Hypocritical gun-control ballad from man who previously said “I wouldn’t be the nigga that I am if I didn’t pop niggas in their mouth”
The latest hypocritical celebrity to jump on the anti-Second Amendment gun-control bandwagon, for no purpose other than increased notoriety, is rapper Snoop Dogg.
In his new video for the song “No Guns Allowed”, featuring Drake and Cori B., Snoop Lion, as he now refers to his “reincarnated” Rastafarian persona, interjects anti-gun lyrics with footage of mass school shootings and newspaper headlines regarding the tragedies.
The video even opens up with President Obama speaking during the memorial for the children killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings.
“It’s a powerful song and we hope to spread a positive message that hits home with people,” says Snoop Lion. “We’ve seen too much bloodshed involving guns and we want to prevent the next incident from happening. That’s what’s it all about, trying to bring awareness and push love and peace.”
Considering the lyrical and personal history of “Tha Doggfather”, real name: Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr., the very notion that he is suddenly anti-gun is laughable.
Snoop has been arrested and charged with illegal gun possession a number of times. The irony of him advocating gun control legislation that includes universal background checks for everyone will not be lost on law abiding gun owners. He is a case in point that background checks are irrelevant when people who have no respect for the law are intent on getting hold of guns.
We do not profess to be experts on Snoop Dogg’s lyrics or the meaning of his songs, but it isn’t difficult to recognize that a huge amount are glorifying of violence, and in particular of gun violence.
The song “A Nigga Witta Gun” is probably the best example of Snoop Dogg’s (featuring Dr. Dre) pro gun songs. Check out the lyrics.
We could go on, but the point is pretty clear. Snoopy likes “popping niggas” with guns – A LOT.
Most celebrities love to be seen in the public eye doing what they believe is right for their careers. That’s why so many of them instantly put their faces behind the push for strict gun control in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting in December.
Many were rightly exposed as hypocrites, given that they routinely star in movies and television productions in which depictions of gun violence are commonplace.
It gets to the point of ridiculousness when someone like Sylvester Stallone begins to lecture the American public on gun rights. In his last Rambo movie, Stallone shot to death 83 bad guys, and his latest film is called “Bullet To The Head”.
But perhaps we shouldn’t be too hard on Snoop. Perhaps he has seen the error of his ways after being arrested multiple times on illegal gun related charges. Perhaps he has tired of spitting lyrics about “cracking the mac back,” “popping off,” and “smacking necks back”.
