Thursday night at TAO Nightclub, Snoop Dogg kicked off the Fourth of July holiday weekend with the third installment of his 1920’s-themed DJ and performance residency, The Snoopadelic Cabaret. Upon arriving, the hip-hop legend made a stop to pose with several eager fans before heading up to the DJ booth for a DJ Snoopadelic set. As he treated partygoers to a roster of club anthems, a wide array of decade-themed performance acts took the stage above him. Snoop Dogg then headed up to center stage for a performance of his biggest hits, including “The Next Episode,” “Nuthin’ But a G Thang,” “Gin and Juice” and “Who Am I (What’s My Name).” The entertainment icon wished the packed house a happy Fourth of July before leading into “Drop It Like It’s Hot.” After Snoop closed out his performance, he returned back to the DJ decks for another set that kept the party going into the early morning hours.
