Snoop Dogg has joined the list of celebrities who are speaking out against the current president of the United States. On Sunday, the rapper released a new music video for BadBadNotGood’s track ‘Lavender’ and the focus was on current events in the United States and also the US president.
A character in the video was a Trump parody named Ronald Klump and the rapper can be seen in one of the scenes, pointing a fake gun at the clown-like figure impersonating Donald Trump, complete with an orange face and blonde hair.
“I feel like it’s a lot of people making cool records, having fun, partying, but nobody’s dealing with the real issue with this f**king clown as president, and the sh** that we dealing with out here, so I wanted to take time out to push pause on a party record and make one of these records for the time being.” He said to Billboard.
“Making a song that was not controversial but real — real to the voice of the people who don’t have a voice. It’s not like [Jesse] told me to make a record to express what I’m expressing on the song, but there were certain things that he said that brought that feeling, to make me want to express that when I was writing.”
“Snoop shouldn’t have done that. We’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country so anything like that is something people should be very careful about,” he told TMZ.
