There was a reason why Snoop Dogg was absent from the annual pre-Grammys Roc Nation Brunch hosted by Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles in Los Angeles Saturday, January 25. He didn’t come to the party because he wasn’t invited.
Snoop posted on Instagram a funny clip of a bulldog blinking its eyes while staying still like a statue with a stoned face. “Face I made when I found out about the rock nation brunch I wasn’t invited 2,” he wrote, adding a laughing-face emoji.
Although the soiree was dubbed Roc Nation Brunch, many artists who’re not signed to the company were in attendance. Kevin Hart, T.I., P. Diddy, Chrissy Lampkin, Gervonta Davis, Lana Del Rey, Quavo, Saweetie, Ari Lennox, and Chance the Rapper were among them.
Meanwhile, the Roc Nation stars included the likes of Rihanna, Meek Mill, Big Sean, MoneyBagg Yo, Megan Thee Stallion, Nick Jonas, and DJ Khaled.
Snoop was not the only big star absent at the party. Such A-listers as Eminem, Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, Drake, and Lil Wayne were nowhere in sight as well.
Former Roc-A-Fella Affiliate Choke No Joke suggested anyone as big as Jay would never be invited to the brunch because they would steal the attention away from the “99 Problems” hitmaker.
He shared his theory, “The only people bigger than him or as big as him that’s invited is @beyonce because that’s his wife and Trophy piece to get everyone else to attend in the first place and @diddy because he knows how to stroke Jay-Z ego and play a son to him. Jay-Z and Puff riding to the event together instead Jay and Bey look so suspect.”
