Snoop Dogg, of course, celebrated 4/20 yesterday with the release of his latest album, From Tha Streets 2 Tha Suites. Naturally, there are references to marijuana usage in some of the tracks, and on one of them, Snoop suggests that he has smoked with a certain well-known former president. On “Gang Signs,” Snoop raps, “Still sippin’ gin and juice while I’m smoking marijuana / I bet you never blew with Obama.” Presumably, he means Barack Obama.
It’s debatable if Snoop has actually smoked pot with Obama, but he has previously claimed to have done so in a White House bathroom. In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel on GGN in 2014, he stated: “I said, ‘May I use the bathroom for a second?’ And [White House staff] said, ‘What are you going to do? No. 1 or No. 2?’ I said, ‘No. 2.’ So I said, ‘Look, when I do the No. 2, I usually, you know, have a cigarette or I light something to get the aroma right.’ They said, ‘You know what? You can light a piece of napkin.’ I said, ‘I’ll do that.’ And the napkin was this.”
