Snoop Dogg posed in front of towering cannabis plants in a Youtube tribute to a British swede grower. The singer is beginning his UK tour and was hoping to take home with him some British gardening tips.

Praising the gardening skills of 68-year-old Ian Neale, who broke the world record for his 38.8kg (six stone) swede, Snoop Dogg asked for some tips on growing giant “vegetables”.

Dressing in a blue Cardiff City football shirt – another tribute to Neale – Snoop asked the gardener if he’d like to stop by for a chat after the rapper’s gig in Wales.

"What up? Shout out to my homeboy Ian Neale in Cardiff for breaking the world's record for the biggest vegetable,” sais Snoop, real name Calvin Broadus.

"Man, I want to tell you something, when I do my show in Cardiff, I want you to come backstage and see me because I do vegetation myself and I want to know your secret so I can show you my vegetables and see if you can grow that into a real big vegetable.

"So Ian Neale from Cardiff, come see your boy Snoop Dogg, I've got two tickets for you when I get to town. Ya dig?"


Sadly for Snoop, Neale has declined the invitation as well as stating a preference for country and western.

Snoop Dogg is on tour in the UK this week, so anyone with any gardening tips should pop along.

The Doggfather’s British tour follows from a summer of sold out UK festival appearances. Snoop is promising a host of special guests and all the hits from his 19-year career.
