Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa lead a crowd of Zen in their latest tour stop, set to reach Red Rocks Amphitheatre this April. The rappers will be joined by YG, Smoke DZA, and other guests yet to be announced.
The concert, marketed as “Snoop's Wellness Retreat,” will hit Red Rocks on April 20 starting at 6pm. Fans of the music artists are welcomed to celebrate the holidays along the mountainside. YG is scheduled to help the audience “turn up Zen,” and Smoke DZA will partake in a “medication meditation,” before Snoop and Wiz themselves take the stage as “recreational gurus.”
Snoop's career has been ongoing since 1992, when he collaborated with Dr. Dre on solo album The Chronic. His music has evolved over the years, and in 2012, he converted to the Rastafari movement and changed his moniker from 'Snoop Dogg' to 'Snoop Lion.' The first album released under this transformation is Reincarnated, a reggae-style that also inspired a documentary film of the same name. The documentary highlight Snoop's experiences while in Jamaica, and the cultural exploration that led to his shift to 'Snoop Lion.' Reports say that Snoop is currently working on the final album he plans to release under the name of 'Snoop Dogg.'
The “Wellness Retreat” at Red Rocks will cover tracks from Reincarnated, along with songs from his reggae single La La La.
