In a brand new video posted to his YouTube channel, the Long Beach native shows viewers the step-by-step of registering to vote, which he did through the state of California’s online portal. With this demonstration, the rapper hopes to show that other people who might have doubts about navigating the system could fill out the form. Snoop Dogg, himself, had never registered to vote in that past because he thought that his criminal record would keep him from doing so.

Over the summer, in an interview on Big Boy’s Neighborhood, Snoop shared that he was “brainwashed” into thinking he couldn’t vote as a young man. He went on to say that Donald Trump’s presidency is what pushed him to look into his rights.

“I ain’t never voted a day in my life, but this year I think Imma get out and vote because I can’t stand to see this punk in office one more year,” Snoop said at the time. “For many years they had me brainwashed thinking that you couldn’t vote cause you had a criminal record. I didn’t know that. My record’s been expunged, so now I can vote.”

In the video, The Doggfather mentions how the voting process can be daunting, especially when it comes to the questions of parole. Snoop explained it might discourage voter participation:

“This is the sh*t I was talking about,” he said. “This would be the discouraging moment at the end of the vote for me… But guess what? It’s not. F*ck what they talking about.”

Mr. Broadus went on to advocate for California’s Proposition 17 which would allow people on parole for felony convictions to vote in California.
