Snoop Dogg Rolls Into Rothbury on Tricycle for Crowd-Pleasing Set

July 4, 2008 10:30 PM ET

"It's 4:20. It's time to smoke," hollered Snoop Dogg just three songs into his afternoon set, pausing to take a puff from an overstuffed blunt. Never mind that it was actually 4:32. The lanky MC, who took the stage riding a tricked-out three-wheel bicycle, delivered a crowd-pleasing set, touching on songs both new ("Sensual Seduction") and old ("Gin and Juice"). Dressed in an out-sized white T-shirt, the affable rapper tempered his Don "Magic" Juan audacity with just enough of Deputy Dog's "awe shucks" demeanor. After all, there aren't many people who can tell a crowd of women they want to "put it inside you," and sound disarmingly charming doing so.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
