Snoop Dogg’s latest video features a commercial for “Snoop Loops” and a clown that mocks Donald Trump. In the new video, Snoop literally takes aim at Donald Trump. In the promo for Lavender, which is Snoop’s remix of BadBadNotGood, Snoop finds himself transported to a universe filled with clowns. Comedian Michael Rapaport appears in the video as a victim of police violence, who is shot by a cop and the shooting is caught on video by a bystander. The video of the shooting is then uploaded to Clown Tube, reports BillBoard Magazine.
Last year, Snoop Dogg took part in a major rally held to bring Los Angeles cops and the black community together. In his new video, he attacks police brutality.
Lavender was directed by Jesse Wellens and James DeFina. The duo revealed that the concept for the video was partially inspired by the fatal police shooting of Philando Castle back in July of 2016, reports USA Today.
Snoop Dog speaks openly about Donald Trump. He told BillBoard Magazine that many things that anger him about the president are his Muslim ban, his being elected, police killing and getting away with it, people being sent to jail for 30 years for weed while non-blacks are profiting from it on the streets. He stated that there was a lot of “clown’ going on. Snoop Dogg added that conversations need to be locked down about the police and Donald Trump.
During the interview, the rapper said that nobody was dealing with the “real issues connected to this “clown as president. He added that too many of his fellow rappers were concentrated on releasing party music instead of taking a stand.
In the video, Snoop Dogg points a gun at a clown, Ronald Klump, who is dressed up as Donald Trump. In Lavender the rapper pulls the trigger and takes Klump out.
Snoop says that he created the video to be not overly controversial, but real. He wanted to give a voice to people who feel like they do not have a voice. He adds that no one is dealing with the real issues with “this clown as president,” reports FOX News.
Snoop Dogg shares that often when he puts something out there it is to fill a void. He believes that right now there is a giant void in the rap world because no one else is speaking out about “our clown of a president.”
