Rap Icon Visits Austin
Legendary rapper, record producer and actor, Snoop Dogg, performed to a sold- out house on the outdoor stage at Stubb’s BBQ in Austin, Tx on June 7, 2012. The hip-hop icon, currently wrapping up the United States leg of his spring tour, released his 11th studio album, “Doggumentary,” in March 2011. In February 2012, Snoop announced the name of his upcoming 12th album and documentary to be “Reincarnated.” Snoop Dogg, who became the face of “gangsta rap” in the 1990’s, has sold more than 12 million records in the US and more than 30 million albums world wide during his prolific career.
Opening on the night for Snoop Dogg was local artist, and emerging rap star in his own right, Phranchyze.
