Snoop Dogg and his High School Reunion: Snoop’s High School Reunion tour hits Irvine on Sunday, as the local rap legend heads up a bill that also features Wiz Khalifa, Too Short, Snoop’s old pal Warren G, Berner, and DJ Drama. That’s a lot of hip-hop talent on one bill, and Snoop alone would be worth the ticket price. The man just gets better with age.

LA Weekly culture editor Lina Lecaro wrote about Snoop and his family’s business enterprise back in November.

“Long Beach’s own Snoop Dogg is legendary for his laid-back yet biting flow, which makes any music he puts out or guests on ooze with languid cool,” she wrote. “Snoop has always brought the badass without the belligerence, the hype without the hurry, allowing his words and vibe to glide and shine on record and on stage in a way that seems effortless yet fully expressed. This, coupled with his smooth persona and style, has made him one of the most iconic figures in hip-hop, a steady and seductive voice in a sea of bodaciousness that’s remained relevant for over three decades. But there’s one thing the D-O-Double GG has never, ever been chill about: his brand. Fo shizzle (we had to use it once!), Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, might be the busiest, most influential – and inspirational – hip hop mogul out there, with so many grassroots endeavors, companies big and small, high-profile collabs, diverse endorsements and novel ideas under his belt, it’s almost impossible to keep track, especially lately.”

Snoop Dogg and his High School Reunion: The event takes place at 6 p.m. on Sunday, August 27 at the FivePoint Amphitheatre.
