Russell Crowe Has Snoops Back

Thanks to Academy Award winning actor Russell Crowe, Snoop Dogg was granted a visa to travel on the Smoked Out Tour with Ice Cube and Bone Thugs in Harmony. Crowe wrote a letter to Australia's Minister of Immigration urging the country to allow Snoop to participate in next month's tour.

I have known Snoop Dogg for 3 years…[he] poses no threat to Australia or to any individual in this country; he has toured here three times before without incident and there are no reasons to assume this tour will be anything but the positive experience the last three have been,” Crowe wrote. “Snoop has built a stellar reputation with promoters and audiences worldwide.Snoop has used his celebrity in many positive ways," he continued. "I would like to bring to your attention a very significant contribution he has made in the City of Los Angeles where he started and continues to operate a Youth Football League for 8 to 10 year olds, put in place so that disadvantaged kids could take part in organized team sports. It has been very successful, even to the point it has been examined by the NFL as they look to replicate the enthusiasm and engagement that kids have with this program.
