Late Night in the Phog and Snoop Dogg, Oct. 4

Stripper poles, money guns, and Snoop. In what was by far, the most memorable Late Night in the Phog ever (and probably forever), Snoop Dogg put on a show after the conclusion of the Kansas basketball scrimmage.

Snoop Dogg’s show featured his songs totally unfiltered, multiple women dancing on poles, a money gun, and a dog mascot smoking marijuana. It was an incredible sight to see, regardless of how it made you feel.

The performance caused a ridiculous amount of fallout. Athletic Director Jeff Long issued this statement:

"“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. 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.”"

In response, Snoop Dogg had a simple answer: “When you pay for Snoop Dogg, you gonna get Snoop Dogg” (via ESPN). Apparently, the two parties were on different pages before the show began.

Keep in mind that this show came shortly after Kansas basketball received its notice of allegations from the NCAA, so now that whole “Lack of Institutional Control” charge seems to have been well-founded.

With the start of the season right around the corner, Kansas basketball couldn’t get much more publicity if they tried. Between the NCAA allegations, the Snoop Dogg concert, and a top-three ranking, this team was a media-monster.
