Snoop Dogg will headline a “unity party” on the final night of the Democratic National Convention hosted by the pro-Hillary Clinton Super PAC, Priorities USA Action.
The concert will take place at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia on July 28th, and is being hosted in conjunction with the House Majority PAC and the Senate Majority PAC. The three organizations will also host a reception several days earlier that will feature a performance from Los Lobos, though an exact date and venue have yet to be announced.
The Democratic National Convention will take place in Philadelphia July 25th through 28th. Additional information for the Snoop Dogg and Los Lobos shows, as well as other events being held around the convention, will be announced in the coming days.
Snoop Dogg has long been a supporter of Hillary Clinton, giving the candidate his endorsement on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live in May 2015. “I would love to see a woman in office because I feel like we’re at that stage in life to where we need a perspective other than the male’s train of thought,” the rapper said. “And just to have a woman speaking from a global perspective as far as representing America, I’d love to see that. So I’ll be voting for Mrs. Clinton.”
On July 1st, Snoop Dogg released his new album, Coolaid, his first straight rap album since 2011’s Doggumentary. Over the past five years, the MC has made forays into reggae (Reincarnated), funk (7 Days of Funk, with Dâm-Funk) and, most recently on Bush, Pharrell’s special brand of neo-disco and soul.
