With a user name like "Front Chi Verga", I take it you're a typical Mexican machista who's strongly racist against black people like most other Mexican men. Are you jealous cuz he got out of the hood, yet you can't seem to make it outta the war zone in Juarez? What an interesting and irrational way to express your envy.

I've been part of the Hip-hop culture for over 10 years and I tip my hat to Snoop for contributing to the music the way he knows how, although the gangsta rap sub-genre of Hip-hop music is not my preferred style. It's not where I came from and it's not how I grew up, and clearly gangsta rap is not for the faint of heart. Despite that, D-o-double-g deserves his credit where credit is due.

Wow all this hate for Snoop? What has he done to any of you? He's a self-made entrepreneur that made it out of the "hood."

He has classic songs known worldwide and is an icon and positive influence to many. Those spouting that he's a ganster must still be wearing Member's Only jackets. He's a business owner nowadays. Get a life and troll elsewhere.

You're obviously not a fan of his music but there's no disputing many of his songs will still be played long after you and I are gone.

I don't advocate his lifestyle or his innocence regarding that killing more than a decade ago but he seems to be doing well these days.

BTW, wasn't Great White involved in the death of a hundred people? Yes, I know very different circumstances but people died in their name. I'm sure there are still people that enjoy their music however.

The one hundred or so people that died in that fire died because the manager of the bar had foam sound deadeners on the walls that caught fire. That foam was installed without the fire marshalls approval. That fact was'nt known to the pyrotechnician or road manager. And about his music, i'm a casual fan of a few of his song's that does'nt change the fact that snoop is a murderer
