Rap superstar Snoop Dogg has settled an outstanding tax bill dating back to 2008.
The "Drop It Like It's Hot" hitmaker, real name Calvin Broadus, Jr., was slapped with an invoice from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) after failing to hand over $476,338.
But the hip-hop icon is now in the clear - he paid the sum on September 15, according to The Detroit News.
Snoop Dogg isn't the only urban star to run into trouble with the IRS - rapper Lil Wayne, singer R. Kelly and music mogul Damon Dash have all recently been chased for payment by U.S. tax officials.
