I Am Digital News says, AOL kicked off some major new developments at Monday’s AOL Future Front event. Speakers included rapper Snoop Dogg (or is it Snoop Lion now?). Snoop will be creating content for Verizon’s Go90 streaming platform, for which AOL is handling all ad sales (more on that soon). The night ended with a highly emotive performance from the Alabama Shakes, followed by a DJ set from the Dogg (Lion?) himself.
Now that Snoop Dogg will add content creator to his resume, we’ll soon discover how the rapper will utilize the verizon platform. Snoop has been making his rounds at various technology & entertainment based conferences including, SXSW in Austin, TX earlier this year.
