Snoop Dogg: Ambassador Against Global Warming

By July 7, 2007Global Warming

Snoop Dogg just got off the stage at “Live Earth” Hamburg, the half-filled HSH Nordbank Arena. If cursing is a persuasive argument against man-made global warming, then Snoop has swayed millions.

Mr. Gore, aren’t you glad to be associated with this convicted felon’s gang-banging performance of “Drop It Like It’s Hot”, to have given him a platform like never before?

I’m a Bad Boy, wit a lotta ho’s
Drive my own cars, and wear my own clothes
I hang out tough, I’m a real Bo$$
Big Snoop Dogg, yeah he’s so sharp
On the TV screen and in the magazines
If you play me close, you’re on a red beam
Oh you got a gun so you wanna pop back?
AK47 now n*****, stop that!
C mid shoes, now I’m on the move
You’re family’s crying, now you on the news
They can’t find you, and now they miss you
Must I remind you I’m only here to twist you
Pistol whip you, dip you then flip you
Then dance to this m************ music we crip to
Subscribe n*****, get yo issue
Baby come close, let me see how you get loose!

And that’s the positive, life-affirming part. For the full message of social activism spread by Snoop to the Germans, click here. Severe language warning.

Internet broadcast of Hamburg show here. Weather report: Cool and damp.

UPDATE (9:35 a.m.): It’s raining. And Mia’s on stage, singing, Dance of the Molecule.

Mein Herz tanzt
Und jedes Molekül bewegt sich

Now that’s the Euro-Pop Experience we need to fight global warming! (Oh, and now she’s put on angel wings!)

UPDATE (4:45 p.m.):

Early afternoon Latino-Star Shakira heated up the stage, opening up the only German “Live Earth” concert for fans in Hamburg with hot rhythms. Only a few thousand fans gathered before the stage as rain fell steadily. But, by evening as the rain eased and the sun occasionally broke through, the stands filled. U.S. rapper Snoop Dogg and Enrique Iglesias excited the about 30,000 fans, as did Grand Prix participant Roger Cicero and Silbermond. More than 20 artists are on the program for the 11-hour concert, including Yusuf alias Cat Stevens and the band, Juli. Despite the numerous international stars and top German musicians, the organizers could only sell about two-thirds of the 45,000 tickets.

Am frühen Nachmittag heizte Latino-Star Shakira zur Eröffnung des einzigen deutschen «Live Earth»-Konzerts den Fans in Hamburg mit heißen Rhythmen ein. Bei strömendem Regen versammelten sich zunächst jedoch nur einige tausend Zuschauer vor der Bühne. Doch zum Abend hin, als der Regen nachließ und sich auch mal die Sonne zeigte, füllten sich die Ränge stärker. Der US-Rapper Snoop Dogg und Enrique Iglesias begeisterten die rund 30 000 Fans ebenso wie Grand-Prix- Teilnehmer Roger Cicero und Silbermond. Für das rund elf Stunden dauernde Konzert standen mehr als 20 Künstler auf dem Programm, darunter auch Yusuf alias Cat Stevens und die Band Juli. Trotz der zahlreichen internationalen Stars und zahlreicher deutscher Top- Musiker konnten die Veranstalter nur rund zwei Drittel der 45 000 Tickets verkaufen.
