Niemand will ihn

Ins Gefängnis musste er jetzt ja doch nicht, dafür wollte der Rapper Snoop Dogg auf die ehemalige Strafkolonie Australien. Doch die Australier machen es ihrem Mutterstaat UK gleich und lassen den armen Hund nicht rein. Wegen seinen etwas zu häufigen Gesetzesübertritten nicht nur in den USA kriegt er kein Visum für die Einreise nach Down-Under, wo er die MTV Australian Video Music Awards mitmoderieren sollte.
Der australische Einwanderungsminister Kevin Andrews sagte dazu im Radio:
"The reality is in relation to this man, that he was given a warning the last time, he has a whole string of convictions, and, just two weeks ago I was told he was convicted on a number of charges again and sentenced to three years‘ imprisonment on two, and three years‘ imprisonment on another, with five years‘ probation and a suspended sentence. He has been denied entry into the United Kingdom because he was caught with others causing affray at Heathrow Airport. He doesn’t seem the sort of bloke we want in this country. This man has been a member of a Los Angeles gang—and is still associated with it apparently—that’s been involved in murder, robberies and drug dealing in the LA area.”

Dann muss Snoop sich wohl wieder ins Studio setzen und weiter seinen Ego-Trip durchziehen. „Ego Trippin’“ heißt nämlich sein neues Soloalbum, das er mit Ausnahme von Pharell Williams komplett alleine produziert.

"I’mma do the whole record, me by myself. I don’t want no guest rappers, no singer, nothing. Just Snoop Dogg. I want you to feel me. When I think of all the greats before me … I bought Rakim’s album the other day for the hundredth time, no guest rappers. I bought one of KRS-One’s albums the other day for the hundredth time, no guest rappers."
"I don’t know whose record I’m buying right now because it’s so many people on it. Is it a compilation? What is it?"
