Snoop Dogg Defends Scandalous Kansas Basketball Set

Snoop Dogg attends the Prive Revaux Investor Closing Party at Club James in Beverly Hills on August 23, 2018 in Beverly Hills, California.

Snoop Dogg seems pretty befuddled by the reaction to his performance at Kansas' Midnight Madness festivities. Some aspects of Snoop's show were nearly comically out of sync with what Kansas probably wants to present under the guise of the NCAA.

The show came just 11 days after Kansas was hit with a severe Notice of Allegations from the NCAA regarding payments Adidas reps made to players and for a lack of institutional control, too, making their decision to bring in the iconic rapper even more questionable.

Snoop came equipped with a money gun that he shot into the crowd as well as several stripper poles that came equipped with strippers twerking their behinds on the court.

KU Director of Athletics Jeff Long issued a statement over the weekend apologizing to fans for the show.

"I take full responsibility for not understanding what acrobatic dancers are in today's entertainment world and offer my personal apology to anyone who was offended".

But Snoop insists he won't be following suit, and admits he had a great time at the gig.

"The audience enjoyed that s-", Snoop told shock jock Howard Stern on Tuesday.

Roy Wood Jr. and Michael Kosta talked about the Jayhawks in a segment called "I Apologize For Talking While You're Talking".

He also dismissed reports suggesting he was asked the leave the university immediately after his set.

"That's a motherf**king lie".

"I think it was more the publicity of what I did", Snoop said, via TMZ.

"I enjoyed myself", he said.

Snoop Dogg went on to say that he respects the school and that they didn't do anything wrong but understood that they had to cover up the publicity.

You wouldn't expect anything less from a Snoop Dogg's performance, no matter what the setting.
