Snoop’s new best friend

Snoop dog reportedly met with a retired farmer Ian Neale from Cardiff recently after Snoop’s video message to the record-breaking swede grower was uploaded onto YouTube a few weeks ago where Snoop said:

‘What up? Shout out to my home boy Ian Neale in Cardiff for breaking the world record for the biggest vegetable.’

He continued: When I do my show in Cardiff, I want you to come backstage and see me because I do vegetation myself and I want to know your secret so I can show you my vegetables and see if you can grow that into a real big vegetable. Come see your boy Snoop Dogg, I’ve got two tickets for you when I get to town.’

Ian Neale (aged 64) from Newport, South Wales, recently entered the Guinness book of records for growing the worlds biggest swede, which weighed in at 85.5lbs (6st).

He accepted Snoop’s request (although stating that he was ‘more of a country-western fan’) to attend Snoop’s concert last Saturday in Cardiff where he met the successful rapper and discussed vegetation and growing techniques including Neale giving Snoop a packet of his secret ingredient, Rootgrow fertiliser.
