Snoop Dogg heard some bagpipes when he lands in Scotland.

Snoop Dogg busted some moves while a bagpipe player played for him when he landed in Glasgow, Scotland. He landed in the country for his European tour when he was given a proper Scottish welcome on the tarmac. They got somebody to play the bagpipes and do a rendition of "Still D.R.E." in a kilt for the rapper. Snoop Dogg was all for it. After dancing to the song for a bit, gave the bagpipe player a thumbs-up before entering a van. Online reception to the song was just as positive as Snoop Dogg's was.

According to Glasgow Live, the bagpiper, named Ross Ainsley, was only given a single day to prepare. He explained that he found "Still D.R.E." to be a great pipe piece and called the experience "very cool". Ainsley has been described as “one of the most fluid, naturally-gifted and exciting pipers of the 21st century." He is originally from Bridge Of Earn in Perthshire. Earlier this week, he was in Grantown working on his next solo album. Next Friday, he will be in the village of Croy for the music event Croy Live.

Snoop Dogg Gets Down With Some Bagpipes

Snoop Dogg was in Scotland for his European tour that was originally supposed to go down in 2020. Then Covid happened and he rescheduled it to 2022. However, he had to cancel the tour at the last minute for “unforeseen scheduling conflicts including family obligations and upcoming tv and film projects.” He had never explained what those unforeseen conflicts were. However, they were not too major since he was still able to do his American tour later that year. This current tour is to make up for the cancellation he had to do. Snoop Dogg is set to have a concert in Denmark tonight, before going to London's O2 Arena on March 21, and Paris's Accor arena on the 25th.

Snoop Dogg and Scotland have had a close relationship for years, ever since he became a fan of Glasgow's Celtics soccer club. He has even admitted that Glasgow is one of his favorite cities in Europe. This love came in 2005 when he and his entourage were given free Celtic shirts by DJ Big Al. In exchange, Snoop recorded some lines for the DJ's mixtape.
