Snoop Dogg at the AZ State Fair Oct 29, 2010

Snoop "dropped an ounce to this while we mother fuckers bounced to this." Haven't been to the State fair in the longest. It was my old N.A.U room mates and I. Glad to see the price for a small beer went down to only $36. Snoop can still put on a pretty good show, has a kickin' live drummer and bass player and the Dj did his best Dr. Dre impersonation. It was like 92' all over again except most of us "old schoolers" have kids now so he self-edited some of the lyrics. On Bitches Ain't Shit he said they wouldn't let him sing it so he had the crowd do it. Snoop did a great cover of House of Pain's Jump Around and since we were three or four beers in we did indeed jump around for the occasion. Supposedly he wasn't allowed to do Gin And Juice either so we all belted out the best parts of that slice too: "rollin' down the street smokin' endo & sippin' on gin and juice/ with our minds on our money and our money on our minds."
Only thing missing was some heavy guitar because the drums and bass were dropping it like it was hot, lol! Surprising number of badly aged old schoolers there. Can't be too uppity about that though, what with the touch of grey in my own my own mug. But I'd say we were the best looking old schoolers there, ha! Snoop was wearing a Coyotes Jersey, looked like he put some muscle on and was definitely the coolest of his beloved old schoolers. He asked the crowd how many of us had been fans for more than 15 years and that got the loudest applause. He also asked how many had been fans for 5 and 10 years respectively. There were probably all in all 2000 plus people there by the end of the show.
He and Dr. Dre was all that could be heard - day and night - in the dorms of Northern Arizona U - in the fall/winter semester of 93'. That and Cypress Hill. If you lived in the Greek community it was all Stone Temple Pilots and Pearl Jam. We felt awfully nostalgic. Actually, the music arrangement in our room was Snoop and Dre by day and The Flaming Lips and/or Beck by night. Weekends it was all especially Bob Marley and Pink Floyd - of course - even in the Greek communities - where the little pledge brothers carved out wooden bongs out of blocks of pine wood for their big brothers. Snoop said he'd be back next year and we probably will be too - God willing - "if the creek don't rise and the Russians don't drop the bomb." - as the old saying goes. Anyway , "Bow wow wow yippie yo yippie yay Snoop Dogg was in the motherfuckin' house!" Good times!!
