Snoop Dogg is going to make his voice heard at the polls. The rapper called in to Big Boy's Neighborhood discuss the killing of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter protests on June 4, and shared that it'll be his first time casting a ballot.
"For many years, they had me brainwashed thinking that you couldn't [vote] because you had a criminal record. I didn't know that," he explained to the host. The rapper had been convicted for felony drug possession in 1990, and pleaded guilty to felony gun and drug charges in 2007. "My record's been expunged, so now I can vote."
His eagerness to vote this year is due to his feelings about President Donald Trump, whom he roasted during Comedy Central Roasts Donald Trump in 2011. "I ain't never voted a day in my life," he admitted to Big Boy, "but this year I think I'm gonna get out and vote cuz I can't stand to see this punk in office one more year."
