Rapper has met the teenage singer

Snoop Dogg has come out as an unlikely Justin Bieber fan.

The pair are currently locked in a race to top the US album chart with their latest records.

Snoop, real name Cordozar Calvin Broadus, says he’ll have no hard feelings if Justin, 16, wins.

‘I don’t have no problem with that,’ the 38-year-old tells MTV News. ‘That’s what the music industry was made on.

‘I actually had a chance to meet the guy. He’s kind of cool.

‘I don’t really have a problem with the teenyboppers or whatnot.

‘Once upon a time, I was a young teenager coming into the game, driving ’em crazy and whatnot.’
