The boss of an Exeter nightclub has claimed that Snoop Dogg once accidentally left a bag containing between £300,000-400,000 in cash at the club after performing there.
George Sloan, the co-owner of Timepiece club in the Devon city, has looked back at some of the more memorable moments from his time looking after the much-loved venue in a new interview.
Speaking to Devon Live, Sloan recalled one night in August 2014 when Snoop played an unlikely gig at the club. “Snoop was the most laidback person I think I have ever met,” he said. “I spent about 20 minutes with him and all I got was ‘cool’. The evening was ‘cool’, the club was ‘cool’, the crowd was ‘cool’.”
“He posed for photographs and signed autographs. There was nothing outrageous on his rider, just a specific type of gin. He was very charming.” You can see clips of Snoop’s appearance at the club below.
Sloan then recalled how he was contacted by a member of Snoop’s entourage while he was driving home later that night. Apparently the rapper and his team were staying at a £50-a-night Travelodge on the outskirts of Exeter, and had forgotten an important bag.
“They said: ‘We’ve left a large rucksack upstairs behind the DJ box, could we come and pick it up,'” Sloan said he was told by a member of the rapper’s team.
“I said I’d left for the night but I’d see if I could arrange for someone to go and have a look. Now, Snoop Dogg had played the night before at Boardmasters in Newquay as part of a mini tour we’d organised and he usually insisted that he’s paid in cash.
“So there was this bag, which we just assumed had the usual in it, but what we didn’t realise was that it had all the money he had been paid from the events he had played so far. I reckon there must have been around £3-400,000 in there. I could have retired that night!”
Back in January, Snoop Dogg urged government workers who were affected by the prolonged government shutdown not to vote for Donald Trump in next year’s presidential election.
