Wyatt Earp, Dick Tracy, Batman, the gang from "Scooby Doo." All great crime stoppers! But they'll have to scoot over and make room for one more in their ranks. That's right, folks, I'm talking about Snoop Dogg.

Now a man like Snoop, who's made a career documenting various nefarious activities and his proficiency in said escapades, might have a fairly elastic definition of what is legal. Anybody who has seen his videos "Deep Cover" or "Nothin' But A G Thing" can attest to that. But apparently where Snoop draws the line is cybercrime. That's a no-no.

So the Doggfather teamed up with Norton (the AntiVirus people) to increase awareness of cybercrime, speaking about his own experiences with digital defilement in New York City yesterday. Adding a little hip-hop flavor to the proceedings, Snoop also announced his involvement with "Hack Is Wack," a rap battle contest where would-be M's rhyme about cybercrime. Woof.
