Rapping superstar Snoop Dogg took to the stage at Studio 54 in MGM Grand for a special performance. The casino floor was abuzz with excitement for the icon’s arrival; Studio 54’s line wrapped out the door as the crowd gathered hoping to catch a glimpse of the Doggfather.
Cheers erupted as a large entourage made its way to the red carpet outside Studio 54. Fans went wild snapping pictures of Snoop Dogg, who arrived looking fly in his signature shades and dripping in ice. Posing on the carpet, Snoop said, “I’m just here [at Studio 54] having a good time; you know to party, to celebrate. I heard [Studio 54] was popping so I’m going to see what it do.”
When asked about future projects, Snoop kept it on the sly, replying, “You know me, I’m spontaneous. I don’t really like to talk about it; I like to be about it. So [if anything] has Snoop Dogg on the project, you know you’re going to get it.”
Snoop D-O Double-G then made his way into the iconic nightclub, where DJ Kid Jay was warming up the crowd for the popping performance. The sexy party-goers went wild as the club went dark and DJ Kid Jay asked, “Are y’all ready for the King of the West Coast? Make some noise!”
“La Da Di Da” blared over the speakers as the rapping icon appeared and launched his performance. Snoop Dogg was loving the Studio 54 crowd and told the DJ to “Gimme some of that old school Snoop Dogg [stuff]” and “Gin and Juice” began.
Working the crowd, Snoop declared, “They told me to do three songs, but I’ve got to do more,” and launched into an impromptu hour-long performance for Studio 54 party-goers! Akon’s “I Wanna Love You” was up next, which the smooth-talker ended by serenading one of the sexy front-row ladies with “You can’t see me but I can see you” as he seductively removed his shades.
Ever the ladies man, Snoop continued his serenade with sexy hits “Drop It Like It’s Hot” and “Sensual Seduction.” Singling out one lucky lady, D-O Double G cooed, “I see you back there baby. There sure are some pretty [ladies] in here tonight. Wow-wee! Baby got goo-goo eyes. Studio 54 make some noise!”
The iconic club was exploding with energy as Snoop’s performance lasted well into the early morning. “This is my first time at Studio 54. Everyone’s lookin’ good and feelin’ good and I’m havin’ a really good time,” Snoop Doggy Dogg hollered at the crowd before wrapping up the show with “Mary Jane.”
Before leaving the stage to celebrate another amazing performance, Snoop yelled, “Studio 54… My name is Snoop. Keep lookin’ fine. Thank y’all. I’ll be up top, ladies come holler.”
DJ Kid Jay took back the turn tables and kept the party going with the appropriately chosen “Dog Catcher” by George Clinton while the Doggfather made his way to his VIP table overseeing the entire party.
