(AllHipHop News) Hip Hop legend Snoop Dogg found himself in the middle of a national controversy last month.
BADBADNOTGOOD’s “Lavender” music video featured Snoop firing a toy gun at a clown resembling Donald Trump.
The president then made Snoop one of his Twitter targets, and public reaction to the situation played out on social media as well as entertainment and political news outlets.
AllHipHop.com’s Chuck Creekmur sat down with Snoop to talk about his upcoming Neva Left album, Tupac Shakur, and of course Trump.
“I don’t know where we’re at as a country. It’s like [Trump] is running audibles at the line of scrimmage,” said Snoop. “What is his playbook? I’m sitting back watching like y’all. I don’t want to offend nobody and say nothing the wrong way, but at the same time I’m confused.”
Trump has reversed his position on several campaign promises (e.g. jailing Hillary Clinton, labeling China a currency manipulator) or has been unable to implement policies he advocated for during the campaign (e.g. the travel ban, repeal of Obamacare).
According to a CNBC analysis, an overwhelming number of the initiatives laid out in Trump’s first 100 days action plan, called the “Contract with the American Voter,” have yet to be achieved in the first 100 days of his presidency.
Snoop made it clear he will continue to speak out about Donald Trump and other issues that are important to him.
“I take my stance on who I am and what I’m here for. I am the voice of the people that can’t speak,” stated the Long Beach representative. “I move in a way that others can’t move, and some of them ain’t equip to do what I do, but I’m willing to do what needs to be done when the time is right.”
He continued, “Right now, I’m just sitting back watching the show just like you, trying to figure it out and make sure that God got his hands around us, making sure we’re alright and we’re able to press forward.”
