Hot Dogg! Snoop Dogg’s Bklyn show tix on sale today!

Snoop Dogg is coming to Brooklyn.

Snoop Dogg is coming to Brooklyn, fo shizzle.

On April 19, Snoop Dogg, the hip-hop hitmaker behind such singles as “What’s My Name” and “Gin & Juice,” will perform at Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg.

The venue is a tad small for the star — the last time he performed in Brooklyn, in July 2008, he filled the significantly larger Keyspan Park in Coney Island — but one that he and his handlers particularly sought out, according to Peter Shapiro, owner of the music venue-restaurant-bowling alley hybrid.

“This is exactly what we envisioned when we opened Brooklyn Bowl: large acts digging in for an intimate show,” said Shapiro. “Snoop was made for the Bowl.”

Since his 1993 debut, “Doggystyle,” Snoop Dogg has been a strong fixture on the rap scene as a musician and producer, as well as appearing in his fair share of movies and television shows.

Last year saw the release of the artist’s 10th studio album, “Malice in Wonderland,” a precursor to all the Lewis Carroll appreciation of late?. And on March 23, he’ll release “More Malice,” an eight-song disc and 40-minute mini-movie entitled “Malice N Wonderland: The Movie,” wherein Snoop plays the lead as a superhero on a mission to save his city.

Is there anything this guy can’t do (other than stay sober)?

Snoop Dogg plays Brooklyn Bowl [61 Wythe Ave. between N. 11th and N. 12th streets in Williamsburg, (718) 963-3369] April 19. Tickets are $50. For info, visit www.brooklynbowl.com.
