Snoop and Stanley Williams


More on our favorite criminal...

Since we've been keeping an eye on Stanley, I thought this piece from the LA Times would be interesting to share...

Apparently rapper Snoop Dogg showed up at a support rally for Williams outside San Quentin, joining over 1,000 attendees who believe that the killer-turned-children's-book-writer should be granted clemency. "At Saturday's rally, Snoop Dogg, who has spoken with Williams by telephone, told the crowd that he considered the inmate an inspirational figure. He said he was so moved by Williams' decision to renounce gangs that he also wants to spread the anti-violence message."

Did any of y'all see Mr. Dogg's last video, in which he crypt-walked with a blue handkerchief hanging out of his back pocket? Color of the Crips? And singing the lyrics, " I keep a blue flag hanging out my backside, But only on the left side, yeah that's the Crip side..."


Very nice, Snoop.

"Williams' "influence is really rubbing off on me, and I control lots of people on the streets, and what I do right, they do right," said the rapper, who wore a white T-shirt with "savetookie.org" in large black letters." "After watching "Redemption," the rapper said, he decided that he 'really needed to be contacting the kids.'"

Well, that's the way to do it. One of the 13-year-olds that I mentor has that very same Snoop video posted on her webpage. He's getting through to the kids, all right.
