We had the cameras rolling BTS, Sunday, at L.A’s leading annual event for the sounds of classic hip-hop, more specifically the golden era of hip hop. Like every year, KDAY’s Krush Groove was highly anticipated by old school/ classic hip-hop fans.
This year’s show featured a collection of artist who are respected and helped mold the sound and history of West Coast hip-hop. Fans made their way to the Forum in Inglewood, to watch performances by a lineup of Long Beach G-funk acts, with headliner Snoop Dogg and Warren G – Tha Dogg Pound, Daz and Kurupt also made it to the stage.
Representing the Bay, OG Too $hort graced the stage to perform some of his many adored classics including Gangstas and Strippas.
Also, in attraction was performances from Inglewood native Mack 10, MC Eiht, Glasses Malone, West Coast Kam, St. Louis rapper Chingy and other West Coast legends.
In a statement announcing the upcoming Forum show, KDAY VP of programming Adrian Scott said, “This year’s Krush Groove concert brings together an important part of L.A.’s musical legacy at one of its most iconic venues. Snoop Dogg, Too $hort, Warren G and Mack 10 are innovators of West Coast hip-hop. KDAY was the first radio station in the city to support West Coast hip-hop and continues to do so.”
Snoop Dogg was also the recipient of KDAY’s second annual Honorz Award in recognition of his outstanding contributions, his music artistry and influence to the hip-hop industry. Last year’s first Honorz honoree was Ice T.
