*Last night (05-11-15), Snoop Dogg proved that even after 13 solo albums, he truly is a musical chameleon.
Snoop performed new tracks such as “Peaches N Cream” and “California Roll” from his funk inspired new album BUSH, released today (05-12-15).
Hosted by Big Boy of L.A.’s hip hop and R&B station Real 92.3, the event included an intimate Q&A with album collaborator Pharrell Williams.
