Snoop Dogg is going after the President again. The rapper took more shots at Donald Trump in his new song, called “Make America Crip Again.” It’s the title track for the album of the same name, which arrives on Friday. At one point, he complains that Colin Kaepernick has been blackballed from the NFL for kneeling during the National Anthem to protest police brutality.

He rapped: “As I look around, I see so many millionaires with skin like mine. Don’t pretend like I’m with that bulls— your President been tweeting. Them black boys is ballin’ out, the whole block been eating. Ima line ya’ll on up, then start my own league. Ima sign ya’ll on up. I’m thinkin who my heroes be. Thank God for the negro league. Colin Kaepernick was blackballed, oh n—–, please. This still America with three K’s, believe that s—.”The president said he wants to make America great again. Fuck that shit, we gon’ make America Crip again.

In a statement to CNN, he defended his song’s name, a reference to the Los Angeles street gang, the Crips. He said the song is “not a statement or a political act: it’s just good music.”

He said: “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. What I mean by that is, 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 Crip’s 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.

This isn’t the first time Snoop has went after Trump through his music. Back in March, the rapper took heavy criticism for pointing a gun at a Trump-like character in his video for “Lavender (Nightfall Remix).”
