The disgruntled rapper has documented his experience of being arrested in Sweden on suspicion of using illegal drugs.
Finding himself under arrest was the last thing Snoop Dogg expected after performing on stage in the city of Uppsala, Sweden. Following a concert on Saturday (25 July), the rapper was pulled over by Swedish police on suspicion of using illegal drugs, reports The Guardian.

After the success of the first 'Pitch Perfect' and, more specifically, the 'Cup' song, the soundtrack for the sequel has a lot to live up to. However, there is a thing as trying to be too clever and here is a perfect example.
By trying to cram even more songs into each a cappella mash-up, some tracks just don't work without the visual aid of the movie and it becomes a race to recognize just what has been used. Two/three lines and it is on to the next song. 'Riff Off' starts off enjoyable, with a cover of 'Thong Song', but then goes through a circle of booty-complimenting tracks at a dizzying speed where it confuses and loses itself. A better example of a mash-up would be The Barden Bella's 'World Championship Finale' as you can clearly hear each tune used throughout.
The song that leads the entire soundtrack - also the lead single - is Jessie J's 'Flashlight' written by Sam Smith and Sia. By far the most memorable, it is a highlight to the album and is what will keep people coming back to listen to it. An inspirational ballad, it is by far one of Jessie J's best singles, but as the success of Anna Kendrick and 'Cups' showed, a big star isn't always needed to get radio play time. There is also a surprise performance from Snoop Dogg and Anna Kendrick, which is a nice way to break up the a cappella sound of the album. The other original track is 'Crazy Youngsters' performed by Ester Dean, which adds a modern and more 'pop' sound to the soundtrack. These 3 tracks are undeniably stand-out numbers in an otherwise very predictable album.

According to USA Today, the 85 year old director and actor was introducing Dwayne Johnson to the stage when he made a remark about The Rock’s famous career switch from wrestler to actor. The joke reportedly compared his career leap to those of “Jim Brown and Caitlyn somebody”.
Snoop Dogg was upset that the Jenner story is getting more publicity than his friend Akon's humanitarian efforts in Africa.
Snoop Dogg has triggered a serious social media storm after lashing out about the recent news coverage dedicated to Caitlyn Jenner on Instagram. The rapper posted a meme which described the 65 year old reality star as a “science project”, because he felt the story was overshadowing the humanitarian efforts of his friend Akon in Africa.
He posted on Wednesday (June 3rd) with a photo caption: “Shout out to Akon! He is about to supply 600 million africans with solar power. I’m really upset that this isn’t major news but that science project bruce jenner is #Society.” Quickly, he faced a deluge of negative reaction branding his comments as insensitive.

Snoop Dogg a feminist? Say what?
Snoop Dogg claims to have reformed himself into a bit of a feminist after promising not to refer to women in derogatory terms in his new songs. That means you'll no longer be hearing the phrases b*ches, hoes, or whores in his lyrics.
Snoop Dogg says he's turning his women-insulting ways around
"Definitely, my attitude has changed towards women," he told Sky News. "I am more sensitive and more vulnerable writing-wise and accepting a woman for being a beautiful person, as opposed to me saying she is a bitch and a whore."
Continue reading: Snoop Dogg Is Now A Feminist. So, That Happened.
The rapper would never write such lyrics now, he claims, but thinks that his early songs reflected his attitude back then and doesn't regret them.
Snoop Dogg has defended himself against accusations of sexism in his lyrics, claiming that his attitude towards women has “changed” since he first emerged onto the scene in the early ‘90s.
The iconic rap veteran, who as long ago as 2007 was branded a “misogynist” by Oprah Winfrey, was speaking to Sky News. “What's changed for me is that I have a family,” he said. “I have a different perspective and view on life, I have more concern with life. Twenty years ago I didn't have no responsibilities, I was an ex-gang member who was still affiliated with gangs. I was hard headed and didn't listen. I had nothing to live for but me.”
Snoop Dogg spoke about his past lyrics

Who knew Snoop Dogg was a Norwich F.C. fan?
US rapper Snoop Dogg hasn’t exactly struck us in the past as a fan of English football league club Norwich F.C., but the West Coast rapper has shown his support for the team by wearing their jersey during his performance at Radio One’s Big Weekend on Saturday.
Snoop played Radio One’s Big Weekend on Saturday.
Perhaps the rapper had heard about the team’s important clash on Monday with Middlesborough at Wembley and wanted to show his support for the Canaries. Or maybe he was just trying to endear himself to the Big Weekend crowd.
Snoop Dogg isn't really someone who needs much of an introduction. He's a gangsta rap pioneer, he's released some quality albums packed with his signature laid-back swagger and polished flow, and, until 2013, he'd stayed pretty true to his defined sound. That all changed with the release of 'Reincarnated' under the name Snoop Lion. That 'reggae' album, and I use the term very loosely, was hugely disappointing, and reeked of a quick cash-in over and above a genuine tribute to a genre that has clearly been very inspiring to the Doggfather. So, when 'Bush' was announced, and along with that came the news that Pharrell Williams would be producing the entire album, a partnership that had worked fantastically with the 2004 'R&G: The Masterpiece' album, I was excited for a return to the glory days. Pharrell's talent and musical ear cannot be denied, even though I'm not personally the biggest fan of his most recent, if indeed most successful, work with last year's 'Girl' album, but surely two musicians of this calibre, given their previous track records, would collaborate to release an album that would be on repeat for weeks.
I can't say that's exactly what's happened though. I was hoping for a return to hip-hop for Snoop, following 'Reincarnated''s reggae direction, but instead he flips over to funk for the majority of 'Bush'. There are a couple of rap verses, and a couple of decent enough guest spots from a number of MCs, Kendrick Lamar's verse on 'I'm Ya Dogg' is dope, but pretty much everything contributed from Snoop Dogg on 'Bush' is sung, and although his vocals are smooth and charismatic, they're just not skilled enough to be convincing across the entirety of the album. Tracks like 'I Knew That' highlight the weaknesses in Snoop's vocal, with some of it coming across overly processed and unnatural. Sometimes it works though; the hook on 'Awake' is tasteful and well executed, the verses pale in comparison, however, with weak lyricism in the brief rap and a heavily manipulated Pharrell Williams pre-chorus vocal - and he can actually sing!
Most of the highlights on 'Bush' come on tracks where Snoop is joined by a guest. The album's opener 'California Roll', which features none other than Stevie Wonder, is a dope opener, and sets the tone of the album effectively. 'Peaches N Cream', which was also the album's first single, is a classy, funky track with an infectious vibe and a catchy hook. Snoop is joined by long term collaborator Charlie Wilson, who adds to Snoop's charismatic performance, and it includes one of the very few places he actually spits, and although lyrically his verses aren't anything that will make your jaw drop, he does sound calm and cool on the upbeat, disco-esque track. Pharrell's influence is clear, and Charlie Wilson's sophisticated, soulful vocal is a nice addition. However, although Kendrick's verse is definitely up to standard, Rick Ross' appearance on 'I'm Ya Dogg' feels rather lacklustre and, quite frankly, 'Run Away' could have done without Gwen Stefani, who just sounds out of place.

Snoop Dogg thinks 'Game of Thrones' is real.
Snoop Dogg appears to believe that Game Of Thrones, the fictional HBO show that has DRAGONS in it, is based on real life. The rapper is a devoted fan of the show and has contributed to the show's season five mix-tape with the track Lannister's Anthem.
Game of Thrones has dragons in it. Snoop Dogg thinks Game of Thrones is historically accurate.
However, in an interview with the New York Post, Snoop revealed that he watches the show for historical reasons.

What happens when you take Pharrell, Snoop Dog, Snoop's favourite medication, and Stevie Wonder? A crazy story - that's what!
With Snoop Dog's 'Bush' set to hit shelves on 12th May 2015, Snoop and the record's producer, Pharrell Williams, took some time to give an interview about the creation of some of the tracks from the album. One of the main topics of conversation, however, turned out to be how they got Stevie Wonder to appear on the song 'California Role', and how the two musicians reacted to his arrival.
'California Role' was released on 5th May 2015
Pharrell originally played the song 'California Role' while the two were recording the album in Miami, apparently because it was a song he had made that had never made it onto an album. Snoop knew he couldn't rap over the song, so he reached out to a friend of his to write some lyrics for him, before he realised that the song was calling out for Stevie Wonder.
Bieber's ordeal, conducted by Kevin Hart, went down a storm, and was the third most-watched Comedy Central roast ever.
The much-anticipated Comedy Central roast of Justin Bieber, as expected, drew strong viewing figures when it was broadcast on Monday evening. With ratings of 4.4 million from 10pm to midnight, it was the night’s top-rated program in most male demographics and ranks as the network’s third most-watched roast ever, according to Variety.
Featuring the comedian-of-the-moment Kevin Hart as the roast master, celebrities as varied as Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg queued up to aim zingers at the 21 year old, the youngest person ever to be roasted. Subjects included his love life, music and numerous scrapes with the law. Even Will Ferrell made a special appearance as his character Ron Burgundy from the hit comedy Anchorman!

Snoop Dog and Hulk Hogan teaming up to take down Curtis Axel is the best thing that no one asked for.
By this point in modern popular culture, one could assume that all the greatest combinations have already been discovered or made. We already know of all the simple pleasures like peanut butter and chocolate and puppies in funny costumes, so surely there isn't anything new that can come from pairing two usually unpaired things. 'Not so!' cried WWE, and thus the world was introduced to the concept of Hulk Hogan and Snoop Dog joining forces to beat up a professional wrestler.
In a recent episode of Wrestlemania, wrestler Curtis Axel was all set to begin the take-over movement of #Axelmania. That is, until Snoop Dog chose to promote the event, leading to a twitter exchange between the two, and Axel crashing the Snoopmania party. At this point, Snoop and Axel took some time to do the usual WWE thing and hurl PG13 abuse at one another. Until Snoop unveiled his secret weapon.

The ‘Peaches and Cream’ rapper delivered the festival’s keynote speech on Friday morning.
Rapper Snoop Dogg has announced he’s developing a new drama series for HBO, alongside director Allen Hughes and writer Rodney Barnes. The 43 year old made the announcement as he delivered the keynote address at this year’s South by Southwest festival on Friday morning.
Snoop Dogg is developing a drama series for HBO
According to Deadline, Snoop said the drama would be set in in early 1980s Los Angeles and centers on ‘a family whose seemingly idyllic life is turned upside down by the collision of their community and American politics.’
So will this mark a real turning point for the Biebs?
Say what you will about Justin Bieber, but the man seems to have acquired a sense of humour recently. Justin flexed his self-irony muscles during a dedicated Comedy Central roast on Saturday, where the topics ranged from his poppy tunes, to his run-ins with the law, to his overall obnoxious behaviour.
Gone are the Biebs Baby days.
And his roasters... well, even some of Bieber's closest collaborators had a go - from head roaster Kevin Hart, to Ludacris, Shaquille O'Neal, Snoop Dogg, Jeffrey Ross and even Martha Stewart, there was no mercy for the Biebs.

Idina Menzel singing the National Anthem, Katy Perry riding a giant lion - it could only be the Super Bowl.
The Super Bowl is possibly the most anticipated and well-known sporting event of every year; a game of American Football, set to decide the National Football League champion team for that season. On 1st February 2014, the New England Patriots fought the Seattle Seahawks for the title, in a game that saw Quarterback Tom Brady win his fourth Super Bowl and third Super Bowl MVP award. In the end, the New England Patriots won the game with 28, against the Seattle Seahawks 24.

Idina Menzel received the honour of singing the American National Anthem during the opening ceremony, while Katy Perry received critical praise for her half-time show performance, featuring Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott. With the Super Bowl being such a loved sporting event, it should be no surprise that a whole host of celebrities made an appearance at the show to watch their favourite teams. Amongst those in attendance were Snoop Dog, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Chris Pratt, Anna Faris and many more.

Nelly offered some sound advice to Iggy Azalea whilst being interviewed by the Australian press.

Nelly has some good advice for Iggy Azalea and for pretty much anyone else who has been the focus of unpleasant insults and cruel pranks - ignore the haters but appreciate the fact you are influential enough to be discussed.

Snoop regales us of his White House joint. Is it true? Who cares
Snoop Dogg has joined Willie Nelson as weed-loving musicians who have smoked in the White House if his online show, ‘GGN: The Double G News Network’ is to be believed. Well, Nelson actually puffed marijuana on the roof of the White House during Jimmy Carter’s presidency, but you get the point.
Snoop Dogg isn't sheepish about his White House blaze
According to Snoop, he lit up "In the bathroom, not in the White House, but in the bathroom.” As far as we’re concerned, if you take a dump in the White House, you’ve taken a dump in the White House.

Both Snoop Dogg and Psy have drawn criticism from fans for a multitude of reasons, here are just a few of them:
In one of the oddest collaborations since Nelly gave country artist Tim Mcgraw a call and asked to bring his Louisiana drawl to the R&B track “Over And Over”, Snoop Dogg has teamed up with South Korean viral success Psy to unleash the track “Hangover” upon the world. It’s not the first time the G-funk master has produced a piece of work with an artist from disparate corners of the music world. He has previously teamed up with Miley Cyrus for the track “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks” during the rapper’s ill-conceived stint as adopting the Rastafarian lifestyle under the moniker of Snoop Lion.
Snoop Dogg and Psy's collaboration has been widely attacked by both of their respective fans.
Debuting in the US on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the video attained over 3.5 million views in 24 hours and currently boasts viewing figures of almost 25 million. But such figures are small fry for K-pop megastar Psy, who has become the first artist to break the 2 billion mark on Youtube. The video itself depicts Snoop and Psy trying various purported South Korean cures for the after effects of excessive inebriation, as well as their clips from their hedonistic exploits from the day before. As for the music itself, it contains all the tropes of Psy’s previous opus- blaring synthesizers and a skewed chorus hook designed to burrow into your brain and resolutely refuse to leave.
