Damn! 24 years already?! Remember this???
Snoop Dogg took to social media today, to reflect on the 24th year anniversary of being acquitted of his first-degree murder charge. Snoop reposted a video to his Instagram page from @hiphopvideoworld_ of him sitting in the courtroom when the verdict was announced. The caption readsm “24 years ago today” followed by the blue heart and prayer emojis.
What seems like just yesterday, was actually back in 1993, when the rapper was tapped in connection to the shooting death of a rival gang member. Snoop’s bodyguard shot the man from a car while Snoop Dogg was in the passenger seat. Both men were hit with first-degree murder charges, but were both later acquitted when it was determined his bodyguard was acting in self-defense.
Peep the interview he did after he received the verdict:
