Snoop Dogg Forbid From Entering UK After Airport Altercation
Published: May. 16, 2006 - London, UK
The United Kingdom's Home Security department has made a decision regarding rapper Snoop Dogg's debacle at the Heathrow Airport last month. The incident which landed Snoop, born Calvin Broadus, and several members of his crew in jail has now been extended even further.
The Home Office has officially denied Broadus entry into the United Kingdom until further notice, likely forever. The governmental authority's argument claims that Snoop's previous drug and gun convictions in the US are adequate reason enough to deny entry. Additionally, the rapper is also prohibited from flying with British Airways for life.
SoundSlam reported in late April that Snoop and his entourage were denied access into the British Airways' first-class lounge as they were en route to South Africa for a music festival. Tensions grew and a physical incident then took place between the rapper's crew and members of the police force, leaving seven officers with minor injuries.
In other related Doggy Dogg news, the Cali-born rapper has secured multiple marketing deals in various business areas. Some of his latest endeavors include deals with T-Mobile, XM Satellite Radio, Nokia, American Online, EV microphones. Snoop has also even delved into the food industry with a foot-long hot dog series courtesy of Platinum Stars and pet products alongside JAKKS Pacific. Lastly, Broadus is also promoting the Hip Hop Gaming League with the help of MTV.
