Snoop Dogg points gun at clown-faced Trump in music video

Snoop Dogg has never shied away from making political statements, and with Donald Trump currently President of the United States, the rapper has some thoughts he wants to share.

For the music video ‘Lavender,’ a collaboration with BADBADNOTGOOD featuring Kaytranada, Trump is depicted as a clown who - at the video’s climax - gets held up at gunpoint.

"The whole world is clownin’ around, and [Jesse Wellens, the director's] concept is so right on point with the art direction and the reality, because if you really look at some of these motherf--kers, they are clowns,” he told Billboard of the video which you can watch below.

During the interview, Snoop continued to lambast Trump, saying: ”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 p but if you got colour or ethnicity connected to your name, you’ve been wrongfully accused or locked up for it, and then you watching people not of colour position themselves to get millions and billions off of it.

“It’s a lot of clown s**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."
