Puff Puff Pass Tour @ Palace Theatre
Snoop Dogg, the iconic Long Beach, California rapper brought the Puff Puff Pass Tour to Louisville and he was not alone. On the jaunt were pioneering Cleveland rap crew Bone Thugs-N- Harmony, Twista, longtime collaborator Warren G, Compton icon DJ Quik and West Coast rap duo, Tha Dogg Pound.
The tour, is a follow up to Snoop’s iconic “Puff Puff Pass Tour” in 2001 and 2004’s Puff Puff Pass tour documentary.
Mentored by the late Eazy-E, Bone thugs-n-harmony put Cleveland, Ohio on the rap map in the mid-1990s. The music of Krayzie Bone, Layzie Bone, Bizzy Bone, Wish Bone, and Flesh-N-Bone featured a groundbreaking blend of rapping and singing that stands among the most distinctive and innovative in rap history.
With his landmark Regulate… G-Funk Era LP, Warren G helped usher in G-Fun, a sonic revolution that redirected the sound of rap with its laid-back vibe and equally chill vocal style.
DJ Quik stands as rap’s preeminent rapper-producer, while Tha Dogg Pound (Kurupt and Daz) is one of the best rap duos of all time and made their debut alongside Snoop Dogg on Dr. Dre’s The Chronic LP (1992) and Snoop’s classic first album, Doggystyle (1993).
Snoop also brought along Pomona City Movement and LBC Movement, as show openers. Both are two of Snoop Dogg’s newest protégés.
