Snoop vs. Jay-Z

snooooooooop.jpgTonight, two of hip-hop's most iconic stars -- Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg -- will both be in Baltimore. Snoop is playing Rams Head Live and Jay-Z is playing 1st Mariner Arena.

Side note: These are but half of the A-list shows happening as part of Super Music Tuesday.

In today's paper, I wrote a (hopefully) funny and light-hearted comparison between Snoop and Jay-Z. Read it here. Of course, it looks much better in print, where it's actually a chart. But you can still kinda figure out what's going on if you read it online.

I think both of them are great in their own way. I remember Snoop when he was Snoop Doggy Dogg back at Death Row. And i remember Vol. 2. Again, you forgot "Hard Knock Life".

yeah dats rockin see who the realest [what do you think he said?] in tha building,JIGGA take on tha DOGG

It was delightful to know Baltimore was a Hip HOp meka for 1 day. Both are part of a music that once was not considered a true art form. Embrassed by not just backyard streets. I attended the Snoop show because I have attended Jay-z last appereance here with Mary J. blige. A good night $ HIPHOP an me
