Snoop Dogg has a dope new video on his hands that’s both thought-provoking and entertaining.
He recently dropped the visuals for “Lavender (Nightfall Remix)”, which is a remix to a collaboration he did with with the Canadian group BADBADNOTGOOD and Kaytranada.
The video was directed by Jesse Wellens, and the actor Michael Rapaport plays a clown, who ends up being shot by a police officer. You’ll instantly notice that most of the characters in the clip are clowns, so their silly appearance coupled with such dark subject matter makes for an interesting contrast.
There’s also a clown made to look like Donald Trump, who meets a grim ending once Snoop catches up to him. The Dogg Father also devotes a few lines to the problem of police brutality and young black men being killed.
“Trying to keep from dying in these motherf—– streets / F— the police, from a black man’s point of view,” he raps.
Peep the video above.
