“Snoop Lion 420 Festival” — a giant party being held in a Hollywood Hills mansion to celebrate all things cannab!s — started at 11:00 AM … but quickly crashed and burned thanks to a bunch of fuddy-duddy neighbors.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … multiple neighbors in the surrounding area complained about the noise levels and parking situation caused by hoards of weed-loving partygoers. The fact that the party didn’t have a permit didn’t help matters either.
Cops arrived and quickly shut it down, putting a kibosh on the all-night festivities.
Our sources say no one was cited and Snoop was not there.
We think it’s safe to say that Snoop will have no trouble finding another spot to celebrate 4/20.
Snoop Lion’s new album, Reincarnated, is in stores April 23.
Ray J stays finding himself in some drama. After the R&B crooner got into a verbal tiff with a woman claiming to be Suge Knight’s niece, he apparently got swung on by Bad Azz. The Snoop Dogg affiliated rapper called into Power 105.1 to explain why he tried to 2-piece Brandy’s little brother and alleged that Ray has a boyfriend (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Bad Azz admitted that he had only seen Ray J twice since 2005. However, he was still salty over a falling out he had with the “Wait A Minute” singer which he claims resulted in him getting jumped by Suge Knight and his goons. As for what went down last night at the Kodak Theater in LA: “To make a long story short, I seen him with Teairra Mari last night,” said Bad Azz. Yes, Ray J is still kicking it with Teairra Mari.
Bad Azz continued, “I seen him taking pictures and smiling so I sat back. So I ran outside, got my uncle who was with me, who I knew was gonna squad with me, didn’t tell not one other person on Earth. He didn’t get jumped. It wasn’t nothing like that. I told my uncle that was with me, I said ‘Unc, next time I see Ray J pass me I’m taking off. Light work.’ Soon as he walked by me, I threwa couple to the head. I respect him this one bit because he tried to fight back a little bit. But it wasn’t nothing. His homies helped him. Nobody got super mixed up. I did not knock him out cold. You know, he squabbed back, we got our little tussle on. I was cool, it was good worker morale to get your energy up on some grown man stuff. It was just to send a little message. Don’t ever put your hands on me and don’t sleep light.”
A Michigan company is joining forces with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony‘s, Stanley “Flesh-N-Bone” Howse, to put out a special strain of Mary Jane. The new product, courtesy of the Green Oasis dispensary, promises to be an adequate pain reliever. The greenery, named “Phifty Caliber Kush,” offers a “noticeable floral taste,” while killing customer’s pain (or getting them so lifted that they don’t care about their ailments). “We worked closely together to figure out what we wanted out of the medication,” said Anthony Butler, owner of Green Oasis. “It’s the best of the best.” Michael “Tony B.” Bernardi, business affairs executive at Flesh-N-Bone Global, expressed Howse’s full support for medical use of the plant, for qualified patients. “This is the first of someone I know who had the care and concern to do what’s right,” Butler said of Howse. In accordance with their collaboration, Butler will grow and distribute the drug, and seeds, from the strain. Butler got in contact with Howse—who he notes as both an “innovator” and “trailblazer”—through the owner of a clothing line dedicated to all things kush. He asserts that the partnership is the first of its kind, but Howse isn’t the only rapper to support the “green movement.” Snoop Dogg is practically an unofficial ambassador of the cause, a dedication which may only be rivaled by his smoking brethren, Wiz Khalifa.
DJ Skee and AXS TV / Skee.TV sat down with Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Lion) for an extended, in depth, and, at times, very personal chat. This uncut interview covers the evolution of his identity and music including his first comments after squashing his beef with Suge Knight, discussing the meaning behind his new album and documentary, Reincarnated, why he is speaking out about gun violence, putting Drake on his new single and his connection to gun violence (after a gun incident in Toronto), working on a reggae album with Diplo, and much more.
Just because he allegedly squashed beef with Snoop Dogg does not mean Suge Knight isn’t up to his old tricks. Not one but two bench warrants have been issued in California for the Death Row Records founder’s arrest.
TMZ got the scoop:
Suge was SUPPOSED to be in court Thursday … regarding two cases — one from 2011 and one from 2012 — when cops busted him driving on a suspended license … of all things. He was sentenced to 3 years unsupervised probation for one of the incidents. The other was still pending. But now, a rep for the L.A. County Superior Court tells TMZ … Suge was a NO-SHOW at a recent court date for both cases. We’re told the judge immediately issued two bench warrants — one for $5,000 and the other for $30,000 — which means cops can arrest the music exec on sight.
While the Death Row glory days are long gone, Knight’s current gig is managing troubled comedian Katt Williams. Missing court dates isn’t the best example to give his comedian client, who has had well documented issues with the authorities himself. Also, last year, Knight threatened to “beat the dog sh-t” out of Rick Ross since the Maybach Music Group rappers rolls with Sean “Diddy” Combs.
Yep, you read that right. Snoop Dogg—Snoop Lion if you want to get technical—was kicking it with Suge Knight in the club. Snoop posted a photo of him, the former Death Row Records HNIC and a couple of other guys, but doesn’t say exactly when or where the photo was taken. The “Deep Cover” rapper only included the caption, “N d club wit Suge miss those death row days!” As most Hip-Hop fans know, Suge (as well as Tupac) and Snoop had an infamous falling out with the Blood repping exec after the rapper left Death Row for No Limit. The only thing that could possibly be more head scratching than this photo is if Dr. Dre was in it himself, handing Suge a pair of new Beats By Dre headphones. While we’re on the topic of Snoop, he recently launched a video series called “Dime Of The Month.” The title makes it self-explanatory but just know it involves model chicks, bikinis, a random stripper pole and it’s a game show. Also, Don “Magic” Juan and Hits From The Street (the BET dude) are involved.
