4-1-19: The Buffalo Chip released an official looking email this morning, announcing that well known hip hop rapper, Snoop Dog would be making his motorcycle rally debut at this years Sturgis Rally on the Wolfman Jack stage Wednesday, August 6th.
The release read, "Crank the bass and raise your pimp cup for a party unlike any that’s come to the Sturgis Buffalo Chip before. One of the most acclaimed and legendary rappers of all time, the Doggfather himself, Snoop D-o-double-g, Snoop Dogg will make his motorcycle rally debut at the Best Party Anywhere! He’s a visionary, a trailblazer and a certified party liaison with a 25-year-long pedigree of certified dance floor-rockin’, chart-topping hits. He’s never done things any other way than his own. And while he’s about done it all, he’s never seen anything quite like the Chip."
Despite the website appearing to confirm the booking, with the timing of the release, and we can't help but wonder if this is perhaps a well thought out April Fools Joke by Woody and the folks at the Chip.
Not that Snoop Dog isn't appreciated for his contributions to the music world, he's just not our first thought, (or even our hundredth) when it comes to entertainment at the largest biker rally in the world.
UPDATE: It's been confirmed by the Chip! Snoop Dogg will be performing Wednesday August 6th.
