Snoop Dogg Criticized by Sen

Cohen added that he would raise the same objections had former President Barack Obama been on the receiving end of Snoop Dogg's video.

The President wasn't going to take that sort of diss lying down - so he took to Twitter for one of his trademark rants, possibly without warning his homies in the White House.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) warned Snoop Dogg on Monday about the negative message the rapper's new music video may convey.

Senator Marco Rubio made headlines during his run for the presidency when he revealed he was a lover of west coast hip hop.

The video is a Nightfall remix of BadBadNotGood's "Lavender," and it stars Snoop as a TV personality in a world populated by clowns. By "toy gun", we're talking about the kind that unfurls a flag that says "BANG" when the trigger is pulled - but still, Rubio didn't like it.

In the video we take a look at an entire universe that's populated by clowns, so if you're scared of clowns this might not be the video for you. "Jail time!" he wrote.

The Secret Service said it's aware of the video, but it's unclear if an investigation will be initiated, TMZ reported. "It's totally disgraceful. Snoop owes the president an apology", Cohen said, adding, "There's absolutely nothing amusing about an assassination attempt on a president, and I'm really shocked at him, because I thought he was better than that". Upon its release earlier this week, Snoop said he wasn't happy with the current administration.

Later, Snoop Dogg is seen firing a fake pistol at Klump as he stands with his hands raised.

The rapper told Billboard he aims to include "Lavender" (Nightfall Remix) on his new album, now titled Never Left. "Anything I drop something, I'm trying to fill a void", he told Billboard on Sunday. I feel like it's a lot of people making cool records...
