Rapper Snoop Dogg attempted to hire out the entire European country of Liechtenstein as the backdrop for a new video. Snoop] is in Europe touring and wanted to use Liechtenstein, which has a population of about 35,000 residents, but the deal fell through because city officials did not have enough time to accommodate the world famous rappers’ request. “We’ve had requests for palaces and villages but never one to hire the whole country before,” Liechtenstein property agent Karl Schwaerzler told The Daily Mirror. “It would have been possible. (But Snoop Dogg’s management) did not give us enough time.” Tonight, Snoop Dogg will perform in Paris, France.
