‘Redemption of a Dogg’ is a musical based on a multi-faceted character — a gangsta rapper, family man and man of God — and co-stars R&B singer Tamar Braxton.
R&B singer Tamar Braxton will be joining Snoop Dogg, who has partnered with award-winning writer, director and producer Je’Caryous Johnson, to bring this autobiographical musical to life. Redemption of a Dogg makes its debut on the heels of the 25th anniversary of Snoop Dogg’s debut album Doggystyle.
“I’m excited to link up with my guy Je’Caryous Johnson on Redemption of a Dogg the stage play,” said Snoop. “Please believe you’ve never seen urban theatre like this! With my flavor and his expertise, we’re gonna bring the people an unmissable show. I can’t wait for everyone out there to see it!”
Redemption of a Dogg is written, directed and produced by Je’Caryous Johnson and chronicles a character built around the person of Snoop Dogg – a multi-faceted character who is a gangsta rapper, family man and man of God.
The musical examines the internal battle one man has between preserving his life-long legacy and losing the love of his life when he is faced with choosing fame and fortune over faith and family. Redemption of a Dogg is set against a backdrop of Snoop Dogg’s greatest hits, as well as songs from this recently released chart-topping gospel album Bible of Love.
“I get to work with hip-hop legend Snoop. The thought alone leaves me speechless,” said Je’Caryous Johnson. “As a fan, it’s exciting and a dream come true and as a partnership this is revolutionary. The culture of American theatre is about to be redefined.”
To date, Johnson has toured over 21 stage play productions to sold-out crowds and written over 37 plays. Johnson’s most recent touring stage play was Set It Off, based on the critically acclaimed cult classic film by and starred hip-hop legend DaBrat.
In addition to hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg, Redemption of a Dogg will also star Grammy- and Emmy-nominated performer Tamar Braxton. Whether as an R&B hitmaker, a reality TV star, business entrepreneur or author, Braxton has amassed a legion of dedicated fans, affectionately known as her “Tamartians.” Since 2013, she has produced hit songs such as Love and War, The One, If I Don’t Have You and My Man from her most recent album Bluebird of Happiness.
“Seizing the opportunity to work with an icon such as Snoop was a no-brainer,” exclaimed Tamar. “His music has touched our culture in an undeniable way and I’m grateful to take the stage with him by my side, while Je’Caryous leads the way.”
