Snoop Dogg has released a new cover for his recent EP, “Make America Crip Again,” and it features the rapper standing over a body bag that contains an imitation corpse of President Trump.
The artwork is a play on the cover of Ice Cube’s 1991 “Death Certificate,” which featured Cube standing over the corpse of “Uncle Sam.”
When Snoop released the title track to the album in late October, he said that the song was “not a statement or a political act.”
“It’s just good music. Certain people feel like we should make America ‘great again,’ but that time they’re referring to always takes me back to separation and segregation, so I’d rather ‘Make America Crip Again,'” the rapper told Rolling Stone.
Earlier this year, Snoop Dogg’s music video for his song “Lavender” featured him shooting at a clown dressed as Trump, which Trump took to Twitter to condemn.
Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!
