Snoop Smokes Trump Lookalike In New Video

Snoop Dogg’s latest music video, a collaboration with Badbadnotgood on the “Lavender” remix, may raise a few eyebrows within the U.S. Secret Service.

The satirical, clown-themed video was directed by Jesse Wellens and James DeFina and features Michael Rapaport (you’ll know him when you see him) playing a hassled clown dad. Rapaport gets shot by a cop who is also a clown, and the shooting video goes viral after a clown on a skateboard films it on his phone and uploads it online. Rapaport’s character was only holding a toy gun, as was Tamir Rice, who was shot and killed by police officers in Cleveland.

Later the music stops and Snoop Dogg points a gun at the head of familiar-looking dude known as “Donald Klump,” who also appears to be in clown-face (considering the inspiration, it can be tough to tell). When Snoop pulls the trigger out pops a banner with the word “BANG” on it.

The whole video is wild, as was the video for the original version of “Lavender,” which doesn’t feature Snoop.

Snoop told Billboard of the video and collaboration, “The ban that this motherfucker tried to put up; him winning the presidency; police being able to kill motherfuckers and get away with it; people being in jail for weed for 20, 30 years and motherfuckkers 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 shit 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.”

This isn’t the first time that a rapper has talked about dead presidents. Killer Mike once rapped “I’m glad Reagan is Dead,” while back in the ’90s, Paris dedicated his song “Bush Killa” to the topic of, basically, killing President George Bush (the first one). And while he didn’t talk about killing him, Busta Rhymes did refer to Trump as “Agent Orange”–a chemical responsible for a catastrophic amounts of deaths and illnesses in Vietnam–during his performance with A Tribe Called Quest at this year’s Grammy’s.

Lastly, and highly noteworthy, is that there’s a moment towards the beginning of video where a box of Snoops Loops sits on a kitchen table. The video concludes with a commercial for the product, during which we hear the voice of Long Beach’s finest intoning, “Snoop Loops: Part of a balanced breakfast, BIATCH.”

Never change, Snoop.
