Snoop Dogg doesn’t seem to be having much luck when it comes to European authorities. After his bad run in with Sweden police, who he’s calling out for racial profiling, it looks like the rapper now has to worry about the Italian officers.
Our favorite rapper decided he wanted to try board a plane with about $422k in cash but he was stopped in his tracks at the Lamezia Terme airport in Calabria. According to European law, Snoop was way above limited $11k that can go unreported by travelers, meaning they had no choice but to confiscate his cash.
The financial authorities confirmed information that was reported by ANSA, and Italian news agency, that half of the rapper’s cash was actually impounded under the Italian anti-money laundering codes. Usually, in cases like these the balance is returned to the owner, after cash is taken out for fines.
Snoop is scheduled to play at Kendal Calling Festival in England tonight, so hopefully he doesn’t let this get him down.
