Rapper Snoop Dogg has officially endorsed Hillary Clinton for the 2016 presidential election, saying he believes it is time for a woman to lead the U.S.
Appearing on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” on May 17, the musician advocated for the former secretary of state to move back into the White House next year.
“I would love to see a woman in office because I feel like we’re at that stage in life to where we need a perspective other than the male’s train of thought. And just to have a woman speaking from a global perspective as far as representing America, I’d love to see that. So I’ll be voting Ms. Clinton,” the rapper said in response to a home viewer’s question.
Another famous singer, Ne-Yo, has also recently supported the former first lady, saying that Clinton is “a favorite of mine.”
For years, Snoop Dogg has been associated with marijuana use and advocating for its recreational legalization. Despite endorsing Clinton, other candidates, specifically in the music industry, have announced their already ill-fated plans to run for the White House.
Rapper Waka Flocka Flame announced his intention to seek the position of Commander-in-Chief in April, with a platform that would immediately legalize recreational marijuana use throughout the U.S. He also announced he would ban dogs from restaurants and ban people with shoes larger than size 13 from walking outside, The Washington Post reported.
One more thing: Waka Flocka Flame is 28, seven years younger than the age requirement to run for president, making his 2016 prospects unlikely.
