You best believe Warren’s set was the shiiiii and you best believe the Long Beach native paid homage to his good friend, the late Nate Dogg. The rapper performed his greatest hits from the 90’s and early 2000’s with the crowd smoking it up.
When Too Short hit the stage, you already know he has to come out with a bang. The bay area rapper brought out a female dancer to hype the crowd up. The fellas had no complaints as she danced in shorts to songs like “Blow The Whistle” and “Gettin’ It.”
The moment we’ve been waiting for all night finally arrived. Snoop Dogg! The crowd stood on their feet as he went through rap history with some of his greatest hits. “Drop It Like It’s Hot, “Amerikaz Most Wanted,” “Beautiful,” “Pimp” and much, much more. Warren G joined his friend on stage to perform some of their music together. Snoop paid homage to friend Tupac with a huge banner behind him of the fallen legend.
Overall, the concert was a success and definitely brought back memories for everyone in the audience.
