Snoop Joins Nation of Islam

Elijah Muhammad had Malcolm X as a disciple, now Farrakhan has... Snoop Dogg? The constantly red-eyed rapper appeared—wearing sunglasses—at the Nation of Islam's Saviours' Day convention and spoke to the attendees, praising Minister Farrakhan and promising to spread a positive message to his fellow artists. When questioned by reporters, Snoop Dogg said he was a member of the Nation of Islam and "an advocate for peace." Other big names from the world of hip-hop at the convention included T.I., who appeared via video and old-schooler Doug E. Fresh, who did not address the audience.
