Snoop Dogg, no stranger to controversy, is making news again, for killing the president. I’m Bryan Leonard, this is SOUNDEFTV
Snoop Dogg is coming under fire for an image of him shooting a lookalike president in clown face at close range. After squeezing the trigger a bang flag came out, not a bullet, a flag. So why is this such a big deal?
First off, let me throw the snoop dogs facts out so you won’t have to in the comments. Yes, he smokes weed, yes, he’s on a show with Martha Stewart, yes, he was found not guilty of murder, & yes, he is the most recognizable Rapper worldwide. Now here’s something that people often forget, he’s a RAPPER!! Last time I checked, he was still a rapper with an opinion & freedom of speech. Just because he is beloved by old white women & everyone of all races changes nothing. There have been thousands of rappers over the last few years denouncing Donald Trump in videos, through song, everything you can think of. So why is it such a big deal when Snoop Does it.
Because you forgot who he was. The same people disgusted at Calvin Broadus are the same people who wanted Beyoncé banned after her pro black performance at the Super bowl halftime show last yr. Do you remember when police boycotted Beyoncé, refusing to work her concert security. Yup, these are the same people. Those mad at Snoop are the same people who never for some reason acknowledge the Obama mannequin hangings, that were nationwide. Or Jan Brewer putting her finger in his face, or his citizenship questioned, or him family being called monkeys. Case in point people hated Obama simply for his skin color, people hate Trump well, for everything but that.
Snoop is a rapper, one of the greatest even, him & Dr. Dre shot & killed a fake Eazy E in a music video, you weren’t mad? Snoop kicked over buildings in New York, you weren’t mad, he even roasted Trump on Comedy Central, you weren’t mad, so why you mad now?
Just because he’s beloved, bakes cookies with Martha Stewart & kisses babies you forgot he’s a rapper. He didn’t. You did. He’s not a politician & owes you no reason to be politically correct. The only truth he owes is to himself. So as a musician, & yes rappers are musicians, (some lol) he displays his opinion through music & video.
We must stop putting musicians & entertainers at a higher standard, especially more than politicians.
