Hip-Hop entrepreneur and music artist Snoop Dogg took to his Instagram last week in an apparent effort to mock the President of the United States.
Snoop posted a photograph of, what looks like a premium cannabis brand named “Sleepy Joe OG” via his Instagram account last week. The moniker was given to President Joe Biden during the last presidential election when President Donald Trump dubbed him “Sleepy Joe.”
The package has a caricature of Biden with a backdrop of the Ukrainian, Russian, and Chinese flags. On the wrapping, it jokingly implies that the cannabis is so good that “You won’t even remember what country you are in!”
Underneath the “Sleepy Joe OG” it states the phrase, “Where am I???”
Snoop, with almost 75 million Instagram followers had comments from many celebrities and the post garnered more than 620,000 likes.
Snoop has been known to be a self-described cannabis connoisseur since he made his debut on the Laurence Fishburne-helmed Deep Cover movie title soundtrack song, Deep Cover.
Last year, Snoop implied in a song that he “blew with Obama.” Insinuating in a single he released on 4/20 (the infamous 420 signifies the use of smoking marijuana and it’s aptly a “national holiday” amongst cannabis connoisseurs annually on April 20, hence 4/20) that he smoked marijuana with the former President of the United States, Barack Obama.
The song was Gang Signs from the EP, From Tha Streets 2 Tha Suites.
In the song, Snoop stated, “Still sippin’ gin and juice while I’m smoking marijuana / I bet you never blew with Obama.”
Benzinga has reported that Snoop, whose birth name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr, is a co-founder of Casa Verde Capital. The company is a venture capitalist group that assists with the funding of marijuana-related startup companies. Earlier this year, the budding Hip-Hop artist, along with his son Cordell Broadus, partnered with the mafia-themed metaverse project MOBLAND to farm digital weed.
