Trump fires back: Snoop Dogg needs 'jail time'

music news 16/03/2017

Snoop Dogg has a "failing career" and belongs in jail, says Donald Trump.

"Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!" the US President wrote on Twitter.

The beef comes after the rapper released a video for his song 'Lavendar', in which he pretends shoots an orange-faced clown. Instead of a bullet coming out however, a flag with the word 'bang' appears.

"This is death to you all... this the final call," Snoop raps.

"The whole world is clownin' around," Snoop recently told Billboard.

"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."

Mr Trump's personal lawyer on Wednesday called on Snoop to apologise.

"There's absolutely nothing funny about an assassination attempt on a President, and I'm really shocked at him because I thought he was better than that."

Snoop's most recent album, 2016's Coolaid, entered the US chart at #40.
