With his ban lifted, the rap icon is taking a liking to the nation.
Snoop Dogg has been spending quite a bit of time in the U.K. lately. Last year, a 2007 ban that prevented him from entering the country because of his involvement in an airport scuffle was finally lifted, and now the Doggfather has found a new appreciation for life over the pond.
In a new interview with the U.K. tabloid The Sun, Snoop seemed to be getting along quite swimmingly with his new friends in the country, and revealed his hopes to record nine more albums.
"I'm just so happy they've finally lifted that thing, whatever was on me. Now I'm in—I ain't leaving. I'm so honored to be here. I'm just so tootin' and bootin' to be here, baby," Snoop said. "I'm just a fun guy and I'm glad they see that and they let me prove myself and be peaceful and continue to do my shows."
Snoop, who is a self-proclaimed big fan of the royal family, said he would like to write a special song for Prince William and his new bride, Kate Middleton.
"Kate and Wills, oh wow, what a couple. They need to make some babies soon to give the Queen some great grandkids. They're going to be beautiful babies. Perhaps I'll record them their own baby-making music," he said.
The "Sensual Seduction" singer also hopes for a chance to meet the Queen.
"If I ever got to Buckingham Palace, oh my, I'd be like, 'Well hello, Queen ma, pleased to meet you,'" he said. "I'd have a suit so fly, it would be the flyest suit you'd ever seen and a fly hat to go with it, because I know the good lady likes wearing hats. I heard she likes yellow so I'd make it yellow."
Snoop, always in good spirits and reportedly behind a thick cloud of smoke, said he hoped to extend his already legendary career for nine more albums. That would put him at an even 20.
"I'll cut it out after 20. Spirit keeps me going. Whether it's the people's spirit, my spirit or the holy spirit, I'm just driven by that," he said.
