Snoop Dogg Performs for President Obama [Video]
Snoop Dogg is a hit with any audience. The rapper recently performed for none other than President Barack Obama and other dignitaries at the 2013 Kennedy Center Honors honoring Herbie Hancock.
The rapper, who rocked a very dapper suit, performed Us3’s ‘Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia)’ and then jumped into a special version of his ‘Gin & Juice.’ Afterwards, he turned to Hancock and said, “Thank you for creating hip-hop.”
The performance was taped in early December and ran on CBS last week (Dec. 29). In addition to Herbie Hancock, others honored included Martina Arroyo, Shirley MacLaine, Billy Joel and Carlos Santana.
As part of the festivities, Snoop visited the White House with his family. “They done let me up in here, dawg, and I got my wife and my daughter,” said the West Coast MC in a video of the trip. “We at the White House doing it big. Now what?”
President Obama kissed Snoop’s wife on the cheek while the ‘Reincarnated’ rhymer shared a fist bump with Secretary of State John Kerry.
