Snoop Dogg has launched what gave the impression to be a Donald Trump-dissing alternate cowl to his upcoming album Make America Crip Again, and it’s elevating fairly a ruckus with conservative varieties, like Fox News.
Snoop posted the duvet — which pays homage to fellow Los Angeles gangsta rap veteran Ice Cube’s 1991 sophomore album Death Certificate — to Instagram then deleted it after a wave of backlash from Trump supporters within the media. The cowl is a near-exact recreation of Cube’s traditional cowl, however for the toe tag on the corpse within the morgue, which now reads “Trump” as an alternative of “Uncle Sam.”
The rap elder statesman is not any stranger to controversy; his music and persona have all the time pushed buttons, even again in 1992, when he launched the police-threatening title observe to the movie Deep Cover — his first-ever look on file. Since then, he’s ruffled the feathers of the mainstream together with his unfiltered worldview and relentless baiting of authority, each of which have solely elevated this yr with the election of Donald Trump.
In March, he referenced a presidential badbadination with a clown-faced stand-in of the sitting President in his music video for “Lavender.”
That incident prompted a response from the Tweeter-in-Chief, however the Doggfather was unimpressed and clearly refuses to again down from his anti-Trump place, very similar to his hip-hop compatriot Eminem.
