The rapper will headline a "unity party" for Democratic donors on July 28 in Philadelphia.

Snoop Dogg will bring the party to the Democratic Party at the Democratic National Convention later this month.

The West Coast rap veteran will headline a "unity party" for Democratic donors on July 28 at Philadelphia's Electric Factory, the Senate Majority PAC announced Tuesday. Grammy Award-winning rock band Los Lobos also will perform.

Snoop Dogg's political engagement comes a little over a year after he announced his Hillary Clinton co-sign. "You know I like to be politically correct, but sometimes I’m politically incorrect,” he said on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live in May 2015, a month after Clinton announced her bid for presidency.

"But I’ll say that I would love to see a woman in office because I feel like we’re at that stage in life to where we need a perspective other than the male’s train of thought," the rapper continued. "And just to have a woman speaking from a global perspective as far as representing America, I’d love to see that. So I’ll be voting for Ms. Clinton."

The 2016 Democratic National Convention is a four-day event set to run July 25-28 at the Wells Fargo Center Philadelphia. It will take place one week after the Republican National Convention, which is being held in Cleveland.

Billboard has reached out to Snoop Dogg's rep for comment.
