On Sunday, Snoop Dogg dropped the new music video for his Nightfall remix of BadBadNotGood’s track “Lavender” featuring Kaytranada.
The video depicts a world full of mad clowns, and actor Michael Rapaport plays a clown father who is the target of police brutality.
In his lyrics, Snoop addresses police brutality and racial profiling: “Trying to keep from dying in these muthaf***in’ streets / F*** the police / From a black man’s point of view.”
The politically charged video also features a parody clown version of President Trump called “Ronald Klump.” The video presents a satirical look at the current political climate, with Clown-in-Chief Klump holding a press conference to announce the deportation of all dogs. In the climactic scene, Snoop aims a fake gun at Ronald Klump and mock-assassinates him.
Speaking to Billboard, Snoop lambasted Trump, 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***ing clown as president … so I wanted to take time out to push pause on a party record and make one of these records for the time being.
“It’s a lot of clown sh** going on that we could just sit and talk on the phone all day about, but it’s a few issues that we really wanted to lock into [for the video] like police, the president and just life in general,” he added.
