Snoop Dogg


Roseland (map) Northwest
Thu., March 4, 8 p.m. 2010 All Ages


Fifteen years after "Gin and Juice," you may wonder how Snoop Dogg, far from a played-out novelty, continues to be a relevant part of mainstream hiphop—and pop—culture. My conclusion is that he is deceptively savvy; while making a legacy and caricature of himself through "-izzle" and his reality TV work, Snoop never stopped making fresh contributions to his gangster rap roots, including 2009's "Gangsta Luv," a masterpiece of poetic pimpery ("Workin' you like a shift/I give it to you like a gift"). Meanwhile, he is married to his high-school sweetheart, coaches high-school sports, and was recently named creative chairman of seminal West Coast gangster rap label Priority, charged with its re-launch to relevancy in the digital age. So how does he do it? In his own words, "Even though it's all for the ladies, I know exactly how to keep it straight G, ya dig?" Yes Snoop, I do. MARANDA BISH
