*Snoop Dogg says he’s going to vote for the first time in his life this November – not because he never wanted to vote. He thought he wasn’t legally allowed.
“For many years, they had me brainwashed thinking that you couldn’t [vote] because you had a criminal record. I didn’t know that,” he told L.A radio host Big Boy. The rapper was convicted in 1990 for felony drug possession and pleaded guilty to felony gun and drug charges in 2007. “My record’s been expunged, so now I can vote.”
His eagerness to vote this year is due to his feelings about Donald Trump, whom he roasted during “Comedy Central Roasts Donald Trump” in 2011. “I ain’t never voted a day in my life,” he admitted to Big Boy, “but this year I think I’m gonna get out and vote cuz I can’t stand to see this punk in office one more year.”
