Snoop Dogg Will Perform In Australia Despite Petition

West Coast Hip Hop legend and pop culture icon Snoop Dogg will be able to tour in Australia this month.

Billboard reports Snoop was granted a work permit despite a women’s organization’s petition calling for him to be denied entry into the country on the grounds that his lyrics “glorify violence against women.”

This is not the first time the group known as Collective Shout has taken aim at a rap artist visiting Australia.

In June of 2013, the organization attempted to get Tyler, The Creator’s visa revoked claiming he promoted “hate speech” against women.

Other Hip Hop performers have had difficulty entering the country as well. 2 Chainz was denied entry because of a pending drug charges in the States.

With the clearance, Snoop will now be able to perform his co-headlining set at the Big Day Out Festival beginning on January 19th in Gold Coast.

The traveling concert event will also play in Melbourne on the 24th, Sydney on the 26th, Adelaide on the 31st, and Perth on February 1st.
