When we found out that Snoop was bringing his Puff Puff Pass Tour to L.A. with a host of friends, we knew we had to be there for the smoke session. While we were looking forward to hearing all of Snoop’s hits, the crew was really looking forward to Bone Thugs N Harmony, DJ Quik and Warren G, but what we got was so much more.
With the arena caked in smoke from people of all backgrounds, Snoop put on a show for the ages – and we mean all ages. This show was a complete throwback to Snoop’s early years. It was almost as if Snoop wanted us to know what he listened to when he was a kid and the crowd mimicked that.
From the start we could tell that this show was going to be something different because Bone opened the show. Running through a quick set of their hits like “Crossroads,” “The Weed Man” and other smoked out hits, Bone left early with plans to catch a second show in Sacramento the same night. Of course, as always they paid tribute to the late Eazy E, their mentor and former label head at Ruthless Records.
From there we were thrown back into the 80’s and early 90’s with Hi-C and 2nd II None. In sync with sparking of another joint, the old school acts took us back to what life was really like in LA during the 90’s.
Following a trip down memory lane Warren G came out and put on one of the best performances of the night. The original regulator had the crowd rocking back and forth with a gang of hits like, “This DJ,” “Nobody Does It Better,” “Do You See,” and of course “Regulate.” This was def a major highlight of the show.
After the crowd reached a whole new level of G-Funk, Too Short came out and blew the whistle with a super ratchet stripper chick with fluffy go-go boots. It was a cool performance but most people stood in awe as Too Short and this stripper seemed to have a…. shall we say, uncanny chemistry.
Snoop closed out the night the a nearly every one of his hit records. Like ALL the hits – even the one’s where he was featured like DJ Khaled’s super remix of “All I Do Is Win.” It was over the top but it was a great way to end the night. Yea it was dope to see Snoop perform as he smoked out in an LA Rams jersey on stage, but at the end of the day it was like Snoop did this show for the older heads as a tribute to their influence on him.
