Snoop Dogg, Mack 10, Xzibit To Come Together For "A Day In The West"

Snoop Dogg, Ice-T, Mack 10, and Xzibit are a few of the hip-hop artists that have agreed to take part in an upcoming event being billed as "A Day in the West," scheduled to take place on August 19 at an undisclosed location in Los Angeles.

The meeting of the West Coast rappers is aimed at documenting and archiving the important role the region has played in the development of hip-hop as the millennium draws to a close.

"A Day in the West" will conclude with a commemorative photograph of all the participating artists by Arnold Turner and loosely based on the famous "A Great Day in Harlem" picture and its recent update (see "Jermaine Dupri, Salt N' Pepa, Wu Tang Clan, Others To Update "A Great Day In Harlem").

Other folks who have signed on to participate in the "A Day In The West" conference include King Tee, Hammer, DJ Quik, Tone Loc, Tha Alkoholiks, Soopafly, Yo-Yo, and Defari, with more confirmations expected.

While the

artists attending will be on-hand to meet and greet one another and share ideas, there are currently no plans to hold a concert in conjunction with "A Day in the West."
