According to The Mirror, Prince Harry is currently courting Snoop Dogg and British rapper Tinie Tempah to perform at an upcoming engagement party for his brother Prince William, who announced this past week that he is engaged to Kate Middleton. Although Prince Harry has yet to meet with the Dogfather about the possibility of performing, sources reported that the Roc Nation hopeful Tinie Tempah is looking to make room in his schedule to perform.
“William and Harry hit it off with Tinie at the Wireless Festival and requested that he perform at their shindigs,” said an anonymous source. “Tinie’s schedule is packed, but he will clear his diary for this. The party will be low-key but fun with mini-burgers, fish and chips. They’ll do a formal party with their family too, but this one is for the cool kids.” (The Mirror)
This party isn’t the first time William and Harry have courted the Hip Hop community. Prince Harry has befriended the likes of Pharrell and Diddy, and is reportedly filming a BBC reality television show in Buckingham Palace with British rap sensations DJ Goldie and Ms. Dynamite. (November 19)
UPDATE: Snoop Dogg has provided Prince William with a song for his bachelor’s party. Titled “Wet,” Snoop spokespeople bill the song as a sequel to 2008’s “Sexual Eruption.” Produced by The Cataracs of Far East Movement fame, Snoop spoke of the gift “When I heard the royal family wanted to have me perform in celebration of Prince William’s marriage, I knew I had to give them a little something.” He continued, “’Wet’ is the perfect anthem for Prince William or any playa to get the club smokin’.”
“Wet” will premier on Snoop’s SnoopDogg.com website at precisely 4:20 pm PST today, November 30.
