The since-deleted picture, which lives on in screenshots, depicted Snoop Dogg wearing a blue hat looking over a lifeless body draped in an American flag with a toe tag reading “TRUMP.”
The rapper’s publicist told Variety his album has already been released with a different cover. The new graphic features a blue baseball cap reading, “Make America Crip Again,” clearly alluding to Trump’s red hats with his “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan. The EP’s original artwork appears to be a reference to Ice Cube’s 1991 album “Death Certificate,” which showed the rapper standing over the corpse of Uncle Sam.
Snoop Dogg takes aim Trump throughout the album’s title track, rapping, “The president said he wants to make America great again. F— that s—, we gon’ make America crip again.”
The president responded at the time on Twitter, writing, “Can you imagine what the outcry would be if [Snoop Dogg], failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama?”
