If you mention Long Beach to anyone outside of California, you get one of two responses: Thats where the Queen Mary is, or Oh, the home of Snoop Dogg! Since Calvin Snoop Dogg Broadus busted onto the hip-hop scene in 1992, he has consistently represented his home city with pride, becoming its unofficial ambassador of funk. And thats not the only thing he represents: Snoop has forever changed the rap scene with his charisma and smooth lyrics; he made the Crip Walk famous; invented his own language, and is the worlds number one advocate for legalizing marijuana. Knowing all this, how can you resist visiting your neighbor as he performs to a smoked outwe mean sold out!crowd for one night only?
