To which Snoop replied mentioning his alleged detention on his way to see the Pan African hero.
“I never met Nelson Mandela. Actually, when I was going to meet him, they took me to jail. I got stopped in London,” said Snoop.
Snoop says that he thinks that was a sabotage since he had to reschedule after he was locked up together with his crew.

” I look at it like that, when certain people are put on this earth they gotta pass the baton to the next man to run with, to run with the work. You know the one’s before us, they did the job, they did as much as they could now it’s our job to go as far as we can so when we pass off to your generation, y’all keep running, ” said Snoop Dog.
