In addition to his prodigious talents as a rapper, actor, hip-hop impressario, author, producer, Hot Pocket video-maker, youth football coach, Rastafari worshipper, and weed smoker (note: the last two are interchanagable), it turns out that nonuple threat Snoop Dogg/Lion is also a right good DJ.
According to Nick Nicholas, the general manager of the Mill Avenue bar, Snoop will roll into ASU country about after finishing up at the fair and is scheduled to start spinning at 11 p.m. A $10 cover will be charged for guys while girls pay $5. (A "fast pass" option to bypass the line outside is $20.)
As for how long Mr. Broadus will spin, that's up to him.
"That's kind of up in the air," Nicholas says. "It's almost something that he's going to decide. I was told at least an hour. I assume it's going to be some of his stuff, some hip-hop, some reggae probably."
UPDATE: See photos from Snoop Dogg's DJ set via our slideshow of the night.
Tonight's Firehouse session isn't the only time that Snoop Dogg has worked the knobs and wheels. As per the above YouTube clip, he DJ'd alongside Busta Rhymes in Amsterdam (natch) in 2011...and did it while smoking a fairly sizable blunt.
Despite Arizona's medical marijuana laws, we're guessing he probably won't be lighting up inside the Firehouse. Then again, since he's effing Snoop Dogg, the bar's staff might look the other way.
