Snoop Dogg's UK ban lifted

Snoop Dogg has finally won the legal battle to gain entry into the UK, after the ruling was passed yesterday (4th March).

The West coast rapper was previously banned from Britain, following a violent outburst which involved members of his entourage inside London's Heathrow Airport, three years ago.

The ban was finalised when the rapper was convicted of a gun and marijuan possession charge shortly after the airport incident, which heightened after his entourage was denied entry to the British Airways V.I.P section at the airport.

Snoop's effort to get the ban overturned was short lived, when the decision was reversed in 2008. However; Snoop's lawyer's have recently appealed their case to the Asylum and immigration tribunal, who successfully ruled in the rappers favour, allowing him to re-enter the UK.

Snoop Dogg is a well respected rapper here in the UK, so I'm sure his fans (including myself) will welcome him with open arms!
