The Doggfather's spent the last year or so going through his own unique version of a midlife crisis. He's changed his stage name four times: to Snoop Lion for a patchy dancehall album, to DJ Snoopadelic for a decent instrumental chill-out album, and then to Snoopzilla for a pretty cool stab at electro-funk with Dâm-Funk.
Now Calvin Broadus is Snoop Dogg again – although it's rumoured that he's working on his last album under that name – and he'll be showcasing new material tonight as he returns to Brixton. Rap? Reggae? Funk? Probably all of the above and more besides. The only thing you can guarantee is that it'll be smoother than Sun-Pat.
