Snoop Dogg will be voting for the first time this November.
In a recent interview with Big Boy's Neighborhood on Real 92.3, the 48-year-old rapper revealed that he’s actually never voted before because he thought having a criminal record prevented him from using his fifteenth amendment right.
“For many years they had me brainwashed thinking that you couldn’t vote because you had a criminal record,” Snoop — who was previously convicted for gun and drug-related charges— shared, before adding: "My record's been expunged, so now I can vote."
The "Main Phone" rapper went on to reveal his plan to vote for the candidate going against Donald Trump — seemingly Joe Biden— in November, saying, “[I] definitely [plan to vote], ’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.”
As fans know, Snoop has been a vocal critic of Trump for years. Back in 2017, the legendary rapper came under fire for his “BADBADNOTGOOD" music video where he used a toy gun to shoot a clown resembling the President. On the track itself, Snoop rapped about dealing with police brutality while in a world filled with clowns.
