Snoop Dogg performed an R-Rated show for the University of Kansas basketball party, prompting its athletics director to issue a statement of apology.


The University of Kansas commemorated basketball preseason through a "Late Night in the Phog" event, where they invited Snoop Dogg to perform a few songs for students, athletes, fans, teachers, and parents.


Snoop's Controversial Performance

While Kansas Jayhawks athletic director Jeff Long revealed that he requested the rapper's management to keep the performance clean, they were surprised to see the hip-hop artist backed by dancers who danced on poles.

Dressed in a blue jersey number 20 Kansas jersey, Snoop belted out tunes to a delighted crowd, as he was backed by dancers twirling on poles. Towards the end of the show, he also shot a money gun full of fake $100 bills with his face on them.


Athletics Director Jeff Long's Statement

Releasing a statement to the media about the viral performance, Jeff Long apologized to their fans who were caught by surprise.

"We apologize for the Snoop Dogg performance at Late Night. We made it clear to the entertainers' managers that we expected a clean version of the show and took additional steps to communicate to our fans, including moving the artist to the final act of the evening, to ensure that no basketball activities would be missed if anyone did not want to stay for his show."


A Surprising Turn of Events

While Snoop's performance had athletes and fans screaming and asking for autographs, school officials like Long were shocked by the type of performance he brought to the university.

"I take full responsibility for not thoroughly vetting all the details of the performance and offer my personal apology to those who were offended. We strive to create a family atmosphere at Kansas and fell short of that this evening."

Snoop's Own Personal Tragedy

Amid the controversial performance, Snoop Dogg and his family have been mourning the loss of a loved one, particularly the rapper's grandson, Kai Love, who passed away at just 10 days old.

Kai is the third child of Corde Broadus, and it was Corde himself who broke the news about his son's death on social media, just ten days after he was born.

A Message of Trust

While Snoop never addressed his loss directly, he shared a video that reminds people to trust in God regardless of how difficult their situations might be.

"If you're facing something you don't understand: choose to trust God. Remember all He has done for you. Hi ways are higher than ours. He is always good."

Although Kai left his family just ten days after he was born, he will always be remembered as a little man who brought so much love and positivity to the world. While the family's loss is painful, they've been trying to take it as positively as they can.
