LATEST: Hip-hop star SNOOP DOGG paid special tribute to STANLEY 'TOOKIE' WILLIAMS at the executed former gang leader's Los Angeles funeral yesterday (20DEC05).

Over 1,500 supporters of the Crips founder-turned-peace activist attended the funeral, which was watched on a large TV set by the overflow of mourners.

Snoop Dogg recited a poem titled UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN at the service, according to AllHipHop.com.

Williams himself left a tape recorded message, urging those present to spread a positive message.

He said on the tape, "Teach them how to avoid our destructive footsteps. Teach them to strive for higher education. Teach them to promote peace and teach them to focus on rebuilding the neighbourhoods that you, others and I helped to destroy."

Williams, 51, was convicted for the 1979 murder of four people during a Los Angeles robbery. He was executed by lethal injection on 13 December (05), hours after California Governor ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER denied his plea for clemency.

In line with his last wish, Williams' ashes will be scattered in South Africa.
