Diddy, Snoop Announce Euro Tour; Snoop Has New Police Issues

Rap stars SEAN "DIDDY" COMBS and SNOOP DOGG, who were bitter rivals in a notorious feud between East and West Coast hip-hop in the 1990s, said on FRIDAY they had buried the hatchet once and for all. At a news conference in HELSINKI to launch a joint EUROPEAN tour, they said they had "moved on" from the days when members of the two music scenes clashed rather than collaborated.
"That was a time in history," COMBS told reporters ahead of the tour's opening concert. SNOOP DOGG's website lists 22 gigs, ending in NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND, on APRIL 2.
"We want to entertain, we want to make music, we want to make people feel good," said COMBS. "We ain't no gangsters. We are men first, we are fathers. Everybody has a past; everybody grows up, matures and moves on. And right now our mission is to make people dance and feel good."
Snoop Meets The Swedish Police
Before things could really get rolling, SNOOP DOGG has been arrested by STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN police for suspected narcotics use. SNOOP had done a show SUNDAY in STOCKHOLM. It is illegal to use drugs in SWEDEN, and if SNOOP DOGG's urine sample comes back positive for drug use he could face a fine.
