American rapper and actor, Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. (Snoop Dogg), has a new album that was released on October 27th titled, “Make America Crip Again.” The album title in itself mocks the President by playing off of Trump’s campaign slogan of “Make America Great Again.”
His newly released album appears to be primarily dedicated to bashing President Donald Trump’s character, views, and politics. Prior to the release of the album, Snoop made headlines for the single, “M.A.C.A.,” in which the sole purpose was to slam Trump.
In the single, Snoop expresses his support for former 49ers quarterback Colin 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.”
As previously reported, Snoop’s meaning behind the song references to the infamous Los Angeles gang the “Crips.” He stated, “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."
After Snoop faced backlash for the “M.A.C.A” single, the rapper came under fire again for his controversial album cover, which shows Trump’s dead body. On the cover, Snoop appears to be looking over a dead body underneath the American flag. A “Trump” tag is hanging from one of the toes, making it clear that the body is Trump, reported Breitbart News.
Snoop posted the cover on his Instagram, where many comments condemn Snoop’s decision for such artwork. People called it “disgraceful” and “disgusting.” Others on social media called to launch an investigation—like the Secret Service did with comedian Kathy Griffin for her photo of holding Trump’s decapitated head—or even jail time.
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. Ironically, the news about his album cover comes shortly after Snoop Dogg announced that he would be releasing a gospel album in the near future.
