The lineup includes Too Short, Warren G, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, B-Legit, Baby Bash, Afro Man, Spice 1, The Luniz, East Sidaz, and Suga Free. Music fans will remember Bone Thugs recently visited Lexington for a sold out Whitaker Bank Ballpark show with Nelly in May. And the Snoop show and Nelly have a promoter in common: Michigan-based Indigo Road Entertainment.
“Snoop Dogg is certainly a great choice for our first production at Rupp Arena.” Indigo Road’s Dan McCrath said in the concert announcement.
The 46-year-old rapper first caught ears working with Dr. Dre in 1992 and then dropped his solo debut, “Doggystyle,” in 1993 with monster hits such as “Gin & Juice.” He has since sold 35 million albums worldwide and diversified his career — and sometimes his name — into endeavors such as acting and reality TV, including the unlikely “Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party,” with style icon Martha Stewart on VH1. Dogg’s latest album is the gospel record, “Bible of Love.”
