Meanwhile, Snoop revealed yesterday that he will be voting for the first time in his life this year in a bid to oust Donald Trump from office.

“For many years they had me brainwashed thinking that you couldn’t vote cause you had a criminal record,” he said in a radio interview. “I didn’t know that. My record’s been expunged, so now I can vote.”
