Snoop Lion has come out with his pick for president, and perhaps not surprisingly the rap star is endorsing Barack Obama.
The artists formerly known as Snoop Dogg made his endorsement at a press conference for his documentary Reincarnated, which is showing at the Toronto International Film Festival. There he told reporters that he is behind Obama 100 percent, Rolling Stone reported.
Snoop Lion also reserved some harsh words for Obama’s predecessor
“Let me begin, Obama for four more years, man,” Snoop Lion said. “Bush f****d up for eight years, so, I mean, you gotta at least give [Obama] eight years. He cleaned half the s*** up in four years, realistically. It ain’t like y’all gave him a clean house. Y’all gave him a house where the TV didn’t work, the toilet was stuffed up — everything was wrong with the house,” he said to a round of laughs from the reporters present.
He went on:
“So he had to come in and get your thing together, then he knocked down our most hated, the most wanted, the one who had our terror on orange or red or whatever color it was on — he went and found him, the one Bush couldn’t seem to find, the one who seemed to fly away in the dead of night and all that,” he continued, referring to Osama bin Laden.
“[Obama] went and found him and knocked him down, so don’t forget about that. Now everybody is peaceful and able to move and go and have a good time — it’s because he made that happen. So please don’t forget that. You understand me? So give him [another] four years to get his thing together and finish this deal out. You heard what Clinton said. You loved Clinton, didn’t you?”
Snoop Lion is now the second endorsement from a major rap star in recent days, Yahoo! News noted, although Nicki Minaj’s endorsement of Mitt Romney in a lyric of a recent song appears anything but serious.
Ironically, in Reincarnated Snoop Lion mentions that his rap material was never suitable to get him invited to the White House. Hopefully for Snoop, his endorsement can at least help Obama stay there.
