Snoop Lion - Snoop Lion Donating Funds To Slain Girl's Family

Snoop Lion has followed in fellow rapper The Game's footsteps and donated an undisclosed amount of money to the family of a six-year-old girl slain in California.

Tiana Ricks was shot and killed on Sunday (08Sep13), when two men opened fire on the family's Moreno Valley home.

Earlier this week (begs09Sep13), The Game contributed $10,000 (£6,660) to Ricks' grieving relatives for the funeral services, but the money was reportedly not enough to cover the bills, so Snoop has decided to step in and help.

A statement released by the hip-hop icon reads, "Little six-year-old girls are not supposed to die from a gunshot. But it keeps happening... too many tears are being shed, too many young lives are being cut short. We need to come together to change this.

"Beautiful Tiana loved to play the piano - she had a whole life ahead of her which should have been filled with love and music."
