  • March 30-Snoop Dogg Concert Cancelled After Pressure From Authorities

    A previously scheduled concert in Las Vegas, Nevada featuring rapper Snoop Dogg has been cancelled.

    The Wall Street Journal reported that Snoop was scheduled to headline a recent private party held by Molson Coors Brewing at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas.

    However, the rapper's performance was stopped after Harrah's Entertainment, the hotel's parent company, asked Coors to cancel the show in light of pressure from local law-enforcement authorities and Nevada's Gaming Control Board, according to several people close to the situation.

    Sheriff Bill Young of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department recently sent a letter to state gambling regulators urging them to discourage casinos from booking rappers.

    That was followed by a letter from Nevada's State Gaming Control Board which expressed particular concern about "gangster rap."

    The letters came after the deaths of four local rappers last June and the recent death of a police officer who was murdered by an aspiring Las Vegas rapper.

    Less than two weeks after Harrah's received the letter, the company asked Coors executives to remove Snoop from the show.

    People involved told The Wall Street Journal that Snoop would have been paid about $150,000 for the performance. The rapper declined to comment
