Snoop Dogg has announced his "Puff Puff Pass Tour Part 2." Joining the iconic Long Beach, California rapper on the jaunt are pioneering Cleveland rap crew Bone thugs-n-harmony, longtime Snoop Dogg collaborator Warren G, Compton icon DJ Quik, and West Coast staples Tha Dogg Pound. Snoop Dogg protégés the Pomona City Movement and LBC Movement are also on the bill, which features several of the West Coast's most prominent acts, as well as its next generation of stars.
The "Puff Puff Pass Tour Part 2" is scheduled to kick off December 5 in Rapid City, South Dakota and will conclude on December 15 in Billings, Montana. The tour, which is still adding dates, is a follow up to Snoop's iconic "Puff Puff Pass Tour" in 2001 and 2004's Puff Puff Pass tour documentary.
Snoop Dogg released his acclaimed Coolaid album July 1. The 20-track collection features the hit single "Kush Ups" with Wiz Khalifa, as well as the autobiographical "Legend" and "Super Crip." Too $hort joins Snoop Dogg on the project's "Don't Stop."
Mentored by the late Eazy-E, Bone thugs-n-harmony put Cleveland, Ohio on the rap map in the mid-1990s. The music of Krayzie Bone, Layzie Bone, Bizzy Bone, Wish Bone, and Flesh-N-Bone featured a groundbreaking blend of rapping and singing that stands among the most distinctive and innovative in rap history.
With his landmark Regulate... G-Funk Era LP, Warren G helped usher in G-Fun, a sonic revolution that redirected the sound of rap with its laid-back vibe and equally chill vocal style.
DJ Quik stands as rap's preeminent rapper-producer, while Tha Dogg Pound (Kurupt and Daz) is one of the best rap duos of all time and made their debut alongside Snoop Dogg on Dr. Dre's The Chronic LP (1992) and Snoop's classic first album, Doggystyle (1993).
Pomona City Movement and LBC Movement are two of Snoop Dogg's newest protégés.
