Snoop Dogg surprised a British nightclub owner by mistakenly leaving close to $520,000 (£400,000) in funds driving at his venue.
George Sloan booked the rapper to perform at his Timepiece club in Exeter, England again in August 2014, as element of a vacation that also took him to the Boardmasters surfing, skating, and music festival in nearby Newquay.
Even though driving house from the gig George had a mobile phone contact from Snoop’s group saying they’d still left a bag behind in the DJ booth – which the club operator afterwards found to consist of his look fees.
„Now, Snoop Dogg had performed the night time just before at Boardmasters in Newquay as element of a mini tour we might organised and he generally insisted that he’s paid in cash,“ George told DevonLive.com.
„So there was this bag which we just assumed had the normal in it, but what we did not realise was that it had all the money he experienced been paid from the situations he had played so significantly. I reckon there ought to have been about three to four hundred thousand lbs . in there. I could have retired that night time!.“
Even so, he returned the cash to the hip-hop legend, whom he described as „charming“ and undemanding.
„Snoop was the most laid back again individual I feel I have ever fulfilled,“ the club chief spelled out. „I spent about 20 minutes with him and all I bought was ‚cool‘. The night was ‚cool‘, the club was ‚cool‘, the group was ‚cool‘. He posed for images and signed autographs. There was nothing outrageous on his rider, just a precise kind of gin. He was very charming.“
As a thank you soon after the cash was retrieved, Snoop even invited the surprised nightclub operator to his private celebration at the Cannes Movie Competition. George declined, nonetheless, as his wife wasn’t eager on the notion of him revelling with the rapper on the French Riviera.
