Can you teach an old dogg new tricks? Aparently so. Snoop Lion has changed his tune - not only from rap to reggae, but also from gangster to preacher. On "No Guns Allowed", featuring Drake and his daughter Cori B., Snoop preaches against violence and for peace and understanding. It's a message that we here at Zumic whole-heartedly support.
The music video starts with a clip of Barack Obama before transitioning to a bunch of news footage of tragic mass shootings and then the Doggfather. Drake's verse is tight. The powerful message of the song is matched with the power of the music. Nice job.
