I certainly hope this is not true. I've googled it but it appears nowhere else. Could these guys actually think that beating this fan was an entertaining addition to their act? I mean I know you get kinda bitter towards the end of a tour, but honey! This is ugly. Maybe it's time to realize that these "thugs" doing "gangsta rap" for labels like Murder, Inc really are criminal lowlifes and their ugly ways are seeping through their music into a whole generation. Snoop is such a cultural icon that he seems almost cuddly compared to some rappers. But I when ordinary people request Snoop's DROP IT LIKE IT'S HOT with"Can you play that song that goes" and they pop their mouth in that hook-y rhythm? But that song is not just about cute popping noise s with a few undeniably cute shizzle-type rhymes. In the 3rd verse he raps:

If you play me close, you're on a red beam
Oh you got a gun so you wanna pop back?
AK47 now nigga, stop that!
Cement shoes, now I'm on the move
You're family's crying, now you on the news
They can't find you, and now they miss you
Must I remind you I'm only here to twist you
Pistol whip you, dip you then flip you

It's about killing someone, in a song with 2 proud Crips gang references. So should the following (admittedly unsubstantiated) claims surprise us?

Loyal fan claims he was beaten onstage at Snoop Dogg concert


A Seattle-area hip-hop fan claims he was pummeled onstage this weekend at a concert with Snoop Dogg, The Game, Oowee and other artists.

Richard Monroe, 24, said he jumped onstage to dance at the encouragement of the rap artists when about a dozen people, including Snoop Dogg, hit and kicked him repeatedly. He alleges they ripped out his diamond earrings, poured alcohol on him, stole his watch and cell phone and took his wallet containing cash and identification.

Monroe said he was beaten and his belongings were stolen when he went onstage at Snoop Dogg's concert at the White River Amphitheatre.
Fans who watched the chaotic scene on stage Saturday had varying accounts. Some said they saw a man rush toward the artists from the backstage area before the fight broke out.

"The Game was throwing everything he had into it, and you could see Oowee moving back and forward and kicking the guy. I was kind of shocked," said 17-year-old Thatcher Marshall, who sat in the front section.

Marshall said the violence erupted during Snoop Dogg's song "Gin and Juice."

Administrators of White River Amphitheatre in Auburn, where the concert took place, acknowledged late yesterday that a fan had approached the artist on stage "unexpectedly" and had to be removed.

"The safety and security of our artists and our patrons is very important to us," the amphitheater's executive director, Lance Miller, said in the statement.

"We fully support the local authorities in their investigation of this incident."

Monroe spoke to a deputy from the King County Sheriff's Office Sunday evening, and the deputy took his statement.

The Kent man's eyes were swollen almost shut during an interview with the Seattle Post-Intelligencer Sunday evening. He was taken by ambulance to Auburn Regional Medical Center, suffering bruised ribs, a broken nose and a busted lip, according to his family. He said if he weren't so big -- he stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 250 pounds -- his injuries might have been worse.

Monroe, an aspiring model who calls himself "a loyal fan" of Snoop Dogg's, said that within seconds of getting onstage, the rap stars' bodyguards pounced on him and dragged him to the back of the stage.

"White River security guards didn't do anything. They didn't help," he said. "What are they there for?"

The scuffle was a chat topic on Snoop Dogg's Web site over the weekend. "We were right up front and watched that fool get the (expletive) kicked outta him ... there was blood and (expletive) everywhere, man," wrote one.

The concert was the season opener for the White River Amphitheatre, on the Muckleshoot reservation. Many fans, who paid from $25 to $46 for tickets, were disappointed when the show abruptly ended after the incident.

"I kept hoping it would just end, and they would finish up the concert," said Marshall.

Representatives of Snoop Dogg could not be reached yesterday, but one talent manager said last night that anyone who jumps onstage should know they will be removed.

Anthony Johnson, Monroe's cousin, and Monroe's girlfriend, Sonya Waters, attended the concert with him. Neither jumped onstage. "All they had to do is say you ain't supposed to be on the stage," said Johnson. "He was there for a minute with Snoop kickin' it."

Monroe's friends and family allege that Snoop Dogg also hit him in the head with a microphone during the melee.

Snoop Dogg, a fixture on MTV shows who has branched out into movies such as "Soul Plane," was at the venue on the tail end of his How The West Was One Tour, in which he headlines with California rapper The Game.

Snoop Dogg is on tour promoting his latest record, R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece.

Some fans yesterday questioned whether the onstage brawl might have been part of the rap stars' act.

Monroe said it was no act.

"They beat me like a slave," he said, holding an ice bag to his face. "It's horrible. They just went too far."

Outkast and Nas and Common (who actually apologized to gays for some lyrics on a previous album of his--Erykah Badu's good lovin' must've sweetened him up a little.) Hell, even Eminem is a good story-teller with diverse themes. (I know some gays will hate me for that.) But this crunk stuff--so boorish. Have you heard that Knuck If You Buck? So repetetive and infantile. When will rappers tire of brandishing their bling and mentioning Crystal and Courvoisier while bragging about their street cred? It's sooooo played.

But what else do some of them know? Admittedly, they're not ALL thugs...but many of them grew up listening to the same sort of crap on their boomboxes in the 80s. This is all they've aspired to be.

OK, now you've got the phony gold necklace on, and the baggy nylon pants. This is your Oz--is it everything you dreamed it would be, Tin Man?

Apparently not, or they wouldn't treat women so awfully...

Mistreating women and fake women (like me) and gays and each other! And even if it is all they know, gangsta rap is so prevalent as popular entertainment that it's ugly attitudes spread to many who have known and should know better. I heard some young white kid praising 25 Cent for taking a bullet. Is getting shot praiseworthy or foolhardy? Or was it another publicity stunt like his "beef" with The Game? It is all so fucked up.
