Donald Trump’s Lawyer Snaps On Rapper Snoop Dogg Over “Assassination” Video

(AllHipHop News) Snoop Dogg is receiving some backlash for his controversial video, in which he shoots a Donald Trump look-alike.

Snoop Dogg’s video for “Lavender” featuring Kaytranadaha, been drawing the wrath of a variety Republicans, since it was released on March 12.

Snoop’s “Lavender” video features the rapper caught in a world of evil clowns, which features President Trump as the main protagonist.

Towards the end, Snoop grabs a fake gun and shoots the POTUS, who also smokes some bud in the video.

Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen took aim at Snoop Dogg over the clip, while expressing disappointment in the rap star.

“It’s totally disgraceful, Snoop owes the president and apology. There’s absolutely nothing funny about an assassination attempt on the President,” President Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen said.

Snoop and Trump were somewhat friendly in past years, before Trump launched his campaign and captured the White House last year.

Snoop infamously roasted the billionaire real estate mogul/reality show star for Comedy Central March of 2011, however, it looks like their friendship has certainly cooled off.

“This motherf##ker (Trump) tried to put up; him winning the presidency; police being able to kill motherf##kers and get away with it; people being in jail for weed for 20, 30 years and motherf**kers that’s not black on the streets making money off of it – but if you got color or ethnicity connected to your name, you’ve been wrongfully accused or locked up for it, and then you watching people not of color position themselves to get millions and billions off of it,” Snoop Dogg told Billboard.

Michael Cohen said there was a double standard, had anybody and had any popular musician put out such a video about President Obama, the condemnation would have come much faster.

“I would not have accepted it if it were President Obama I certainly do not accept it as President Trump,” Cohen said.

Cohen told Snoop he needed to take some notes from NFL legend Jim Brown, who decided to work closely with Trump instead of opposing the administration.

Michael Cohen joins a growing number of Trump supporters, like Senator Marco Rubio, an admitted hip-hop fan who condemned Snoop’s “Lavender” video.

Some hip-hop artists came out and supported Snoop’s video, like veterans Treach and Ice T, who had his own problems with the government over his “Cop Killer” track with Body Count in 1991.

However, Trump’s lawyer did not see the point of the video.

“I’m not really sure I understand the artistic value having someone dressed up as Trump and firing a weapon at him,” Michael Cohen stated.

According to reports, the Secret Service is looking into the “Lavender” video.

Metro Boomin, Southside, Lex Luger & More May Face Off In A Producer Beat Battle!

INTERESTING! I CANT WAIT FOR SOMEBODY TO CALL MY NAME LOL !

(AllHipHop Rumors) Producer beat battles are nothing new of the sort, but each one proves itself to be more and more epic than the last at times.

After all, there is nothing like a great showcasing of talent, and a chance for producers to run down their hits in the battle.

A few weeks ago Swizz Beatz and Just Blaze had an epic battle, and it looks like some prominent Atlanta producers are looking to bring that energy down south!

Lex Luger has now challenged fellow producer Southside to a beat battle where the winner will win $50,000.

Southside acknowledged the proposal, but decided to up the reward to $100k.

“So, I wake up. I got a DM from Lex Luger talking about a beat battle with me, Metro, and Sonny. Lex, this is $50,000… until you got a whole 100 on you you can gamble with, bro, don’t hit me talking about no beat battle … put a whole hundred on the table and we can beat battle,” said Southside.

Soon after, Lex Luger responded saying that he’d battle any producer. Southside couldn’t just accept the challenge. LOL. He instead had to go on Twitter to suggest that Luger wasn’t truly getting a large amount of money for his beats.

“I tell u what tell a n-gga get the hunnid grand and show it to me @SmokedOutLuger and not 6k and a 2003 bens and I’m on,” said Southside.

There isn’t a set date for the beat battle yet but producers like Drumma Boy, and Zaytoven’s names have been suggested too. Metro Boomin’ has even joked that he’s a little over $99k short to participate. Shawty Redd has even said don’t call him until producers are actually ready to make songs on the spot, and not play songs.

Who would you like to see added to the battle if this really goes down?
