Snoop Dogg gives Barack Obama the thumbs up in the 2012 Presidential Election.
It’s election season, and while many Hip Hop artists have been relatively quiet as to their candidate of choice, a few emcees are finally speaking out. Now, according to XXL via Rolling Stone, rapper Snoop Dogg has thrown his weight behind President Barack Obama in the election.
In a recent press conference for his new documentary Reincarnation, the currently known at Snoop Lion stumped for President Obama in his bid for re-election. Snoop commended Obama’s policies over the past four years, saying that many of them helped undo much of the social and economic turmoil created by former President George W. Bush’s policies.
“Let me begin, Obama for four more years, man,” he said. “Bush fucked up for eight years, so, I mean, you gotta at least give him eight years. He cleaned half the shit up in four years, realistically. It ain’t like y’all gave him a clean house. Y’all gave him a house where the TV didn’t work, the toilet was stuffed up – everything was wrong with the house.
He continued, “He had to come in and get your thing together, then he knocked down our most hated, the most wanted, the one who had our terror on orange or red or whatever color it was on [Osama bin Laden] – he went and found him, the one Bush couldn’t seem to find, the one who seemed to fly away in the dead of night and all that…so give him [another] four years to get his thing together and finish this deal out. You heard what Clinton said. You loved Clinton, didn’t you?
Jay-Z talks about same sex marriage and President Barack Obama. Check it out.
President Obama had a few words for the Kanye West guy. Obama goes in on Kanye.
It’s been nearly three years since Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards, but some things are never forgotten.
President Obama called Kanye a jacka$$ at the time and not much has changed since September 2009.
Obama repeated the same statement to David Samuels of The Atlantic during a brief interview recently when asked which rapper he preferred most, West or Jay-Z.
“Jay-Z,” Obama says. “Although I like Kanye. He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented.”
When reminded that he once referred to Yeezy as a donkey’s rear end, Obama said his feelings hadn’t changed.
“He is a jacka$$,” Obama continued. “But he’s talented.”
President Obama gives a great speech about the Trayvon Martin case. This case is just sickening to me. I mean how does the police say that Zimmerman is innocent. President Obama is right that people involved in this case has a lot of soul searching to do.
Supreme Reaction and staff celebrates Martin Luther King day not only today but everyday. If it was not for him, a lot of people would not be in the position they are in today. Martin Luther King Jr. was a man that was ahead of his time. He stood for non-violence and for righteousness. He took a stand when times where hard and put his life on the line for everyone, not just black people. MLK dared to do things that not a lot of people would have done. He lead non-violent marches to get his point across. He took a lot of criticism from not only white people but from other black leaders too.
Martin Luther King wanted to see black ,brown,white, and other races coming together and being integrated instead of segregated so we could make a stronger America. He knew that his dream was going to come true and he was not going to stop fighting. Even the so called leaders for today seem so far behind him. (I need not to call out there names, I believe you know who they are).
If Martin Luther King Jr. was still alive today I still believe he would be fighting for equal rights. He would have been fighting for better immigration laws, better gun control in America, better health care, and better opportunities for minorities in the workforce. This man would of been a living icon. He would of been going to different events giving speeches on how he kept believing during the Civil Rights Movement and devoting a lot time in the youth. He would of definitely been an adviser to President Obama in the White House too.
What makes Martin Luther King so special is that he was ahead of his time. He was able to stand up for what was right and gave other people courage not to be scared. He ignored negative criticism from people that were ignorant. But most importantly he put his life on the line for me and you. Peace and God Bless.
B.O.B. coming off of his tour with President Obama comes out with this song called “Play The Guitar”. Which I do have to say this song is just corny. Just like his performance I saw at the House of Blues. This guy got a lot of hype before he came out but I am just not seeing his skills though. Check out the song and tell me what you think. Peace.
Yes, my favorite president tells America a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years. Check out this video. President Obama has swag.
Now thats whats up. Who says real don’t recognize real. Heavy D will go down as one of the best entertainers in hip hop ever and for Barack Obama to recognize that is dope. President Obama wrote a letter to Heavy D and his family for the funeral. Check out the article.
Following Heavy D’s sudden death last week, a funeral service was held in Mount Vernon, New York to honor the fallen rapper.
During the ceremony, Rev. Al Sharpton read a letter from President Obama who expressed his condolences for his family’s loss. “We extend our heartfelt condolences at this difficult time. He will be remembered for his infectious optimism and many contributions to American music. Please know that you and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers,” read the note.
Additional guests at the ceremony included Usher, Don King, Q-Tip, John Legend, Rosie Perez and Sean “Diddy” Combs. The Bad Boy mogul was quoted as stating that Heavy D was there for him “”at my darkest hour” and “was the first person to believe in me.”
Singer Johnny Gill performed the gospel hit “Never Would Have Made It,” while Hev’s nieces tearfully sang “His Eye is On the Sparrow.”
I am just hearing about this right now and this is just great. I mean I don’t know why we were there in the first place. President Obama hands down has to be my favorite President in my lifetime. I mean this guy is at least trying to fight for this country. President Obama announced at the White House that the troops will be home by the end of the year. The troops will come home immediately so they can be home by the holidays. A total of 4,483 troops have died in the nine years the U. S. troops have been there.
More than one president (including Obama) has admitted to smoking weed, however, Michelle Leonhart Obama’s deputy administrator has officially listed marijuana as a schedule 1 drug. This puts marijuana in the same dangerous classification as Heroin therefore, officially stating that the Obama administration views marijuana as an equally dangerous drug.
Yeah I know this is ridiculous especially given the fact that multiple presidents have admitted to smoking the dro, sometimes every night. Now let me give you some statistics that you will see in the video below as well. In 1969 a poll was done which showed that 84% of people stated that marijuana should absolutely never be legalized and the senate stated that none of them had any intent of legalizing the drug. Now, in the most recent poll 50% of people stated that marijuana SHOULD be legalized while 46% said absolutely not. This is a 40 point drop and an overall support to legalize marijuana however, the senate stated that they still (smokers and all) have no intentions of making it legal to toke up.
Now I ask this, how many stories do you hear about people getting high and killing people, going on rampages, stealing things or that marijuana is a precursor to the crackhead you see all methed out on the sidewalk? Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and may not wish to legalize marijuana (your stupid still) but you would have to agree that marijuana is in no way shape or form as dangerous as heroin. Michelle Leonhart must be smoking something stronger than heroin to think that and follow through with listing is as a schedule 1 drug. Don’t you think maybe the use of alcohol should be made illegal if that’s the case? I mean seriously I love a good drink but lets be real, there are more casualties and issues revolving around alcohol than there is anything else I feel like but noooo the government makes way too much money on liquor sales especially now that we are in a recession.
Get the hell off your high horse and let our Police department spend their time on problems/issues that matter.
