2 Days until the Roots Picnic ’14: Snoog Dogg

Snoop Dogg has been in the game for over 20 years. He’s an O.G. in the rap game and probably the only rapper to continuously reinvent himself while staying true to good ol’ Snoop Dogg. We’ve seen Snoop Dogg at clubs, on Girls Gone Wild, at sold at concert, but we haven’t seen him perform on stage in Philly with the Roots band backing him up, tuning into 20 years of classic jams.

And I just found out that Snoop Dogg is also a fan of Game of Thrones! Watch Snoop Dogg recap the last episode with Seth Rogen on his YouTube series. We all know what Snoop is doing after the picnic on Sunday at 10pm EST.

The Roots Picnic is less than a month away. In preparation, I plan to do my homework and learn as much about every artist performing on that bill. For the next 2 days, everyday will be a mini celebration leading up until the grand finale on May 31st at Penn’s Landing, the 7th annual Roots Picnic. Click here for tickets and for more info.

HGR Compound Classic Bronx, NYC: Recap

Wednesday March 5, 2014 – Bronx, NY

The Bronx, NYC was home for a Heineken Green Room two-part night of music and party with big-name DJ’s and music industry faces co-mingling with select HGR members. To begin the night,  The Compound opened the doors to its decorative and street dapper Bronx creative space “The Compound” for a meet and greet party, hosted by creative connector Set Free and DJ’d Ambush and Young Guru.

After this pre-party wrapped up, attendees joined a larger crowd of HGR members just down the street at the neighborhood hot-spot “Bruckner Bar & Grill” that featured the headlining set of DJ Enuff’s (NYC HOT 97 FM).
