Snoop Dogg isn't really feeling the new chief in charge of the United States. Snoop put out a new pollitically charged music video "Lavender" ft. Kaytranada which is a take on BADBADNOTGOOD's single, "Lavender" from the album IV.

The visuals introduce a community of clowns and shows a family gathered around the kitchen getting ready to begin their day. The father gets in his car and takes off to his destination, when a police officer see's him commit an offense, he pulls over the father. This is when things start to get interesting. As a bystander films, the cop sees a weapon in the man's briefcase and then takes out his service weapon and instantly reacts by shooting the father while the bystander captures everything on his cell phone.

Another scene shows a suited guy with the name of Ronald Klump on television giving a press conference. The title at the bottom of the screen has a caption that says: "The Clown House - Ronald Klump wants to depart all Doggs." Disturbed by what he saw on the press conference, Snoop takes matters in his own hands.

In an interview with Billboard, Snoop expressed his vision on what he had in mind for the music video, saying: "I feel like it’s a lot of people making cool records, having fun, partying, but nobody’s dealing with the real issue with this f**king clown as president, and the sh*t that we dealing with out here, so I wanted to take time out to push pause on a party record and make one of these records for the time being.”

Snoop also highlighted his thoughts in the interview about any haters: “When I be putting sh*t out, I don’t ever expect or look for a reaction. I just put it out because I feel like it’s something that’s missing. Any time I drop something, I’m trying to fill in a void.” Adding, “When I watch it against other music videos, this one has a message and a story. It looks like a film. I’m just proud of the entire piece altogether.”

To say the least, Snoop Dogg's music video has errupted in controversy throughout the internet, talking about how the video portrays unneccessary violence like the prop gun scene with the police or the crazy ending. What kind of message do you think Snoop Double-O-G is sending to his fans?

WARNING: The music video contains explicit language and violent scenes, viewer discretion advised.
