Two of the most successful and controversial rap acts of the genre are making their way to the Osage Million Dollar Elm Casino Event Center, 951 West 36th Street in Tulsa, OK.
Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube, two rappers who helped shape the West Coast style and have sold millions of albums grace the stage in a show that is not to be missed. The "How The West Was One Tour" stops in Tulsa Wednesday, July 28.
Snoop Dogg, who burst upon the scene as a featured guest on Dr. Dre’s monster album The Chronic and hasn’t look back since. Snoop’s debut album DoggyStyle released in 1993 went quadruple platinum thanks to the hits "What’s My Name?" and "Gin & Juice." In addition to music, Snoop Dogg has starred in motion pictures and hosted several television shows. He keeps himself busy by making new music, cameos in music videos and by coaching a youth football league and a high school football team. Never one to shy away from the spotlight he has had his brushes with the law as a result but still remains a true constant in hip-hop.
Ice Cube is responsible for one-fifth of the gangsta rap group N.W.A. at one time known as "The World’s Most Dangerous Group." He left the group in 1989 and has had very successful career in music and film.
Cube’s music has slowed considerably with more of an emphasis on his acting, but his still remains a top player in the gangsta/hip-hop game. His AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted album in 1990 was an instant hit and helped to catapult hip-hop into the stratosphere, but was met with controversy and called misogynistic and racist. That same year he co-starred in the inner city drama "Boyz n the Hood" as Doughboy. In addition to these accomplishments, he released the EP Kill at Will which became the first hip-hop EP to reach Gold and Platinum status.
His film work includes the hit films: The Friday series, Anaconda, Are We There Yet?, Are We Done Yet?, Three Kings and the Barbershop movies to name a few. Chances are you have seen him and have laughed with him.
Both of these heavyweights of rap are sure to be bringing their A game. You will not want to miss this show.
