Snoop Dogg's rant after finally being released by policeSnoop Dogg has beef with the country of Sweden, and says he'll never be back after Swedish cops pulled him over "for nothing."

After a concert in Uppsala, Snoop Dogg was pulled over under suspicion of driving under the influence. "He was arrested and taken to the police station to take a urine test," Daniel Nilsson, a local police spokesman told The Guardian. Snoop, though, thinks it was a clear case of racial profiling, and posted a series of videos on his personal Instagram account during the whole ordeal. One video was even recorded from the back of the police car.

As for the charge of racial discrimination, a spokesman for the police told TMZ, "We don't work like that in Sweden."

Snoop was later released, and posted a video saying he'd never be going back to Sweden and said the police found nothing on him. "Like Minister [Louis] Farrakhan said, better to be searched and not found with [anything] than not to be searched at all."

Police say they will get the test results in two weeks.
