Snoop Dogg Donates to Nation of Islam

Wonder how Snoop Dogg spends his weekends? Well his activities this past Sunday may come as a surprise!

Snoop spent the day at the Nation of Islam’s annual Savior’s Day Convention, and even donated $1000 to the organization! Who knew he was so religious?

Snoop praised the leader of the event, Minister Louis Farrakhan, and said as the “leader of the hip-hop community” he will always seek him out. He also said he was committed to sharing the information he learned with fellow hip-hop artists. Yeah, we’re sure that’s high on their lists!

Snoop told reporters, "When you get a speech from Minister Farrakhan it's about a mirror, it's about looking at yourself. It's about seeing yourself and what you can do to better the situation ... We're doing a lot of wrongs among ourselves that need correcting."

So the question is, is Snoop converting to become a member of the Nation of Islam? You may be surprised to hear that he’s already a member!

Snoop says, "I'm an advocate for peace. I've been in the peace movement ever since I've been making music. My whole thing is not about really trying to push my thing on you. It's just about the way I live, and I live how I'm supposed to live as far as doing what's right and representing what's right. That's why I was here today."

Maybe the theme yesterday was all about hip-hop, because Snoop was the only artist there. Doug E. Fresh also attended the convention, and T.I. even appeared via video to tell the followers that education is the key to success.

Kind of odd coming from someone who is heading off to prison in a couple weeks, but his message was pretty solid.
