Rapper-turned-music boss Snoop Dogg is eyeing his first big-name signing - former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher.
The hip-hop star was unveiled as the new creative chairman of EMI's Priority Records in September (09), and he is looking to snap up a rock band for the label's roster.
He has a number of acts in mind - and top of the list is Gallagher, following the Wonderwall hitmaker's departure from Oasis in August (09).
Snoop tells music magazine NME, "Would I sign Noel Gallagher? Hell yeah. Would I collaborate with him? Yeah, definitely. Set it up... I love his style. I'm definitely trying to find a rock band right now."
