As part of the highlights of the Hillary Clinton Campaign, the Democratic Party will host its convention party later this month.
Rap superstar and outspoken marijuana aficionado, Snoop Dogg, will be performing at the concert in support of Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Snoop Dogg will headline the convention unity party in Philadelphia on July 28, a day after Clinton is expected to accept the presidential nomination.

The show will take place at the Electric Factory, a concert venue in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with a capacity of up to 3,000 in a converted electric factory.
Snoop Dogg, who has sold more than 35 million albums in his career, started his musical career in Southern California’s gangsta rap scene. He has since branched out into more mellow sounds including pop and reggae.
His latest album, “Coolaid,” came out on Friday, swaying back to his favorite theme — his love for smoking marijuana.
Snoop Dogg To Perform In Support Of Hillary Clinton
While not known for his political statements, Snoop had in 2012 made a Facebook posting favorable to Republican candidate Ron Paul due to the politician’s favorable stance on marijuana.
Snoop had in 2015 publicly expressed his support for Clinton on a live tv show, Watch What Happens Live!.
“I’ll say that I would love to see a woman in office because I feel like we’re at that stage in life where we need a perspective other than the male’s train of thought.
“And just to have a woman speaking from a global perspective as far as representing America, I’d love to see that.
“So I’ll be voting Ms. Clinton.”
Reports say President Obama personally selected Snoop Dogg to perform at the Democratic Party’s Unity Convention Party.
Clinton on her campaign website has promised to respect US states that have legalized or decriminalized marijuana.
She also promised to redirect federal efforts away from prosecuting weed possession. She noted that African Americans are disproportionately targeted with the legislation.
Clinton’s rival, Donald Trump has been more open on marijuana than much of his Republican Party, saying last year that the issue should be left to states.
Trump has had a patchy record with prominent musicians, with artists from R.E.M. to The Rolling Stones to Adele asking the billionaire presidential hopeful to stop playing their songs at his rallies.
