Snoop was recently invited to perform during the Kennedy Center Honors to help celebrate the career of the legendary Herbie Hancock. Hancock’s music has played an important role in Hip-Hop, having been sampled by artists like Mobb Deep, N.W.A., 2Pac, Kool G. Rap, Slum Village and countless others. One of the biggest songs was Us3’s Cantaloop. Snoop rocked a bit of that song as well as his own material over a rendition of Cantaloupe Island, from which Cantaloop was sampled. Several luminaries, including the Obamas and Hancock, himself, were feeling it. Check out the video.
