It’s election season, and while many Hip Hop artists have been relatively quiet as to their candidate of choice, a few emcees are finally speaking out. Now, according to XXL via Rolling Stone, rapper Snoop Dogg has thrown his weight behind President Barack Obama in the election.
In a recent press conference for his new documentary Reincarnation, the currently known at Snoop Lion stumped for President Obama in his bid for re-election. Snoop commended Obama’s policies over the past four years, saying that many of them helped undo much of the social and economic turmoil created by former President George W. Bush’s policies.
“Let me begin, Obama for four more years, man,” he said. “Bush fucked up for eight years, so, I mean, you gotta at least give him eight years. He cleaned half the shit 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.
He continued, “He had to come in and get your thing together, then 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 [Osama bin Laden] – 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…so give him [another] four years to get his thing together and finish this deal out. You heard what Clinton said. You loved Clinton, didn’t you?”
