Dre & Snoop to perform at 2011 Mnet Asian Music Awards!

World renown hip hop artists Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg have announced that they will be performing at the 2011 Mnet Asian Music Awards!

Mnet released new information on November 27 revealing that the two artists will be performing at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on November 29, alongside some of Asia's hottest stars. For those unfamiliar with American hip hop, Dr. Dre is the figure behind the discovery of Eminem and is regarded as a world famous producer, while Snoop Dogg is the leader of the West Coast hip hop scene. He's also been nominated for 10 Grammy Awards as well.

This is the first ever time that such big figures from the hip hop scene will be joining on one stage in Asia, and many are hyping it up as the stage of living legends.

"We feel that we're taking one step further into truly being called the music ceremony to represent all of Asia, especially with the confirmation of such honorable artists attending from all over the world. They won't be just making an attendance, as we're also planning some special performances. Japan's top singer Koda Kumi, China's Jane Zhang Liang Ying, Lang Lang, Singapore's Richard Lee, and Fann Wong will also be coming together," said the MAMA.

Other artists currently confirmed include Super Junior, SNSD, 2NE1, miss A, YB, Dynamic Duo, Will.I.Am, apl.de.ap and others.

As always, the MAMA will be broadcast all over the world through 13 different broadcast networks. It will be held on November 29 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

  3. I really doubt they will perform a new single.
    If so I wonder why Dre choose Asia to begin promotion.
    But it can be a marketing plan though.

  4. If they would perform a new single, it would be all over the internet the following day and would create a huge buzz and after that it would be perfect to release it the following week on itunes!

  5. Asia is a massive untapped market with huge potential. If a new single was to be announced it could open a new revenue stream for Dre and the beats brand

  6. asia is the where the new superpower is.....it aint america anymore

    this highlights dre's business savy

  7. I doubt dr dre would perform in Asia for the hell of it, I see this the first signs of a detox campaign if dre was to perform I'm sure nuthin but a g thang, still dre, the next episode,kush. But like the others said this can be perfect position for a hype for detox by releasing a new single. Kush wasn't released how dre Intended too.

  8. This would be the perfect time and place to drop the new single. If they get Asia on their back, than Detox will do huge numbers. It would be strategically brilliant to kick off promo then and there.

    But it's the doctor, so hmmm...

    Hangover

  9. If they do perform a new single, Detox should be out soon.. I have this feeling that it really is finished and its just gonna drop out of nowhere. Maybe thats just wishful thinking but it seems that is the best way for Dre to drop it caz it will through everyone (especially all the haters) off guard and create a lot of publicity

  10. If he drops a single, the release date for the album would be probably around februari-march. Then he could release another single around january-february. The timing would be perfect now and it smart to create buzz in Asia also.

    But were talking about Dre so nobody knows. We will get most likely a performance of g thang, next episode and still dre and no news about Detox.

  11. Awwwww shit niggaz.dre performing in the motherland that shit smart AF, Asians love dr dre

  12. just like the english premier league plays so many matches in the morning so that it would be a good time for asia, because theres alot of fans there for many different things, and it would be great for the people who dont really know dre, and just like chronic and 2001, the first single features snoop. In my opinion, this is just perfect to start the promotion for detox, and as DOC said, the promotion might start in november, well, hopefully that will be right afterall...

  13. Sure there is some reasons why it can be a huge promotion, but I'm a bit suspicious with Dre. Plus there were lots of news from him and some artists these days, hope it's the time !
    Let's wait and see, 2 days is nothing compared to 10 years, aha !

    ReplyDelete
  14. you are all so dumb.
    there will be no new single. ( i bet all of ur families lifes on this)
    and he is doing it for beats exposure/ getting dre fans who will one day potentially buy detox.
    Nothing immediate on the detox front tho.
    So stop giving more morons false hope cuz u all look retarded

  15. All the biggest boxing matches and fights back in the day like Tyson's old bouts were held in Tokyo for good reasons and Asia is still a growing market with China. Japan and Korea have already been fairly welcoming to many Western artists and shit for a long time but as everyone knows, it's China that ends up being on paper the biggest potential market for music, business, everything now... if you can get there.

    I don't know why Dre and Snoop are performing in Singapore but there's probably a reason, maybe Dre is gonna hit up China so he can lobby the government to not allow bootleg Beats headphones or something. That's where the money is but you don't wanna sell that shit in a market until you make sure that market actually pays off without cheap fakes or bootlegs from Shenzhen diluting the market.

    Man do I doubt it's for any Detox promotion but it'd be nice. I'm just pretty sure this is about Dre selling Beats headphones in Asia, especially since HTC, a well-known high-end Taiwanese brand, bought a big stake not long ago.

  16. Well of course there going to play "KUSH" and no new detox single tho...

    ReplyDelete
  17. ^^^I agree. There is most likely not going to be a new single. It's most likely more business promotion opportunities that dre wants to tap into. Don't get your hopes up. I pray that we get some kind of info about detox out of this.. but most likely it will be like the performance that dre and snoop did in cannes.

  18. Or even at last year's Grammy Awards... man that was disappointing he didn't even mention it, even if the Interscope after-party set with Snoop was dope. It used to be years ago Dre would show up at these award shows to at least assure and acknowledge Detox was coming if anyone remembers. Now he acts like it doesn't exist and nobody is allowed to mention it when it's the only thing everyone wants to ask. He's on some Orwellian shit.

    Don't get your hopes up like the others said, I'm 99% sure he's there for his Beats brand and there's an awards show so he can get his name out to promote it too. Someone like Dre, a legendary Western artist that's a big name, performing overseas in a big televised event anywhere in Asia gets a lot of press and attention, so it's the best kind of marketing for Beats when someone like Dre shows up and performs. He'll likely have a list of promo events and shit to do since he's rarely ever anywhere in Asia (if he's ever been there) so I assure anyone thinking it's some Detox surprise that it's not a coincidence he's going at the same time he's trying to "be #2 to Apple" for his headphones. Hope I'm wrong but I'm not even going to consider I'm not.

  19. ^^^ he acts like it doesn't exist because it really does not exist!

    all you retards have to give up on this thing. do you actually think he's going to do a new single in asia? you guys are really getting desperate for this mythical thing...

    this performance is only for the beats promotion and will not have any new material. prob the same old shit: nuthin but a g thang, still d.r.e., kush, etc

    you guys need to stop sucking dre's dick and open your eyes...

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well don't come on this blog then you clearly don't think detox will ever come out so why click on this site to look at Dre news your the retard not us

    ReplyDelete
  21. Lol "Detox does not exist", don't be so ignorant cuz it does. You think Detox is one big set up or what? Why on earth you come to this blog? Ok the chances of Dre performing his first single there and then aint big, but don't shit on those who keep faith cuz you guys will be bumpin Detox all day when its there.

  23. I don't know what "Detox doesn't exist" even means. Are you saying they never recorded or mixed songs out of sessions recording for it? They never made material for it? The leaks we've heard, especially in '08 and '09, were all fake or meant for something else entirely?

    It doesn't even make sense. Of course it exists, it's just about whether when and how Dre wants to put it together for final release if he ever does. I wouldn't be surprised when things calm down for Beats or he gets bored of it he'll put out Detox regardless, he wouldn't be producing for everyone all the time for 20 years if he didn't absolutely love making music.

  24. ^^^ "detox doesn't exist" means that there is no intention of EVER putting out an album titled "Detox"

    clearer?

    ReplyDelete
  25. There's been intention but you obviously have no idea how this works. Nobody at Interscope or Aftermath is writing checks, devoting their resources (especially in the case of Aftermath which is a small boutique label), and spending big money on recording, mixing, and engineering songs without any intent to put together a hot CD that not only sells but sells for a long time. If you're mad you're mad but I feel you on it too, I've been going on 8 years on this motherfucker but there's too much going on in hip-hop, music, or hopefully even your life to get up in arms.

    You seen the Hey Young World video right? Look at all those guys in the session, they're not there for free, they're getting paid and someone is writing their checks, and Dre is feeling his own beat having fun. Major labels wouldn't spend huge money on albums like that unless they expect to make it back either by other ventures (Beats) or the CD sales which is revenue for the executive producers and label.

    They want to put it out but Dre is Dre, he's not putting out his LAST LP until and unless it's absolutely perfect. If it's not, it won't be seen or heard. He gets no other chance after this so feel that. He knows we're waiting, we know he's also secretive, but he's been working on it hard on and off for a long time. Give the man a break, saying he has no intention of putting out Detox is just stupid and baseless, I guarantee if you had money you wouldn't be writing checks literally all the time to all these people unless you expected something to come out of it.
