Snoop Dogg is planning to treat David Beckham to a ''big'' night out in Las Vegas to celebrate his 40th birthday.

The 'Young, Wild and Free' hitmaker wants to give the former footballer - who turns 40 on May 2 - a night to remember in Sin City, but the hunk doesn't have to worry about telling his wife Victoria Beckham about the trip as the rapper is already planning to speak to her.

He said: ''My boy David hits the big 4-0 this year and you know, we got to do something big to celebrate.

''It's gotta be Vegas, there ain't nowhere else it can be.

''You know what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

''He ain't got to worry about Victoria, I will speak with her and explain when a man turns 40 he needs to go away with his boys.''

But if David - who has children Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 12, Cruz, 10, and three-year-old Harper with the fashion designer - is hoping to simply share a few quiet drinks with the star then he is mistaken as the 43-year-old rapper wants the pair to roll back the years and drop it like it's hot in style.

He is quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying: ''40 is nothing these days. We'll show we can go harder than the kids.''

Snoop has a great record when it comes to throwing birthday parties as just last month he put on a 'Coming to America'-themed birthday bash for his 18-year-old son Cordell Broadus, which featured a throne and rose petals in a nod to Eddie Murphy's 1988 movie.
