Saturday, April 11: Kurupt and Kokane's West Coast Party

Cultura Events Center

By Jose Gutierrez Jr., M.Ed. on April 8, 2015

"Legendary" is not a word to be tossed around, but I can't think of a better description for West Coast rap/hip-hop legends Kurupt of Tha Dogg Pound and Pamona-bred hookmaster Kokane, and their "West Coast Party." Kurupt is no stranger to the Pacific Northwest, having made nearly a dozen visits in the past few years. Kokane now calls the Puget Sound home. Kokane is second only to Nate Dogg (RIP) in terms of his notoriety for lacing chorus on hooks. From their platinum-selling heydays to today, they both have maintained legendary status as lyricists. Represent that D-P-G Saturday night.

KURUPT & KOKANE'S WEST COAST PARTY, 9 p.m., Cultura Events Center, 5602 S. Washington, Tacoma, $25-$100,
