Snoop Lion Joins Tony Bennett's Gun Safety Initiative, "Voices Against Violence"

Smoky vocals meet smoked-out emcees as Snoop Lion gets down with Tony Bennett's Voices Against Violence, joining Paul McCartney, Jim Carey and Elton John.

Gangsta rapper-turned-gun activist Snoop Lion (a/k/a Snoop Dogg) has continued his campaign to bring peace to streets. A rep for Tony Bennett confirmed that Snoop has aligned with the veteran crooners Voices Against Violence campaign. Snoop tweeted the association.

Snoop has spoken extensively on his evolving views on violence and guns. In March of this year, the Long Beach, California veteran proposed his own possible solution on the issue to HipHopDX:

“One of [the solutions] is doing what I’m doing: correcting my mistakes by being a better person and putting out more energy and more music that represents what we’re going through as opposed to what we went through,” Snoop Lion told DX.

Voices Against Violence exists in partnership with the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence launched a new text-to-call campaign to give Americans another way to make their voice heard on Capital Hill. Over 30,000 calls to Congress have been generated by Voices and the Brady Campaign showing support for common sense gun laws effectively keeping the pressure on Congress to support legislation and creating a backlash against those Senators who voted no to the bipartisan bill. Other celebrities who've shown their support include: Paul McCartney, Elton John, Alec Baldwin, Jim Carey, and Sting.

    I think Tony Bennet took a couple puffs too. Snoop 45 now; he was like 24 when he entered the Rap game nationally ("Deep Cover"). So just like all the other human beings, his opinions change with time.

      Hes not the first former gang member to change and realize the error of his ways. Snoop grew up in that shit and didnt have much choice unlike a lot of these kids who just get into that shit because they think guns and gang banging is cool

    Here's the difference, Early Snoop talked about using guns HIMSELF New Snoop is telling OTHER PEOPLE not to use them. You are just a rapper and have no influence to tell someone else what to do, so shut your preaching as up.

      -you ever heard of growing up and recognizing your mistakes? -do you do the same thing you did as a toddler or adolescent? -you ever heard of taking someone's advice? -ever had a conversation with a wise elder? Naw, you one of those know it all's who are perfect.

    I wont be surprised if Snoop starts advocating for more War on Drugs legislation. Does he not realize that non-violent gun charges and non-violent drug charges are what are putting many young black men behind bars? Documentary on the how the Law has historically restricted the black individual's right to bear arms (an individual right recognized through hundred years of English common law):!
