Snoop Dogg, known to his friends as Calvin Broadus Jr. (well, they call him Snoop too actually), visited Jiffy Lube Live to mark the 25th anniversary of his debut studio album, Doggystyle. Chris Castillo of Parklife DC went along to take some pictures!
On Sept. 27, Snoop opened and closed his show with raps from Doggystyle with “Tha Shiznit” and “Who Am I? (What’s My Name?)” respectively.
Snoop spent much of the rest of the night performing covers technically, but songs for which he made an appearance or contribution such as “All I Do Is Win” by DJ Khaled and “Nuthin’ but a G Thang” by Dr. Dre. Warren G also appeared with Snoop to perform songs like “Regulate.”

In 1993, Doggystyle debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and it instantly made Snoop Dogg a household name. The funky flavor of Snoop’s gangsta rap set an often-imitated precedent. At Jiffy Lube Live, folks got to experience the true original.
