Snoop Dogg celebrates birthday of man who helped clear murder charges
Well, the defense attorney walked Snoop Dogg through one of the most important moments of his life. In 1996, Snoop was arrested and charged with the murder of a gang member after his bodyguard shot and killed the man. At the time, Snoop was 24 and David kenner was his senior criminal defense attorney. Kenner represented Death Row Records, Suge Knight, Tupac Shakur, and of course… Scott Storch. At the time, Storch was a young producer working with Dr. Dre on the hottest beats of Hip Hop.
Ultimately, a jury acquitted the rapper for the crime, and Snoop spoke to the media after the monumental decision. “I prayed to God for this,” adding, “For the past few months I’ve been trying to figure out if I would be able to raise my son, you know what I’m saying? “
Kenner addressed the media after the verdict, saying: “What happened today was a fair and appropriate outcome, we look forward to the verdict on the remaining charges… and we are very optimistic that they will be resolved. “
The lawyer, who turned 80 this week, celebrated his birthday at a chic restaurant in Los Angeles.

Either way, it has become an impressive performance with Scott on the keyboard and Snoop rapping on the beats.
