Sergio's Music Intervention: Snoop Dogg Please Be Gangsta Again (2010)
In honor of tonight's San Francisco concert by Snoop Dogg
(aka Snoop Lion
), in which he'll be "performing his classic smash hits
," via music videos this Amoelbog celebrates the career highs (pun intended) of the artist formerly known as Snoop Doggy Dogg
while briefly referencing some of the career
lows of the artist born Calvin Broadus
via the above video. I think it can be said that most of us hold an unconditional love for Snoop Dogg. Hence why the rapper who has sold over 30 million albums to date is still popular and headlining big venues like the Regency Ballroom
in SF tonight and can charge $72 for a ticket to get in, and why we as longtime fans can somehow forgive him for his numerous questionable rap career deviations. These numerous career sidesteps by the notorious weed smoking gangsta rapper from the LBC are entertainingly addressed in the above hilarious video clip by Sergio Cilli
in one of his famed Music Intervention
rants on the now defunct Current TV.
The piece originally aired back in 2010 around the time Snoop teamed up with Katy Perry
for her mega pop hit "California Gurls" but is still funny because it is so true!
