Musicians, athletes, and the Hollywood elites are all against Trump.
Rapper Eminem recently performed a freestyle rap staged in a parking garage during the BET awards blasting President Trump and his administration.
And now rapper Snoop Dogg is also spewing hateful anti-Trump rhetoric in his newest song.
Los Angeles based rap has had a long history of being political.
While it may not have started with Compton’s supergroup NWA from back in the late 1980’s, they did pave the way for Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and a solo Ice Cube career.
So it’s no surprise that Eminem and Snoop are using their music to politicize the anti-Trump stance.
During his BET performance, Eminem specifically mentioned Colin Kaepernick in a clear response to Trump having called out NFL players for kneeling during the anthem – a blatant disrespect to our country and the soldiers who died for it.
Snoop Dogg’s latest song satirizes Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan with its title “Make America Crip Again.”
Crip is obviously in reference to the Los Angeles gang rivals the Crips and Bloods.
And it’s a graphic song.
“Snoop Dogg has again used his music in order to attack President Donald Trump, with the release of a new song entitled “Make America Crip Again.”
The rapper — real name is Calvin Broadus Jr. — says in the opening lines of the song that “the president said he wants to make America great again.”
“F*ck that sh*t, we’re going to make America crip again,” it continues.
The song then takes aim at Trump’s comments on the scandal currently engulfing the NFL, in which he called for football players who decide to take a knee during the National Anthem to be fired, and also defends former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who popularized the form of Anthem protest during the 2016-17 season.
If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend!

“As I look around I see so many millionaires with skin like mine, don’t pretend that I’m with that bullsh*t your president been tweeting,” he raps.
“Colin Kaepernick was blackballed,” it continues. “This still America with three K’s, believe that sh*t.”
The song’s album also shows a blue hat with the words “Make America Crip Again,” a reference to Trump’s popular campaign slogan “Make America Great Again.”
It is not the first time that the rapper has used his music to attack Trump. In March, he released a politically-charged music video where he can be seen pulling out a gun on and shooting a parody clown version of the president.
Trump responded to the video by suggesting that if Snoop Dogg had made the same video with former president Barack Obama, he would likely have faced jail time.”
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!

Eminem received a lot of fan backlash for bashing Trump. Despite what the liberal left likes to believe, not all Trump supporters are country music listening white supremacists.
It will be interesting to see if Snoop Dogg suffers the same backlash from his pro-Trump fans as Eminem.
