Snoop Dogg's West Fest at Fillmore SF

Diggity Daz out of the motherf$$kin cut once mo'
So grab a seat and grab your gin and juice and check out the flow"

Damn, this shit took me way back to 11th grade cruisin' around Philly wit "
Tha Dogg Pound." This was truly a memorable Sunday evening in San Francisco at the famous Fillmore. Snoop Dogg rolled in without his band and ran wit his DJ and a host of West Coast all-stars including Tha Dogg Pound, Western Union, Mistah F.A.B, Warzone and special guests Warren G. and Too Short!!! This was all an effort to have some fun with old friends and introduce some new ones. Snoop was also promoting his latest album Ego Trippin', which hit stores May 11, 2008.

With his pimp cup microphone cradle, Snoop bounced on the scene with an opening rendition of blah blah blah and followed with classic Doggystyle hits like Tha Shiznit, Gin & Juice, Lodi Dodi, Ain't No Fun. One early highlight happened as Snoop made one of several Dr. Dre honors before bustin' out my favorite shit "Deep Cover" with Daz & Kurupt on stage.

The show progressed from early Doggystyle and Dre recordings to his Death Row days with a tribute to 2Pac. The packed Fillmore crowd was covered in Chronic smoke by the time Warren G. hit the stage performing his classic "Regulate" track. The show ended with Oakland's OG Too Short movin' the crowd to "Blow the Whistle".
