In a candid interview on Thursday with London newspaper The Guardian, Snoop Dogg commented on U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama, accusing him of receiving funding from historically anti-black organization the Ku Klux Klan.
“The KKK gave Obama money. They was one of his biggest supporters… The media won’t tell you that. They don’t want you to know that. They just want you to know that this nigger befriended this other nigger who be threatening your values. But we all know all presidents lie to get into fucking office. That’s they fucking job.”
According to a reporter for Gone Hollywood, Obama denied these allegations, saying that the rumors are “completely untrue.“
Snoop is not the only Hip Hop figure that has openly expressed discontent towards the U.S. presidential candidate. In an interview with the Black Agenda Report, Russell Simmons accused Obama of being a “controlled politician.“
“I think about one-fourth of his campaign contributions came from small donations made over the internet, even though he collected more than any other democratic candidate from Wall Street people. So at the end of the day, he’s controlled, too. That’s my point. He’s a mouse, too, like everybody else,” Simmons added.
Although Snoop has expressed his opposition towards Obama, he believes that he will become America’s next president.
“In America’s eyes, that muthafucker’s gonna be president ’cause [John] McCain can’t fuck with him. Hillary [Clinton] can’t fuck with him. He’s winning over white people, white ladies.
