A musical and cultural icon, hip-hop Renaissance man, entrepreneur, and Hollywood'S newest leading man, SNOOP DOGG is quickly becoming a hot commodity in the world of entertainment. His recent, 2008 album, Ego Trippin has been getting solid reviews and radio play. USA Today said, Musically, Trippin' ranks with the rapper's best work; he and his co-producers fold '80s electro-funk into arrangements that feel at once nostalgic and bracingly fresh. His appearance at the Monterey Music Summit will be the first concert of his summertime amphitheater tour.
