First let’s clear the air: Snoop Dogg now goes by Snoop Lion. His self-reinvention, the result of his recent adoption of Rastafari and reggae music, is chronicled in the appropriately titled documentary Reincarnation, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. At the press conference for that film, the reborn rapper behind “Gin and Juice” took the opportunity to voice his eloquent support for President Obama.
“Let me begin, Obama for four more years, man,” Snoop said. “Bush f—-d up for eight years, so, I mean, you gotta at least give [Obama] eight years. He cleaned half the s–t up in four years, realistically. It ain’t like y’all gave him a clean house. Y’all gave him a house where the TV didn’t work, the toilet was stuffed up – everything was wrong with the house.”
The rest of Snoop’s enlightened political commentary touched on Osama bin Laden–“He knocked down our most hated, the most wanted, the one who had our terror on orange or red or whatever color it was on – he went and found him, the one Bush couldn’t seem to find, the one who seemed to fly away in the dead of night and all that”–and Bill Clinton’s speech at the DNC–“You heard what Clinton said. You loved Clinton, didn’t you?”
Snoops remarks present a stark contrast to Nicki Minaj’s momentous support for Mitt Romney. But President Obama, for his part, doesn’t really care about Nicki’s statement, and odds are he respond to this endorsement from Snoop.
