Snoop has this to say
"West Coast rap is integral to the story of Hip Hop. The genre started on the East Coast and made its way to California where we put our own swag on it. It’s dope to see the Hip Hop Til Infinity exhibit acknowledging the 50 years of Hip Hop, and to have the spotlight on the 30 years of Doggystyle within the exhibit is something special."
The exhibit will showcase rare and collectible items from prominent figures of the West Coast, such as the late Nipsey Hussle, Delicious Vinyl, and radio station KDAY. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore the Hip Hop Til Infinity shop, featuring an extensive collection of curated records from artists like Snoop Dogg, E-40, DJ Shadow, Nas, Wu-Tang Clan, and De La Soul. Additionally, the exhibition will include sculptures by Concrete Jungle and collections from The Marathon Clothing, Wu-Wear Clothing, and other notable entities.
Snoop Dogg, who embarked on his remarkable journey from Long Beach years ago, is set to venture into new heights by joining NBCUniversal's coverage of the 2024 Olympic Summer Games in Paris.
