Fans in Norway won’t be seeing Snoop Dogg perform live for at least two years after he was banned from entering the country for two years because he was caught trying to bring a small amount of weed in with him last month.
According to the Associated Press, Snoop was on his way to a music festival in June when drug sniffing dogs detected eight grams of the sticky icky in his luggage. He was also carrying more cash than is legally allowed. He admitted to the two offenses and was fined 52,000 kroner ($8,600).
Snoop’s legal representative in Norway, Holger Hagesaeter, told The Associated Press on Saturday that his client “can live with the decision” and has no immediate plans to appeal it.
Ever since Drake’s arrival on the music scene he has been able to successfully incorporate both rapping and singing into his songs. That ability, along with his skillful songwriting has endeared him to hundreds of thousands of fans and make him a very rich man at the young age of 25.
But is he the first rapper that is also a successful singer?
In a new interview with The Jewish Chronicle the Toronto native says he believes he is the first.
“There were people who incorporated melody before me,” Drake tells the JC. “But I would deem myself the first person to successfully rap and sing.“
Clearly Drake did not think this through before answering because artists like 50 Cent, Lauryn Hill, Missy Elliot, Bone-Thugs-n-Harmony, Nelly, Andre 3000, DMX and many more we could name have been rapping and singing for years before Drizzy came along.
Twitter is already buzzing with fans disputing Drake’s claim.
