Snoop Dogg joined Big Boy on the Real 92.3 on Thursday, where he said that this November will mark the first time he's ever voted because he previously thought that he wasn't able to since he had a criminal record.

"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 around the 11:50 mark when asked about his stance on voting. "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."

When asked if 2020 will mark the first time he votes, Snoop responded "definitely."

Snoop also addressed the lootings and riots that have been going on across the country, pointing out that the black community should not be solely blamed for the destruction of property.

"Let's be real, I've more white faces looting, running out of stores, setting fires, throwing bricks, that's not our forte," Snoop said. "That ain't what we do, we steal. We don't set fires and all that."

He also went on to say that people need to start giving the black community more credit for stopping the arson and looting because many black people and even gang members were protecting the businesses being destroyed.
