On October 27th Snoop released his highly anticipated Ep “Make America Crip Again“, the project featured appearances by Chris Brown, O.T. Genasis and October London, among others, with production from Kid Capri and Dâm-Funk .
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Snoop Dogg explained the meaning behind the EP’s title,
“It’s not a statement or a political act: it’s just good music. Certain people feel like we should make America ‘great again,’ but that time they’re referring to always takes me back to separation and segregation so I’d rather Make America Crip Again. In my lifetime, that’s when young black men in impoverished areas organized to help their communities and to take care of their own because society basically left them for dead. A lot of people glorify the gang-banging and violence but forget that in the beginning, the Crips’ main and sole purpose was to be the reflection of the Black Panthers. They looked after kids, provided after-school activities, fed them and stepped in as role models and father figures.
Today Uncle Snoop continues his promotion of the Ep by dropping off a brand new lyric video to bring his words to life.
Watch it below and be sure to pick up “Make America Crip Again” on ITunes.
