Fréttablaðið reports that Snoop Dogg will be flying in from Germany in a private jet en route back to the US. His entourage is said to number thirty people.
Come summer, the inhabitants of “the land of ice and snow; where the midnight sun and the hot springs flow”, as Led Zeppelin described Iceland, can look forward to swaying to Snoop Dogg music and lyrics such as “I’m a Bad Boy, wit a lotta ho’s; drive my own cars, and wear my own clothes”.
