Snoop Dogg to headline Jersey City's July 4th extravaganza

One of rap's biggest and brightest stars is spending his Fourth of July in Jersey City.

Mayor Steve Fulop announced today that Snoop Dogg will headline the city's fifth annual July 4th festival on the Hudson River waterfront next month. The all-day outdoor celebration at Exchange Place will feature food, beer gardens, music and entertainment, a fireworks spectacle presented by Grucci, and of course, a performance by the world-renown rapper.

For nearly three decades, the West Coast lyricist has been among the most popular rappers -- and personalities -- in the music industry. Snoop Dogg, 46, whose legal name is Calvin Broadus has sold 35 million records worldwide since album debut in 1993.

"I think the Jersey City side of Hudson River is going to be the place that people want to be for the 4th of July this year. Period," Fulop said in a statement. "Between Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, Grucci, and Snoop, we are raising the bar."

The celebration drew 100,000 attendees a year ago when Jersey City's own, Kool & the Gang, headlined the festival. However, the city expects some 200,000 people to attend this year's festival, which kicks off at noon and is free to the public.  Read more
