Snoop Dogg Pulls A Gun On Trump In ‘Lavender’ Video, Tackles Police Brutality

In his 20-plus years of rapping, Snoop Dogg has never been a stranger to controversy, but the rapper’s latest music video for the song “Lavender” could get him in trouble with President Donald Trump.

In the video, which deals with police brutality, the 45-year-old rapper can be seen pulling out a fake gun on a man wearing clown makeup and dressed as Trump. Snoop fires the gun, revealing a flag with the word “Bang” and is shown with the parody Trump chained up in the next scene.

The imagery in the video will certainly garner a reaction, but according to Snoop Dogg, he isn’t looking for a response from the U.S. or Trump. The rapper told Billboard when he puts stuff out, he doesn’t expect a reaction. “I just put it out because I feel like it’s something that’s missing. Any time I drop something, I’m trying to fill in a void,” he said.

Co-directed by YouTube star Jesse Wellens, the music video stars actor Michael Rapaport in a world full of clowns and features a scene inspired by the death of Philando Castile. “I just had been seeing this go on in the world politically, and I actually was a cop for six years in the military, so I can kind of see it from the cop’s point of view too,” said Wellens.

He added, “When I originally wrote the idea of the video, the video of [Philando Castile] getting shot came out online and it was causing riots. We just kind of wanted to bring the clowns out, because it’s clownery — it’s ridiculous what’s happening.”

According to Snoop, Trump is one of those clowns and the rapper has a long list of problems with him which include: “The ban that [Trump] tried to put up; him winning the presidency; police being able to kill [people] and get away with it; people being in jail for weed for 20, 30 years and [people] that’s not black on the streets making money off of it.”

Snoop added that there are a lot of issues going on in the world but he and the directors “really wanted to lock into like police, the president and just life in general” for the video. It’s also not the rapper’s first time having a problem with Trump. In January, Snoop took to Instagram to call out any artists who would want to perform at Trump’s inauguration and said he would roast them.
