Rapper, record producer and sometimes actor Snoop Dogg enlivened the Ravens' morning workout at McDaniel College Thursday with an imitation of Ray Lewis in the huddle and an impromptu dance through the team's agility ladder drill. Accompanied by four well-dressed attendants, Snoop Dogg watched practice from the sideline, then went in the huddle to break the team down with Lewis' "What time is it?" pre-game ritual. Players responded enthusiastically with loud woofing. "You can tell that Snoop is an entertainer," coach John Harbaugh said.

The early candidate for rap album of the year begins with a mother warning her son to stop following in the footsteps of his incarcerated father. The colorfully delivered advice was given to Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson, the 24-year-old rapper better known as YG who performs Wednesday at Baltimore Soundstage. Although YG did not adhere to the counsel (he spent six months in jail for residential burglary before he signed to Def Jam in 2009), the Compton, Calif., MC proved he was on his own path with the release of “My Krazy Life,” an acclaimed first album that debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 in March.

They call me `Ross Perot,'" Snoop Dogg boasts. "You know why? You know why they call me `Ross Perot?' Because I got a whole lot of money." Dogg doesn't laugh at his own joke, but then he can afford not to. A gangsta renaissance man, the rapper/producer/actor/porn purveyor may stoke the flames of controversy, but everything he touches seems to turn to gold, and he's laughing all the way to the bank. His latest project, however, is downright benign: He plays Huggy Bear, the ultra-hip informant to detectives David Starsky (Ben Stiller)

It's been a long time since Snoop Dogg's career has been defined by his music. The 40-year-old rapper from Long Beach, Calif., exists in a rare pop-culture stratosphere where most of his headlines are garnered for decisions made outside of the recording booth. He's directing porn (thanks, Hustler)! He's a reality TV dad (“Snoop Dogg's Father Hood”)! He's been rechristened as Snoop Lion during a spiritual trip to Jamaica! And, oh yeah, he releases music sometimes, too (most recently the Major Lazer-produced reggae track "La La La")

The world needs many things besides (but still including) that "love, sweet love" thing. The world needs poets rhetorically nimble enough to articulate the breadth of our anxieties and hopes. The world needs leaders who can guide us through the perils of this scary new world with wit and assurance. What the world doesn't need is a remake of Car Wash, especially when it's as moronic as The Wash. The original Car Wash, from 1976, though not a classic, was openhearted and funny. It may have meandered too much, but what didn't meander in the 1970s?

Just as winter begins to bum everyone out with its dropping temperatures and dark-by-4:30-p.m. routine, the newly liberated Coachella lineup has us daydreaming of spring and a weekend trip to the west coast. Seemingly every year, Coachella sets the standard for Important Music Festivals, and 2012 is no exception. There's a lot of talking points but here's a quick run-down: Underappreciated and surprisingly influential bands are reuniting (Refused, At the Drive-In), Radiohead will play, David Guetta and the Shins are listed next to each other on the poster (exemplifying the festival's continued steps toward sonic diversity)

This surprise show, headlined by hip-hop's most popular potheads, sold out quickly, unsurprisingly. This year was Wiz's breakthrough year, scoring hits and Grammy nominations (two for "Black and Yellow," sorry Ravens fans) from his major-label debut, "Rolling Papers. " And, well, Snoop is Snoop, a veteran who has transformed from a great rapper to a consistently OK rapper. On record together, they both sound charismatic and at home bragging about their weed habits and the like. The duo's film, "Mac and Devin Go to High School," doesn't have a release date but the soundtrack does - next Tuesday.  The first single, "Young, Wild and Free," features a breezy hook from Bruno Mars and will likely make up thousands of Facebook statuses in the near future, if it hasn't reached that number already (an unofficial version leaked this past summer)

This year's Rock the Bells tour arrives at Merriweather with a twist. In addition to the show's usual multigenerational mix of hip-hop, this year's headlining acts are performing their most acclaimed albums in their entirety. It's a concept more familiar to fans of rock and roll, but, hey, hip-hop has its classics too. Here are three must-own rap records — all released in November of 1993 — you'll hear Sunday. "Doggystyle" He was Snoop Doggy Dogg when this, his solo debut, was released and further defined the West Coast G-funk style.

For live music lovers, Tuesday night was a clash of the titans: Van Morrison, Jay-Z, Jewel and Snoop Dogg all performed at different Baltimore venues. It's rare to see such a diverse lineup of star musicians at once in Baltimore. Here are excerpts from reviews of the four shows, which originally appeared on the night life and music blog Midnight Sun: Jay-Z at 1st Mariner Arena: : Jay-Z's performance was a 90-minute hit parade that toured through "The Black Album," "Vol. 2 ... Hard Knock Life" and the rapper's latest No. 1 album (his 11th to debut at No. 1, which surpasses Elvis' record)

NEW YORK --Talk about a tour manager's worst nightmare. Chad Hugo had missed his flight from Virginia, skipped rehearsal and wasn't picking up the phone. Worse still, with less than an hour until show time, it appeared the 32-year-old multi-instrumentalist and superstar pop producer wasn't going to be anywhere within three states of the Big Apple in time for a taping of Late Show With David Letterman, where he was scheduled to perform with his gold-selling hip-hop/rock/new wave group N.E.R.
