Rap star Snoop Dogg was faced with fear and distrust by parents of children on the same football team as his son CORDE.

The rapper was keen to become involved with the running of the peewee football team but the reactions of the other parents meant it took him a while to convince them he wasn't a badboy.

He says, "I think parents put up a wall in the beginning and was like, 'We don't want him around our kids'. They didn't know too much about me.

"Once they got to see how I was around my kid and their kids as well as all the things I did from the bottom of my heart for the community, they had to welcome me in because I'm a respectable person."
