The Black Keys, Radiohead, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg to headline Coachella fest


The Black Keys and Radiohead, plus a double bill of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg lead the lineup for this spring’s annual Coachella Music and Arts festival in Indio, Calif. The event spans two weekends this year, April 13-15 and April 20-22. In addition to the headliners, dozens of buzzworthy bands, both new and old, will perform, including Bon Iver, the Arctic Monkeys, M83, Florence + the Machine, and punk icons the Buzzcocks. The full lineup was posted on the festival’s Facebook page today.

The festival will run two identical weekends this year for the first time ever, with all of the acts signed on to perform both weekends. Rumors ranging about who would play the festival had been running rampant around the Web practically since last year’s festival ended.

Who are you most excited to see at Coachella?

Snoop Dogg launches Celebrity Charity Week on 'The Price Is Right,' knows the cost of bird seed: Watch it here


If you were home yesterday nursing an epic New Year’s Eve hangover with Vitamin Water and gravy-covered sandwiches, you may have caught one of the more surreal moments in the history of The Price Is Right—a visit from Snoop Dogg.

After busting out a Price Is Right-themed freestyle, the rapper, there to launch the show’s special celebrity-charity week, assisted a handful of contestants in an effort to raise matching funds for his Snoop Football League, which brings organized pigskin to at-risk inner city youth.

He managed to coach one contestant to a healthy victory in Plinko, and in the show’s biggest victory, assisted a woman in scoring a 1965 Lincoln convertible. Watch Snoop show off his deep knowledge of the price of ranch dressing below: READ FULL STORY

Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa are 'Young, Wild & Free' on new single: Hear it here!

Snoop Dogg has been always been very public about his adoration for a certain recreational herb.

Fellow rapper and Pittsburgh native Wiz Khalifa shares the same affinity for said substance, which is why those two have made for logical bedfellows on wax; in fact, their tag-team effort on “The Weed Iz Mine” is one of the great underrated hip-hop tracks of 2011.

The smoke-friendly pair have dropped their latest collaboration, a summery track called “Young, Wild & Free” that also features Bruno Mars crooning a sweet nostalgic hook.

According to the still screen on the YouTube video delivering the song, “Young, Wild & Free” is the first single from the soundtrack to a forthcoming film called Mac And Devin Go To High School that should be out some time early next year.

Kick back and fire up “Young, Wild & Free” after the jump. READ FULL STORY

'Winning': Sheen's catchphrase spawns a rap collaboration with Snoop Dogg

As The Sheen will tell you, “winning” isn’t just the opposite of losing. It’s a way of life. And a line of t-shirts. And it could be, according to Jimmy Fallon, a fragrance. Well, Sheen’s “winning” dictum has taken one more step from being a mere internet meme to being added to the OED as hashtagged slang. His Sheenness has collaborated with none other than Snoop Dogg to drop a #winning-inspired rap, whose download proceeds will apparently be donated to assist those affected by last month’s tornadoes in the South. Take a listen to the NSFW track below:


Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson team up for smokey 'Superman' video


Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson have a lot in common: They’re both legends in their respective genres. They each make dubious choices when it comes to collaborators. Both are braid enthusiasts. And both love country music.

Of course, they are also both advocates of a certain herbal substance that will grab a handful of headlines today. Appropriately, Snoop just dropped a new video for “Superman,” which features a guest spot from Nelson. Check it out after the jump.


Charlie Sheen and Snoop Dogg making warlock 'Sheenius' music? Sheen's Twitter says yes

Charlie Sheen’s My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Death is Not an Option Tour begins in a few days, and no one has a clue what’s in store for those in attendance.

But he may have given us a hint via Twitter over the weekend. E! spotted a twitpic that shows him, rapper Snoop Dogg, and the tour’s music director Robert Patterson (also the former guitarist for Korn) working on some tunes.

“Warlock meets his makers-music makers that is @SnoopDogg @robpatterson666,” Sheen captions. “Get ready to rock the Sheenius within!” Whoa!


Snoop Dogg, Warren G, and many more remember late friend Nate Dogg at California funeral

Late hip-hop crooner Nate Dogg was laid to rest Saturday in his Long Beach, California hometown. MTV reports that thousands of fans and family members attended the funeral service at Long Beach Cruise Terminal. Among them were music peers Dr. Dre, Game, DJ Quik, Mack-10, WC, DJ Pooh, and fellow 213 group members Snoop Dogg and Warren G.

Snoop recalled how their friendship began 25 years ago. “1986, Poly High School, that’s where we connected for the first time,” Snoop said. “We didn’t know each other, but the music connected us. We built a brotherhood.”


Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg to star in stoner flick High School

The pairing of new school rhymer Wiz Khalifa and rap icon Snoop Dogg is a match made in chronic heaven.

The two avid weed puffers are taking their friendship further than just music and creating a movie called, fittingly, High School. The stoner comedy will likely be released sooner than later, Khalifa confirmed to Rolling Stone.

“It should be coming out pretty soon. It’s about pot, of course,” he said. “But it’s about me [sic] and his relationship. A spin-off of us being cool in the industry, smoking a lot of weed, and being around a lot of weed. We’re going to try to have fun with it and also try to enlighten people at the same time, not just get everybody high.”


Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg steam up the club in 'Kush' video: Watch here

Dr-Dre-KushOkay, so now I’m actually starting to believe Dr. Dre‘s Detox is coming soon. “Kush,” the album’s lead single leaked online last month and positive feedback demanded they run with it. Acting fast, the video was released this morning. The legendary California producer teams up with singer Akon and frequent collaborator Snoop Dogg here. In the clip Dre and Snoop hit the club to spark up some fun while Akon makes it rain in a private jet cruising over the city. Visually, it’s an interesting video. The trio are the only ones moving in the majority of it. Motionless party-goers are seen enjoying various facets of after hours fun, be it exhaling puffs of smoke, knocking back a drink, or dancing. Flight attendants are frozen, as is the cash Akon tosses up on his plane.

The camera work is not untraveled territory, though. T-Pain’s recent “Rap Song” features the style. As does Usher’s “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love” with slow motion and rewinding at times. But Dre’s has a Cali-cool vibe that’s all its own.

Check out the video after the jump and let us know what you think. But beware: the language is NSFW.


Snoop Dogg lights up 'smokin' song for Prince William's bachelor party

Though it’s been rumored, we’ve got no clue if Prince William of Wales has invited hip-hop royalty to his upcoming spring wedding to Kate Middleton. But California king Snoop Dogg already has a track that he says is tailor made for the king-to-be’s bachelor party. In a press release Snoop says the second single from his forthcoming Doggumentary Music, “Wet,” is “the perfect anthem for Prince William or any playa to get the club smokin’.” Fittingly, the song will make its debut at 4:20 pm PST today on his website.

Prince William’s known to a be huge fan of hip-hop titans like Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, and Diddy–all of whom would seemingly be “safer” picks as invitees to such a regal event. But Snoop sure does up the cool factor several notches. What do you think of Snoop’s unencouraged act of assistance? Will you be checking in later to find out what he laced William with? Spark up some dialogue in the comments.
