Snoop Dogg schools Louisville with memorable West Coast G-Funk lesson along with friends Warren G and Trae Tha Truth.
A sold-out Louisville Palace, full of fans ready to party welcomed Snoop Dogg, Warren G and their entourage to Louisville. Touring in support of his latest album (and incredibly his 17th studio album), I Wanna Thank Me, released last August by Doggy Style Records and Empire Distribution, tonight’s show proved to be one of the hardest tickets of the new year to come by.
As the house lights dropped, everyone was immediately on their feet as Snoop Dogg causally saunters on stage and directly into “What U Talkin’ Bout’”, the first song from the aforementioned I Wanna Thank Me album and the party was on.
Bookmarking the stage were provocatively dressed dancers spinning around on poles while a stage length video board flashing through a seemingly never-ending history of Snoop’s life and friends who have been part of the West-Coast G-Funk scene for several decades further accented the show experience. On stage Over the next 2 hours, one iconic song after another came rolling off the Louisville Palace stage including the Akon-featured track “I Wanna Fuck You” further amping up the overall “party-like atmosphere”.
One of the most memorable highlights of the evening was Snoop’s tribute to some of his fallen peers with an easy-going medley beginning with Nipsey Hustle’s “One Blood, One Cuzz” along with Eazy-E’s “Boyz-n-the-Hood,” Notorious B.I.G.’s “Hypnotize” and Tupac’s “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted,”. Not to be forgotten was a lively rendition of “Ain’t No Fun” with Warren G on stage with Snoop as a tribute to Nate Dogg.
Unfortunately, all good things come to an end and tonight was no different as Snoop Dogg closed out a memorable evening in Louisville with the iconic “Gin and Juice” putting the final touches on an evening that will not soon be forgotten.
Legendary pioneer of west coast Hip-Hop and Grammy-nominated Warren G opened the show with a smooth set of classic G-funk that crowd was definitely into. After lighting up a blunt and sharing it with folks along the front of the stage, Warren G ended his set with his biggest hit, “Regulate.”
Houston based Trae Tha Truth got the night started with a quick set focused on his new album “Tha Truth Pt. 2” Album.
