The legendary American rapper Snoop Dogg, best known for his smashing hits like “Gin & Juice” is ready to take part in the voting process making it his first time ever.
Snoop Dogg revealed his intentions to be part of the democratic process of voting while appearing on Real 92.3’s Big Boy’s Neighborhood on Thursday. The rapper talked about how he’s never voted before but now he is ready to do so in the upcoming polls of the 2020 presidential election.
Snoop revealed that he wasn’t aware that he could vote because he had a criminal record which prevented him from doing so but times have changed.
“For many years they had me brainwashed thinking that you couldn’t vote because you had a criminal record,” said Snoop, who was convicted of a felony in 1990 and 2007. “I didn’t know that. My record’s been expunged so now I can vote.”
The reason behind the rapper’s motivation to go and vote this year is because of President Donald Trump. The 48-year-old rapper feels its time America had some change in leadership.
“I ain’t never voted a day in my life, but this year I think I’m going to get out and vote because I can’t stand to see this punk in office one more year,” he said.
“We got to make a difference. I can’t talk about it and not be about it,” Snoop shared. “I can’t tell you to do it and then not go do it … If I tell you to do something, I done it already.”

Amidst the protests, Snoop has been staying home and following the social distancing protocols that were put up to combat the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and he strongly advised the viewers and listeners of the show to stay safe while on the streets. “I want to lead by example,” he said.
He also stated that he’s doing his part in supporting the Black Lives Matter movement by using his platform and music to do so from home.
