Another hip-hop artist took a shot at President Donald Trump in a newly released song in late October of 2017. The consistent hatred for Trump from the Hollywood and music industry fails to come to an end.
American rapper and actor, Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. (Snoop Dogg), has a new album coming out, which the title in itself spins off Trump’s campaign slogan of “Make America Great Again.” His album titled, “Make America Crip Again” contains the single M.A.C.A., slamming the president and his beliefs, while referring to the “Crip” gang of LA.
In the new single, Snoop expresses his support for Kaepernick in regards to the national anthem protesting controversy, implies Trump is a racist, and refers to Trump’s tweeting in a negative light. He rapped, "The President said he wants to make America great again. F--- that s---, we gonna make America Crip again.”
According to CNN, Snoop further explained the meaning behind his song, "Certain people feel like we should make America 'great again,' but that time they're referring to always takes me back to separation and segregation, so I'd rather Make America Crip Again. What I mean by that is, in my lifetime, that's when young black men in impoverished areas organized to help their communities and to take care of their own because society basically left them for dead.”
He continued, "A lot of people glorify the gang banging and violence but forget that in the beginning, the Crip's main and sole purpose was to be the reflection of the Black Panthers [a 1960s African-American party that fought police brutality]. They looked after kids, provided after-school activities, fed them and stepped in as role models and father figures."
The actual song “Make America Crip Again” will not be played on Faith Family America due to profane language. Thank you for your understanding.
This is not the first time that Snoop Dogg has taken a shot at President Trump. Earlier this year, the hip-hop artist released a music video where he shot a clown that clearly resembled Trump. The video stirred a great controversy in which people even considered it as an assassination threat.
Snoop is not the only one in the industry to bash Trump since he became the 45th President of the United States. Recently, award-winning rapper Eminem released a freestyle rap, which solely focused on slamming the president. Mainstream media called Eminem’s cruel song the “fiercest and most exhaustive” target against Trump in the music industry thus far.
Ironically, Snoop Dogg announced last month that he was planning to release a Gospel album.
