Hip hop megastar Snoop Dogg was held by immigration personnel in Norway at the weekend for having too much cash.

The uber-rich rap legend, whose hits include Snoop's Upside Your Head and Drop It Like Its Hot, was in Norway to perform at the Spektrum Arena, when he was pulled by officials for flashing way too much cash than they are used to seeing.

Taking to Twitter, Snoop let his feelings be known in typical unabashed fashion.

"At the Norway Border right now being sweated for having 2much money!! Norway standup 4 the biggdogg the border guys are cool but they talking about taking my $$!" he tweeted.

"That ain't rite!! Norway stand up for the biggdogg!! They makn me late for this adidas instore autograph signing."

After a two hour delay, with the rapper explaining how things go down in the US and the rap game, Snoop eventually made it to the store, where he was greeted by a swarm of fans.

"Shout out to all 600 fans in Oslo who waited all day at the adidas instore signing," he said.
