Slightly Stoopid, hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg and Reggae’s favorite son Stephen Marley will team up for this summer’s BLAZED AND CONFUSED tour. The three acts are joining forces for the first time to create the summer soundtrack of 2009.
Stephen Marley is a member of the celebrated Marley sibling group The Melody Makers since the age of seven, Stephen Marley, the Grammy winning producer, singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist has also been the driving creative force behind the music of his brothers.
Stephen's production, performance and writing credits recently earned him two Grammys, giving him a total of five: more than any other Marley family member OR reggae artist in history! His most recent win was for his album Mind Control featuring Mos Def, Ben Harper, and brothers Damian and Julian. He has since reworked that album into a soulful, all-acoustic project. Now Stephen has built and laid the foundations for a full-blown Marley family renaissance with Mind Control Acoustic. It's an album full of confidence and diversity in styles and emotion.
This summer Stephen Marley is joining forces with Snoop Dogg and punk-reggae veterans Slightly Stoopid for the "Blazed and Confused" tour of North America. The tour launches July 10th in Nevada.

As Snoop says, this tour will reunite him with “his nephews” Slightly Stoopid. “We’re gonna go out and just basically give the people a good time,” Snoop says. “Ya’ll just make sure ya’ll tune in because Snoop Dogg and Slightly Stoopid, we gonna be rippin, rockin, flippin, floppin, hippin and hoppin in a hood near you.”
Slightly Stoopid’s Miles Doughty adds, “Stoopid and Snoop are gonna be brewing up a melting pot of West Coast madness and taking it out for the whole country to see!”
