Dre + Snoop Celebrate 30th Anniversary With Orchestra Gigs

In honor of the the 30th anniversary of ‘Doggystyle,’ Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre will perform two orchestral shows.

Come June 27 and 28, the Los Angeles Philharmonic will be playing with the iconic West Coast rappers during ‘Snoop Dogg Friends: 30th Anniversary of Doggystyle’ at the legendary Hollywood Bowl.

Backed by the ReCollective Orchestra led by Derrick Hodge the pair of performances are produced by Dre (born Andre Romelle Young,) the legendary producer behind the record.

Released on November 23 of 1993, the record followed Snoop’s contributions to ‘The Chronic’ in Dre’s debut solo album in 1992.

In related news, Snoop (born Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr.) has announced plans to produce a biopic about his own life in conjunction with Universal Pictures, director Allen Hughes and writer Joe Robert Cole to make the upcoming film.

In a statement about the biopic Snoop said “I waited a long time to put this project together because I wanted to choose the right director, the perfect writer, and the greatest movie company I could partner with that could understand the legacy that I’m trying to portray on screen, and the memory I’m trying to leave behind.” “It was the perfect marriage. It was holy matrimony, not holy macaroni.”

Donna Langley, the chairwoman of Universal, added “Snoop Dogg’s life and legacy make him one of the most exciting and influential icons in popular culture.” “We met with Snoop shortly after he acquired Death Row Records and had the opportunity to hear his story in his own words. We are humbled to be able to create the lasting document of this singular artist.”
