|February 25, 2011 marked one of the most-anticipated concerts of the
year at the WVU Coliseum. Legendary rapper Snoop Dogg, the embodiment of
'90s gangsta rap, teamed up with Pittsburgh native Wiz Khalifa, MTV's Hottest
Breakthrough MC of 2010, in their first joint public performance.
The concert sold out weeks in advance and more than 10,000 fans packed the Coliseum to hear Wiz perform his fan-favorites, including "The Thrill," "Still Blazin"' and "Black and Yellow," along with his debut single "Say Yeah."
While Wiz's set was a definite crowd-pleaser, fans overwhelming agreed that Snoop ruled the night with his signature drawl and ultra-smooth, laid-back rhyming delivery. A protégé of the legendary Dr. Dre, Snoop performed all his classics records: "Gin & Juice," "What's My Name," "Next Episode" and "Nothing But a G Thang." He invited ladies from the floor to the stage to dance along to his new single at the time, "Wet," and later payed tribute to Biggie Smalls with "Hypnotize" and Tupac Shakur with "Hail Mary."
Morgantown native and 19-year-old WVU student Huey Mack opened the concert and warmed up the crowd with songs from the mixtape he had just released, "Bright Lights & Long Nights." Fans sang along to his single "Popular," which was heavily played on local radio station WVAQ in 2011.
