The legend of Snoop Dogg seems to have usurped Snoop Dogg at this point: his personality has long been a bigger draw than his art. He recently released his 11th solo shot, Doggumentary, which featured guest appearances by Kanye, Bootsy Collins, and Willie Nelson–which, for any other artist, would be an Mars-blowing-up event. But it all came out just OK. That doesn’t matter for tonight, though: since Snoop exudes personality like no other, he always puts on a fun show. Just pray that he shows up on time.
