Snoop Dog Rant ➠ Reagan Caused L.A. Gang Explosion In 1980’s
In a bizarre rant, Snoop Dogg blamed President Ronald Reagan for the culture of gang violence that exploded in Los Angeles in the 1980s.
Early in the ‘70s and toward the latter part of the ‘70s everything was beautiful because we had ways to have fun and communicate, and those who were underprivileged, the low economic side of life, the government would provide for us, which helped us get by. It was a society and we all needed it and we all had it and we all helped each other. Then when Reaganomics kicked in, certain things were taken away, after-school programs and things of that nature. Guns and drugs were shipped into the neighborhood. So it was a shift of having fun and playing football to selling drugs and shooting at each other. To me it was a system that was designed, because when the Reaganomics era began, that’s when this began.
Snoop, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., spoke in Austin, TX, as South by Southwest Music’s 2015 keynote speaker.
For the record, Snoop Dogg was 10 years old when Reagan took office. More, the rapper, who wants to be called Snoop Lion now, is worth $120 million, according to celebritynetworth.com.
