    Snoop Dogg poses for a selfie with a participant in a turkey giveaway in Inglewood on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2015.

    Inglewood, California, residents gobbled up their chance to meet Snoop Dogg and snap a selfie at a turkey giveaway a week before Thanksgiving.

    The rapper joined Inglewood Mayor James Butts and other city officials for the second annual Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway on Thursday.

    "This is a very big help for not only myself, but for about a thousand people," said Xiomara Payan.

    Over 1,500 turkeys were given out to families in need at the event held at The Forum.

    "Snoop Dogg took pictures with over 800 people at the event," Butts said. "We had a tented area for seniors to sit in, and the first thing he did was go over to take pictures with everyone there."

    Once he was done taking pictures, he made his way over to the line of over 800 people and took pictures with each of them.

    Butts first met the rapper at his newly constructed headquarters for 1500 or Nothin' in Inglewood last year. Snoop Dogg was looking to get involved in giving back to the community, so the mayor suggested the upcoming turkey giveaway.
