Snoop Dogg dropped a music video for a new song, entitled “Lavendar,” which seemed to be a commentary on Trump-era America and the people living in it. At the end of the video, a Trump-like clown figure is shot by Snoop Dogg with a toy glitter gun. Republicans were outraged, but the streets were supportive.

Common was one of those royal voices in hip-hop who stepped up to defend Uncle Snoop, despite the fact that some thought his video was taking things too far. Click on the audio player to hear what Common had to say in this exclusive clip from the Early Morning Evening News on the “Ed Lover Show.”
