Snoop Dogg was convicted of drug possession in 1990 and gun and drug charges in 2007. He revealed that he was “brainwashed” into thinking that “you couldn’t vote because you had a criminal record”.

“I didn’t know that. My record’s been expunged so now I can vote” he explained.

“We got to make a difference, I can’t talk about it and not be about it,” he said. “I can’t tell you to do it and then not go do it. If I tell you to do something, I done it already.”

Snoop also made a mention of the Black Lives Matter protests which have erupted across the US in response to police brutality and systemic racism.
