Snoop’s Immigration Battle
The authorities are challenging the rappers right to come to the UK
Snoop Dogg is battling to get into the UK after the government challenged whether he should be allowed into the country.
The rapper has previously been banned from our fair isle because of a previous affray charge in 2006 and his criminal record. Snoop then appealed against the ruling and had it overturned at the beginning of 2008.
But the UK Border Agency is now set to challenge tha Dogg's right to enter the country at a legal hearing today.
Snoop had to cancel the UK leg of a joint tour with P.Diddy in 2007 when immigration officials turned him away.
His new album Ego Trippin entered the charts at number 23 after being released last monday.
