Rapper Snoop Dogg is playing peacemaker in his latest video VATO, in a bid to bring warring California gangs together. The former gangbanger portrays a black leader trying to make peace with a Mexican godfather, played by Cypress Hill star BREAL, in the new promo - and Snoop hopes real thugs in southern California get the message. He says, "There's a lot of negativity in southern California with the blacks and the Mexicans, so what I wanted to do was put a video together to show some love and bring us together. "Music brings everybody together, so that's what I'm doing - using my music as a peaceful tool right now."
