Longtime rapper Snoop Dogg appears in the music video of his recently released cover of BADBADNOTGOOD’s song “Lavender”, where the 45 year-old Southern California icon is seen pointing a gun at a figure representing President Donald Trump.
Towards the three minute mark of the four and a half minute long video, Calvin “Snoop Dogg” Broadus and his company surround a clown represented as President Trump, as the scene ends with Snoop Dogg firing a revolver at the president’s head.
In an attempt to further explain the purpose of the video, Snoop Dogg told Billboard:
The ban that this motherf–ker tried to put up; him winning the presidency; police being able to kill motherf–kers and get away with it; people being in jail for weed for 20, 30 years and motherf–kers that’s not black on the streets making money off of it — but if you got color or ethnicity connected to your name, you’ve been wrongfully accused or locked up for it, and then you watching people not of color position themselves to get millions and billions off of it. It’s a lot of clown sh-t going on that we could just sit and talk on the phone all day about, but it’s a few issues that we really wanted to lock into [for the video] like police, the president and just life in general.”
In the video, the same Trump figure is later seen wrapped in chains while being mocked by his detractors. The full video can be seen below:
