Snoop Dogg called out Donald Trump in a new rap song released Thursday which mocks the president’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.
“The president says he wants to make America great again. Fuck that shit. We going to make America Crip again,”the 46-year-old rapper, born Calvin Cordozar Broadus, explained in one of the lines from his new rap titled “M.A.C.A (Make America Crip Again).” (RELATED: Marco Rubio Slams Snoop Dogg About His Video Shooting Trump)
“Don’t you look strange having all that power? But you won’t make change,” Snoop added, taking a dig at Trump, along with another line that slam’s the president’s use of Twitter to express his thoughts.
“It’s not a statement or a political act. It’s just good music,” the rapper told Rolling Stone magazine in a statement about the 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.'”
“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 added. “A lot of people glorify the gang-banging and violence but forget that in the beginning, the Crips’ main and sole purpose was to be the reflection of the Black Panthers. They looked after kids, provided after-school activities, fed them and stepped in as role models and father figures.”
“M.A.C.A” comes out October 27th.
