Legendary rapper Snoop Dogg has again spoken out in support of gay marriage.

In an interview with the Huffington Post, the artist now known as Snoop Lion discussed his new documentary, a new upcoming album and his take on the Supreme Court hearings on California’s Prop. 8 legislation that bans gay marriage.

One of the founders of West-Coast hip-hop, Snoop said in his interview: ‘People can do what they want and as they please’.

‘Satisfy yourself accordingly. I have no issues with nobody, I live for me and I live my life doing what I do, so you should have the right to do whatever you want to do’.

In an interview last year with the Salt Lake Tribune, the California-born rapper said the world is ‘ready for an openly gay rapper’.

Snoop’s documentary is in theatres now and his new reggae album debuts  23 April.
