Snoop Dogg

For those who don't remember, Snoop Dogg had been banned from the UK from a massive brawl which took place at an airport. Immigration officials believed Snoop's presence was the cause of this huge fight, and that event was in turn used to deny Snoop entry into the country.

A film of the incident tells a different story entirely. The tape shows Snoop entertaining a few young kids. It also showed Snoop being pushed a few times by police and he did nothing in retaliation.

Immigration judge, Nehar Bird, said there was no evidence that the rapper caused any public disturbance. He also stated many of Snoop's scheduled events where a positive thing for the community.

The Home Office hasn't decided whether or not if it will appeal the decision.

In other Snoop news, he has inked a production deal with Extreme Music, a subsidiary of Sony/ATV Music Publishing. He will be producing a multi-CD series titled The G Series, which will include music made by Snoop for commercial projects, TV and film.

“When we decided to produce an urban series, we wanted it to be not only major league but also 200% 'G,' with Snoop holding the reins,” said Russell Emanuel, co-CEO of Extreme Music.

Expect the first installment of The G Series to drop in the fall.
