Snoop Dogg recently revealed he never voted before, as he was led to believe that he could not do so due to his criminal record. However, the rapper will officially vote in the general election in November this year, and he won't be voting for President Donald Trump. In response to this recent announcement, many of Snoop Dogg's fans took to Twitter to express that they were glad to see that he will finally be able to exercise his right to vote this year.
The "Drop It Like It's Hot" rapper appeared on the Real 92.3 radio show Big Boy's Neighborhood on Thursday to discuss current events and, specifically, Trump. At one point during the interview, Snoop Dogg said, "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." The rapper initially thought that he was not allowed to vote because of his criminal record. He then pointed out that this is even more evidence of the systemic racism that many are protesting against today. He continued, "For many years, they had me brainwashed thinking that you couldn't vote because you had a criminal record. I didn't know that. My record's been expunged, so now I can vote."
Snoop Dogg can indeed vote in the upcoming presidential election, and, based on what he had to say, he won't be casting his vote for Trump. Between his admission regarding his voting record to his bold statements about the president, Twitter users had plenty to say about Snoop Dogg's recent comments.
