It's un­known whether or not the statue made it to the home of the 'Drop It Like It's Hot' rap­per fin­ished his set and left the night­club. The show at the Ora night­club comes af­ter the 'Young, Wild & Free' hit­maker wrapped his 'Puff Puff Pass Tour part 2' ear­lier this month, which res­ur­rected the spe­cial run of gigs he played in 15 years ago 2001.

A Snoop-Dre al­bum would be amaz­ing, but a tour even more, be­cause we have leg­endary mu­sic the world has yet to see us per­form glob­ally. I'm pretty sure he wants to do it. He just wants the team in place. Ken­drick La­mar, Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre - that's the dream team for him."
