The newly Rastafied Snoop Dogg – Snoop Lion – backs a second term for Obama because George W Bush “fucked up for eight years”.

Rolling Stone reports from the Toronto International Film Festival, where Snoop’s Reincarnation documentary is premiering.

Snoop Lion kicked off his press conference but saying “Let me begin, Obama for four more years, man”.

“Bush fucked up for eight years,” he continued, “so, I mean, you gotta at least give [Obama] eight years. He cleaned half the shit up in four years, realistically. It ain’t like y’all gave him a clean house. Y’all gave him a house where the TV didn’t work, the toilet was stuffed up – everything was wrong with the house.”

“So he had to come in and get your thing together, then he knocked down our most hated, the most wanted [Osama Bin Laden], the one who had our terror on orange or red or whatever color it was on – he went and found him, the one Bush couldn’t seem to find, the one who seemed to fly away in the dead of night and all that.”

Reincarnation is a documentary covering Snoop Dogg’s transformation into Snoop Lion while recording and living in Jamaica. It premiered at the film festival over the weekend. It will be followed by a reggae album of the same name.
