Rapper Snoop Dogg has hit out at the dangerous reputation the urban genre has acquired, insisting you're just as likely to get hurt playing sports.

The DROP IT LIKE IT'S HOT star refuses to let stories of gang-related shootings and a series of rap star murders strike fear into him, because he's adamant all professions carry risks.

He says, "Is rap dangerous? To a certain level, yes, but then so is football, basketball, politics, the military. Rap is no more dangerous than that, so don't be fooled.

"I don't wake up scared in the morning, no. Of course I don't."
