Released in 1993 by the rapper then known as Snoop Doggy Dogg, Doggystyle spawned two top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 and also Snoop’s first as a lead artist courtesy of “What’s My Name?” and “Gin and Juice.” Guests on the album included Nate Dogg, Warren G., Kurupt, Tha Dogg Pound and R&B group The Dramatics.

Produced by Dr. Dre following Snoop Dogg’s own guest contributions to the former’s 1992 classic The Chronic, Doggystyle debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 and remained at No. 1 for three weeks. The later RIAA-certified multiplatinum album initially sold 803,000 copies its premiere week which, at that time, was a first-week record for a debut rap album, according to Luminate. Doggystyle was released by Death Row Records (which Snoop Dogg now owns) and Interscope Records.

Back In February, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association announced the lineup for the summer 2023 season at the Hollywood Bowl, kicking off in June with a concert starring Janet Jackson and Ludacris. The lineup also includes shows by My Morning Jacket, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Maxwell, Sparks, The Beach Boys, Louis Tomlinson, Diana Krall, Maggie Rogers, a tribute to Quincy Jones, and many others.

Additionally, John Williams will share conducting duties with Gustavo Dudamel as they oversee the Philharmonic Orchestra in playing along with classic film clips on July 7-9.
