Fans of hip hop would know that Snoop Dogg isn’t a stranger to controversy and speaking his mind.
So, it shouldn't be a surprise to some that the Drop it like its hot rapper is currently stirring up some controversy recently.
The Californian rapper’s remix of a song by a Canadian group named BadBadNotGood is triggering reactions for it’s political and satirical music video.
Snoop Dogg released a music video for the remix of the song Lavender, to which he offers some foul-mouthed views on the current predicament of the race relations in the U.S. police brutality against black people, and the Presidency of Donald Trump.
PrankvsPrank YouTuber Jesse Wellens co-directed the video, which features actor, filmmaker and hip hop fan Michael Rapaport who is pulled over and shot by a police officer during a traffic stop, whilst the incident is filmed, reminiscent of the death of Philando Castile.
Also in the video, we see an orange-faced, Trump-like clown figure, named ‘Ronald Klump’ giving a tirade during a televised press conference, which then follows ‘Klump’ shot at by Snoop Doog, with a fake gun. The gun releases a flag with the word ‘BANG’.
Former Trump Republican campaign rival Marco Rubio, was one notable person who commented on the video.
“Snoop shouldn’t have done that,” the Florida Senate told TMZ.
“We’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is something people should be really careful about,” Rubio mentioned.
“If the wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea, you could have a real problem.” He added.
Snoop Dogg however told Billboard magazine that the intention was “making a song that was not controversial but real, real to the voice of the people who don’t have a voice,”
The rapper also added that he is not expecting a response for the video.
“I don’t ever expect or look for a reaction. I just put it out because I feel like it’s something that’s missing. Any time I drop something, I’m trying to fill in a void,” He mentioned.
"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 shit 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."
Snoop Dogg may not be expecting or looking for a reaction, but Trump has already seen the video and he isn't too happy!
