Snoop Dogg showed up to Spike Lee’s 2nd Annual ‘Brooklyn Loves Michael Jackson’ Birthday Celebration in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park to pay tribute to Michael on what would have been his 52nd birthday.
Snoop performed his hits remixed with Michael’s classics and was given a sparkly glove, which he plans to take back to California with him. During the tribute, he also spoke of his admiration for Michael saying; “His music, his spirit represented love and peace around the whole world and it influenced me and what I do, so for me to come through, it’s just showing love and respect and paying homage to a great artist who meant so much to music in general and the people.”
Prior to the event taking place, performer Fabolous discussed Brooklyn’s appreciation for Michael’s legacy. “Brooklyn is just one of the many places across the world who lived Mike’s music,” he said.
DJ Spinna played for five hours with Spike Lee and other famous Brooklynites cutting in like Ed Lover and Tracy Morgan introducing crowd karaoke to ‘Black or White,’ ‘The Way You Make You Feel,’ and ‘Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin.’
