London (ANI): Hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg, who has been banned from the UK for three years, is reportedly seeking the help of his friends to get back in. He is said to have been trying to gain the support of heavyweight A-listers like Sir Paul McCartney, David Beckham, and Madonna.
"I love London and I'm desperate to come back. I've called David Beckham, Sir Paul McCartney, hell, I want to get the whole of the Beatles to help me get back in," the Mirror quoted him as saying.
The rapper, who made friends with Beckham after he moved to the United States to play for LA Galaxy, said that he wanted the former England captain to take up his matter with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown. He added: "I'm trying to get through to Madonna as well. I'd love them all to write to the Prime Minister to change his mind."
It was after Snoop was arrested for his involvement in a fracas at Heathrow in April 2006 that his visa woes began. He even had to cancel his joint mega-tour with P Diddy after being banned from entering the UK. However, the rapper now insists that he is a reformed man, and wants his friends to help him get back to the country.
He pleaded: "You got to help me too. London was one of the first places I came to when I first made it. The people are so warm and friendly and I need to be there for my creativity. So tell my fans I have not forgotten them and I have not given up hope. Shout out to them all especially the ladies."
