Snoop Dogg says he’s never voted — but this year he plans on changing that.
“I ain’t never voted a day in my life, but this year I think Imma get out and vote because I can’t stand to see this punk in office one more year,” Snoop said on the Real 92.3 on Thursday.
The rap star joined Big Boy (via zoom) for an in-depth conversation about the state of the country, police brutality and the death of George Floyd. When asked about his stance on voting he said that he didn’t vote for years because he thought he couldn’t because of his criminal record.
“For many years they had me brainwashed thinking that you couldn’t vote cause you had a criminal record. I didn’t know that. My record’s been expunged, so now I can vote.”
Shortly after graduating from high school, Snoop, real name Calvin Broadus, was arrested for possession of cocaine and was in and out of prison on drug and gun charges. In 1993, he was arrested and charged with murder in connection to the death of a rival gang member. He was later acquitted.
Snoop — who has since gone on to achieve superstar status and land several endorsement deals, said that he wants to be a good example to the youth.
“Definitely, ’cause we got to make a difference. I can’t talk about it and not be about it … I can’t tell you to do it then you don’t go do it. Everybody know I’m a front-liner. I ain’t gonna tell you to do something I didn’t do.”
Addresses George Floyd Protests
The 48-year-old also addressed the lootings and riots that have been going on across the country, pointing out that the black community should not be solely blamed for the destruction of property.
“Let’s be real, I’ve more white faces looting, running out of stores, setting fires, throwing bricks, that’s not our forte,” Snoop said. “That ain’t what we do, we steal. We don’t set fires and all that.”
He also went on to say that people need to start giving the black community more credit for stopping the arson and looting because many black people and even gang members were protecting the businesses being destroyed.
