Chicago Shuts Down Snoop Dogg @ Riot Fest 2015

While backstage tonight at Riot Fest 2015 in Chicago with West coast hip-hop stars Cypress Hill, just after the boys played a phenomenal set as the last bit of weekend sun was setting, Snoop Dogg took the main stage front and center a little after 8PM, running behind schedule by more than 20 minutes.

Snoop publicly complained to the crowd after his third song that the Riot Fest production crew was treating him less than favorable, and asked that they not tamper with the sound while he performed. The show was then completely shut down after a purposeful power outage forcing Snoop to usher himself, his band and his dancers off the stage.

I was no more than 30 feet away on that same stage when the drama unfolded.
