Washington, March 3 (ANI): Snoop Dogg witnessed the Nation of Islam convention at an annual event in Rosemont, Illinois on March 1.

The rapper, born as Calvin Broadus, was spotted applauding minister Louis Farrakhans speech during the Saviours” Day meeting.

The 37-year-old showered praises on Farrakhan along with inviting others to join the movement.

“When you get a speech from Minister Farrakhan it’’s about a mirror, it’’s about looking at yourself, Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

It’’s about seeing yourself and what you can do to better the situation… We”re doing a lot of wrongs among ourselves that need correcting,” he added.

On being questioned if he would consider converting to the Nation of Islam, he added: “I”m already in the Nation, that’’s why I”m here. I”m an advocate for peace. I”ve been in the peace movement ever since I”ve been making music.

“My whole thing is not about really trying to push my thing on you. It’’s just about the way I live, and I live how I”m supposed to live as far as doing what’’s right and representing what’’s right. That’’s why I was here today.” (ANI)
