Snoop Dogg banned from Norway
More woe for Snoop Dogg not only has the MC only come in at number eight in the richest rappers alive chart with a paltry $110million to his name, but now Snoop has been banned from entering Norwary for two years and fined 52,000 krone (that's about £5,500).
The west coast rapper was arrested last month at Kjevik Airport for possession of, if you can believe it, marijuana. Snoop was found with eight grams of the drug, so about just one joints worth for the weedaholic. A lawyer for the star has admitted that there will not be any kind of appeal towards the decision citing that Snoop "can live with the decision." This comes just six months after the Doggfather was arrested in Texas forcing him to cancel a European tour.

Bloc also puts a strong emphasis on the visual aesthetics involved in production of live music, which sets them aside from this summer’s competition. [read more]
