Opinions on Snoop Lion performing @SNWMF.....
July 13, 2013 12:54PM
Im not tryin to stir it up, just curious what people think about Snoop performing @ SNWMF. What's your thoughts? Village Stage or Valley Stage? Headliner (he is Snoop)? Me personally wouldn't want to see him there. That's my opinion. What's yours?

Snoop Dogg is dope. Snoop Lion got Snoop Doggs voice but with cliche garbage lyrics.
I'd be embarrasses for the fest if they had Snoop Lion.
Now Eddie Murphy I'd be excited to see perform though winking smiley

I see this going down at ROTR rather than SNWMF...
From the few tunes I've heard, it seems most of the Album consists of Collaborations. Unless the collaborators were along for the ride, I don't see a Snoop Lion solo thing going over so well. Esp if he was doing a strait Reggae show.
Trust me<~ In a couple of years or less this whole Snoop Lion thing will ...





Snoop at SNWMF.= Nevah!

Excuse me but just what do you mean by:" I see this going down at ROTR rather than SNWMF... " In the last 5 years that ROTR was at Benbow there was Never anybody like this and I for sure don't see it this year. Look at the line-up. What's your reasoning? ROTR is produced by the Mateel Community Center, a local community non-profit organization who couldn't afford his asking price even if they ever considered Snoop. I'm sure they would rather spend the money on the youth programs they support.

I don't understand all the hate on these boards for ROTR, I can understand the frustrations with Reggae Rising but even then there was still great music. It seems like a lot of people on here preach love and positive vibes but don't practice it.

I don't know Mamacali, from what I have heard when living up there, Snoop likes Humboldt County, particularly its herbs and spices.

Snoop has only played Humboldt Co once that I'm aware of and that was a long while ago and he played up in Eureka not So Hum. A lot of people love Humboldt and it's herb.

Didn't mean to offend you mamacali. The Mateel hosts all kinds of of shows outside of ROTR... and its not that far fetched to envision Snoop at ROTR IMO.

Juanlove, the two shows you memtion are not being produced by the Mateel. Whoever is producing these shows are just renting the hall for their shows.

Pass. Seriously. This would be a deal breaker for me and my family.

Think of all the real singers, musicians, and roots artists that the festival could bring for the cost of the Snoop Dogg/Lion farce.

Not that it matters, but Snoop has played in Eureka twice in the last 6 years. The most recent time Stephen Marley opened for him

My first reaction was "NO". But I'm not familiar with his music. I do not know any of his hit songs. I've seen him on SNL or Letterman once or twice, but that's it.
It would not stop me from going to SNWMF, because every year there are acts I am not interested in. I would just go to the other stage, dancehall, get some irie food or just take a break. If it helps SNWMF bring in more dollars and new fans for the festival, I'm all for that.
But I would rather the music $$$'s be spent on real Reggae & World Music acts.
I'll stick to my first reaction and say "no". Sorry Snoop. winking smiley

I would be for having Snoop Lion if he would fore-go his performance fee and settle for a free hotel room in Ukiah.

From what I understand, he doesn't really need our ticket money.

No doubt he would bring added revenue to the festival which could be used to bring additional talent to the billing.

For some, I think he might be entertaining as well. That might even include me.

so when snoop goes into his profanity laced catalog, do you think folks will run back to the board and complain?

much like when luciano simply stated his belief in a Creator ?

Well, if he can't perform without excessive profanity and vulgarity then he would not be welcome as far as I'm concerned.

I assume he would do his Snoop Lion performance since this is a reggae festival and not his Snoop Dawg thing, but I might have it all wrong and there is no difference...I'm really not that familiar with his live performances either before or after his reincarnation.

So, yes, I think folks would complain, more like when Brigadier Jerry was thumping the Bible and denigrating gays.
Re: Opinions on Snoop Lion performing @SNWMF.....
July 16, 2013 11:29AM
I dont think he would be the best fit for the festival. I personally think he is tight.. Now, I think his set consists of about 20% snoop lion , and the rest classic doggystyle.
Although he does have a DJ as an element, his band is sick. Super talented young guys that rock out- most of em from compton.. he has some hot chicks dancing as well.

I think a lot of the people might be pleasantly surprised. The former gangster rapper converts to reggae- I say good for him. sure, its a little funny hearing it come from him, but no doubt he has some conscious lyrics. the guy went from "murder was the case" to "no guns allowed" if anything he might influence some young people into thinking guns aren't cool.

people will complain no matter what the lineup is.
Re: Opinions on Snoop Lion performing @SNWMF.....
July 16, 2013 12:08PM
well if he is truly converted he would never perform as snoop dogg again.... besides the song content being innappropriate, he was told by the elders that he is not a dogg and is in fact a lion... so if he really were embracing the spiritual path he claims then he is not that person anymore,,,,, he is now the lion......... but i think we all know what's really going on in this situation..... records gotta sell.

so this is your logic? - he sold more than 30 million albums worldwide as a rapper, or in the genre of hip hop, and then decided to switch to "reggae" to sell more albums? interesting.

not a lion, not a dog... just a human. who at least is now writing songs with a positive message.

some artists probably hate playing their "hits" over and over and over... but they have to... who knows if he likes it or not, but snoop (lion or dog) probably hasn't done a show without playing 'gin and juice' or 'nothin but a g thing' since those songs came out.

"truly converted" - as if its a scientific process. he's a human, an american, from cali. he digs reggae. let a brother live

I WOULDN'T vote or encourage to bring Snoop to SNWMF. He's not on my list, but if for some reason he were to be there, it would not stop me from attending. If that were the case maybe an early show between 1-3 pm. Just not sure what stage to put him on. Maybe the village stage. Keep it small, intimate and avoid any big hype or attention. I think we all know that SNWMF wouldn't bring him. He's not really the type they would bring to the fest.

Yes, because reggae is so much more lucrative and sells so much more than does hip-hop...
