Rapper Snoop Dogg became famous for singles like "Who Am I (What's My Name)?" and "Gin and Juice," off his quadruple-platinum selling 1993 release, Doggystyle. Since then, Snoop has dabbled in film, television, online-only news--and coined the iconic catchphrase, "fo' shizzle my nizzle."
But after a trip to Jamaica in July, Snoop announced his rebirth as Snoop Lion and began making reggae instead of rap. While a forthcoming documentary of the journey and a new album, Reincarnated, are due in the Spring, Snoop will return to the Treasure Valley bearing his original moniker at Revolution Concert House, Thursday, Dec. 20.
According to some doomsayers, this may be the last chance to catch Snoop rapping. With the Mayan apocalypse scheduled to take place Friday, Dec. 21, the folks at Revolution have deemed this their gin and juice-soaked end of the world bash.
