The rapper, Snoop Dogg has just released the video for his track, “Lavender” on which he features Kaytranada. Lavender is the remix of his BadBadNotGood.
The track takes on the often hilarious current state of politics in the United Stated right now – which explains his use of clown characters.
In it, Snoop Dogg is an anchorman in a world full of clowns. There’s also a clown version President Donald Trump called Ronald Klump, while actor Michael Rapaport is featured as a weed smoking clown who gets shot dead by police.
With lyrics like: “Trying to keep from dying in these muthafuckin’ streets / Fuck the police / From a black man’s point of view” and “Resident evil / It’s all on camera and they still don’t believe you”, Snoop tries to address issues of police brutality in America.
The video was directed by Jesse Wellens and according to Snoop, they did not want to make the video “controversial but real – real to the voice of the people who don’t have a voice” because “the whole world is clownin’ around… if you really look at some of these motherfuckers, they are clowns.”
