Snoop Says He Can Solve the U.K.’s Gang Problem

Snoop Dogg, who was officially banned from entering the U.K. last year, has stated that he can solve the country’s growing gang problem. According to Yahoo Music News, Snoop believes he is the ideal person to speak to youth in the country and discourage them from engaging in gang related activity. “I really wanted to be a voice to stop gang members, ’cause they respect me enough to get into a room with me, Snoop said. “By not permitting me, they’re saying they just don’t want me to solve this situation.” Snoop was banned from entering the U.K. because of a brawl between his entourage and authorities at Heathrow Airport in April of 2006, as well as his prior criminal record. “It’s not the fans, it’s just a few people in white wigs and members of parliament. They got a problem because the judicial law is from the 1800s.” In related news, Snoop is scheduled to host the MTV Europe Awards tomorrow night (November 1) in Munich, Germany.

    Okay. If he says so.

    What can he do? He’s banned from the country.

    Besides, what’s he doing talking about something going on in the UK? Ain’t he supposed to be cleaning toilets?

    XD

      What the hell do you mean, “ain’t he supposed to be cleaning toilets?” Alright he’s banned. that point is valid, but atleast he’s reaching out. Snoop’s done a lot of good. Katrina charity and many more. Football teams. How can u hate. Even Donald Trump had him on the Apprentice. Snoop is doing what Pac would have done if he was still here. STOP HATIN’!

    I hear ya Durty, sounds to me, like he just wants to get into a country he knows he can make money off of. He’s a bit of a hypocrite anyway, how you gonna solve gang problems if the reason you were banned was for acting like a thug? Oh by the way its Pound Sterling, not UK Dollar.

    peace.

    When England say they have a gang problem, they don’t mean like here in the US. In England the regular popo to this day still don’t carry guns, so at least their is not a lot of shootings. In order for it not to get like that there, they are right to keep people like SNOOP out of England. I listen to & stil listen to Grap, but I am an adult & I don’t & never have been in a gang or owned a gun, maybe growing up in England has a lot to do with that. I am in my 30s now but I have lived here since I was 12. See what a good foundation can do for a person, I grew in the hood in Brooklyn since 12 years old, but no gang never had an influence on me when I was growing up there. I had the chronic album when it came out & the other albums after that, but I never did any of the things that they said on the records. ps I am lying I like the CHRONIC, by that I mean the real CHRONIC yall.

    I think Snoop Dogg can help try and solve the increasing violence here in the U.K, but for one, it’s not something he can solve alone. People can relate and respect Snoop Dogg because of his gang affiliation, but that’s the problem- how can he and or other individuals who glorify gang culture stop others from joining gangs? When artists brag and market gang culture in their music, wave rags in TV appearances etc. then turn around and say ‘don’t do it’ gives out a mixed message to say the very least. A lot of this country’s gang culture is an imitation of American gang culture, so Snoop Dogg in that respect may be a credible individual to speak out against it. But even though Snoop is an ‘inactive’ Crip, I don’t think he will be too effective in hindering gang activity here when he, record company companies and others are still producing the same material which may be partially responsible for gang culture in some instances. Surely the serious step he should take would be to stop promoting gang culture in his music first.

  • J S-O-T

    Lol, this could possibly be the most retarded and desperate statement i’ve ever heard from a rapper, he is totally right about the justice system in the U.K though,it’s a joke (i’m from the U.K) and from what i can see on the streets, it’s gonna take more than Snoop dogg to knock some sense into these idiots, alot more.

  • roksteddy

    Go the Dawg for honorary Regulator. Show us u back up those words with a bit of action. Been a while aye…

  • http://x Long Beach VET

    First off, im Snoop Dogg dont even come to the hood that he claims. He aint even trying to stop the gang problem he the hood he grew up in. He hasnt built any youth facilities in the city of Long Beach. Yes he did start a football league but that was for his own pleasures and it aint like he letting the less fortunate kids play for free. That dude dont put on any benefit concerts for the youth and furthermore when someone from the hood he claims die or get killed nobody can go to Snoop and get a dollla (and those are the front line soldiers out there banging) He trying to go way across the ocean to help them when he wont help clean out his own back yard. Its all the the public eyes. A hollywood gangsta doing it for the camera. Dude worse then them folks fighting a war to clean up someone else country when we got problems here at home. Im from Long Beach so i see what goes down and how it goes down. Come home Snoop and offer the youth some jobs and some training. I challenge you to put something together with me for the youth and lets make a difference in our hood, before you try to go thousands of miles away. Lets clean up our back yard.

      Man you pussy. Fuck the UK. Chicago is the grittiest streets, everyone knows that. You homos don’t know shit about music or bein hard. And yaw sound funny, fuck ur accent. That shit is lame. Now before you think I’m ignorant, the only way to respond to someone ignorant is to show some ignorance, and finish off with intelligence. Last but not least, yaw not robbin’ shit, but some food out of peoples trash cans.

    LB Vet: funny how people never clean up their own street, it’s always feeding Africa, saving whales half a world away and now then the Pommie brats. That’s how the grass always stays greener… But hey, it’s never too late for the Snoopernator to become the underground mayor of his patch, doing good things for his peeples and sh1t… But b4 u grow fat and all, show us some actions first, mr Broad/\ss! I don’t think the authorities at Heathrow realized he was gona brief his crew in the 1st class lounge as part of his humanitary mission.

  • jetjockey

    hey idiot the Uk doesn’t have dollars, its
    called the pound and it has always been stronger than the US currency, trust me I was stationed there in the airforce and my lil brother is there now so please educate yourself on world currencies before you speak, the dollar has only started slipping against other curencies since Bush took office so what have you done to try to solve or stop gang violence, if nothing why knock someone that is at least attempting, if you don’t offer solutions then you are part of the problem and that is what is wrong with America’s youth now

  • billyjr

    Hey Snoop forget about London, there is better places to be!

  • nigga from memphis

    Snoop has the right to sow his seeds and evrything but if he want to impress solve that shit in cali.We know you can’t do too much elsewhere,cuz everyone is not gonna come together behind Snoop.But that shit sounds stupid though cuz thik about it:How is the gang problem in England effecting us.I didn’t know they had a major problem and they probably don’t cuz we never heard of it.Snoop,you doing alot of good stuff and maybe you don’t get the props you truly deserve for that,but it don’t help gettin in trouble over stupid shit,with stupid people around u gettin u in trouble at airports.Smoke 1 and stay out of trouble.We don’t bump you like we did back in the day but we still ridin with you
