Snoop Dogg is a well-known figure in the music industry who has a long list of accomplishments. In addition to his rapping ability, the Doggfather is a smart individual. In a recent interview with DJ Whoo Kid, Snoop Dogg revealed that Queen Elizabeth II had his support when the UK tried to banish him.
Snoop Dogg appears to have great ties to Buckingham Palace, believe it or not. The Doggfather discussed being embraced by senior U.K. He was nearly exiled from the European country in 1993 while fighting the murder accusation he was famously acquitted of in an interview published by DJ Whoo Kid on Wednesday, February 23.
“You got to embrace this shit because you used to be a young n-gga. N-ggas didn’t understand us when I was 17. Look at all of the footage of me when I was a young n-gga. They was trying to — they kicked me out the U.K.!”
The incident in question dates back to Snoop Dogg’s debut tour in the United Kingdom in 1994, when several of the country’s leading tabloids, notably The Daily Star, published headlines asking for his expulsion from the country.
“‘Kick this evil bastard out’. Look at me, It’s a headline n-gga. That shit is documented. They had a picture of me on the front, I had a handcuff on one of my hands — this a picture I took. I got a handcuff on one of my hands — and the other one was off. I had my hands up like this and they didn’t like it. They was like, ‘Kick this evil bastard out.’”
The Back On Death Row lyricist went on to tell how Queen Elizabeth II used the royal family’s influence to keep him from being deported from the United Kingdom.
“But guess who came to my defense?” Snoop Dogg inquired rhetorically. “The Queen n-gga. The Queen said ‘This man has done nothing in our country he can come.’ The Queen n-gga, bow down. When The Queen speaks bow down.”
“That’s Harry and William’s grandmother you dig. You think you think they weren’t there saying ‘Grandma please let him in grandma he’s OK, we love his music.’ ‘You know Harry, I’ll let him in for you he’s not so bad after all and he’s quite cute.’”
The 50-year-old Long Beach native closed the video with a shout-out to Queen Elizabeth II, who has been the target of an unverified death rumor since February 23, when Hollywood Unlocked’s Jason Lee claimed to have the exclusive.
