Snoop Dogg is talking police brutality in a new interview ahead of the MTV Mary + Jane premiere. The rapper is currently on his High Road Tour with Wiz Khalifa and has just unleashed his 14th studio album Coolaid, which returns Snoop to his G-Funk sound. Since police brutality is such a hot topic in light of the Philando Castile and Alton Sterling he also touched on that topic as well.
On police brutality Snoop said to Rolling Stone, “Every day of our lives, this is what we’ve been going through with the police. Getting beat, getting pulled over for nothing, getting harassed, getting killed. All that sh*t been going on for years, but now there’s cameras and now they’re saying everybody’s woke. No, we’ve been woke.”
Snoop also said to the publication, “I watched Lemonade and was like, ‘Damn.’ The music is dope, and the visuals are fly as f*ck. But I don’t drink lemonade; I drink Kool-Aid. I brought so much flavor to the game, and I’m what they consider one of the coolest motherf*ckers in hip-hop and life in general. I made a visual album too.”
Billboard reports that Snoop recently teamed up with The Game to peacefully protest violence by confronting the LAPD. The rapper is also currently executive-producing the Mary + Jane show on MTV as well as filming Martha and Snoops Dinner Party, where Snoop and Martha Stewart team up to host celebrity guests.
“I’ve never met anyone like Martha Stewart,” he said. “When we come together, it’s a natural combination of love, peace and harmony.”
