The legendary Snoop Dogg is bringing the “I Wanna Thank Me” tour to the Fillmore, get your tickets to the show here. Doors at 7:00 PM.
Snoop Dogg IS ONE OF THE MOST ICONIc and lovable faces to come out of the early 90’s hip-hop. His career transformations throughout the years have kept him on top of pop culture for nearly 30 years.
The rapper and worldwide star is coming to New Orleans this week and he’s bringing his I Wanna Thank Me tour to the Fillmore on Dec. 17.
When Snoop’s 1993 debut Doggystyle emerged at number one on the charts, he took his place at the top of the G-funk and gangsta rap scene. Through multiple run-ins with the law, being run out of foreign countries, court dates and shockingly violent lyrics he was an instant hit. Doggystyle went quadruple platinum within a year of its release.
Fans can thank that album for Snoop classics like “Gin & Juice” and “What’s my Name?”
After the chaos of Death Row Records and 2Pac‘s death, the public’s interest in gangsta rap slowly waned. Snoop began to reorient himself into a pop icon. He starred in films and made gestures towards the rock and pop communities.
In 2002 he put out his first album with Capitol Records, and the hits “Drop It Like It’s Hot” and “Signs” were all over the radios. By the time his star appearance on Katy Perry‘s “California Gurls” hit in 2010, Snoop Dogg was a household name.
Of course, the TV show with Martha Stewart and the reggae reboot of Snoop Lion added to the artist’s “WTF?” factor.
His latest tour is in celebration of his 17th album: I Wanna Thank Me. It’s described as “a nostalgic set that celebrates his legacy while asserting his enduring place in contemporary hip-hop.”
