The United Kingdom can now rejoice as judges rule to overturn the verdict that denied Snoop Dogg entry to the country three years earlier.

The veteran West Coast rapper incurred the wrath of immigration officials in 2006 when he was arrested following a fracas at London’s Heathrow Airport.

In 2007 he was denied entry into the country, when authorities argued that his previous convictions for drugs and firearms offenses made him a threat. Ultimately the ban was lifted in 2008, but government officials took the case to the Court of Appeal, where it was decided the judge who reversed the ruling may have “misinterpreted the test of exclusion.”

Broadus who refused to give in, took the case to a U.K. Asylum and Immigration Tribunal on Friday (February 26), as the star’s lawyers urged officials to take into consideration his work as a high-school football coach and appearances on family-friendly TV shows including “The View” and his “Father Hood” reality series.

Finally, the approach worked in Snoop’s favor as two senior immigration judges decided border authorities were wrong to deny the star entry.

In addition to celebrating the reversal of his immigration case, Snoop is also celebrating the upcoming release of his film Malice N’ Wonderland, titled after his tenth album. Although the album was released in December, fans will not be disappointed because in addition to the movie, they will receive a follow up album entitled More Malice which features the remix to the club banger “I Wanna Rock (Kings Mix)” featuring Jay Z.

Snoop feat. Lady Of Rage & Lil Kim – “I Wanna Rock (Queens Mix)”

Not to leave the ladies out, Snoop has teamed up with Lil’ Kim and even brought back the Lady of Rage to record the prequel to the “I Wanna Rock (Kings Mix)”, although the track does not appear on the album, the internet is buzzing about the anticipated release of “I Wanna Rock (Queens Mix)”

With the way Rage was spitting on this track, hopefully she decides to bless fans with the album that we have been waiting for, but only time will tell.

Malice in Wonderland the movie and the album will both be in stores March 23.
