Snoop Pays Tribute to 2Pac, Shows ‘How the West Was Won’ at L.A. Concert

Snoop DoggNo one does the West Coast better than Snoop Dogg, so he made sure to show extra love to the Los Angeles crowd when his How The West Was Won tour rolled into Club Nokia Thursday (Nov. 19). Openers for the headlining act, rappers Nipsey Hustle and the legendary DJ Quik warmed the crowd up for ‘Tha Doggfather”s arrival.

Snoop hit the stage alongside Dogg Pound members Kurupt and Daz Dillinger performing a plethora of hits dating back to his 1992 debut appearance on Dr. Dre‘s ‘The Chronic‘ album. Among the many crowd favorites were ‘Who Am I (What’s My Name),’ ‘P.I.M.P’ and ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot.’ Rapper-turned-actor Xzibit made a special appearance to perform the single ‘X‘ while Too Short ran through his single ‘Blow the Whistle,’ before heading backstage.
Towards the end of his set Snoop paid tribute to his former Death Row label mate Tupac Shakur. ‘Who got love for Tupac?!’ Snoop asked while Pac’s posthumous single ‘Hail Mary‘ played in the background. Members of the crowd held up lighters while Snoop transitioned into ‘2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted.’

With over twenty years in the rap game, Snoop is showing no plans of slowing down. The rapper will release his tenth studio album ‘Malice N Wonderland‘ on Dec. 8.
