“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey
Readers before you ask, yes I do play Snoop’s videos on my TV program “Music Inner City TV” and on my radio show “Music Inner City Radio” but at times I have to edit a few things out like a pack of bud (weed) or some “street” language etc.
Here is the question folks. Is Snoop Dogg a role model for you kids who look up to him in the hood down in the LBC?
Remember, Big Snoop has a football league for young inner city kids down in Cali. The kids have to do good in school to play football in Snoop’s league. They have to do their homework etc.
But check this out, how do these kids feel when they see Snoop smoking bud in his videos, wearing gang colors and more? Is this a role model for his kids in this football league? I don’t think so.
Young people today need real role models not fake ones. Do we want kids smoking weed like Snoop? I don’t think so readers.
Finally, to make matters worse Snoop is getting ready to do a movie with rapper Wiz Khalifa. The movie will be about having fun and smoking weed. Heck, Wiz has a new release called “Rolling Papers”!! Say what???
So I ask what side of the fence is Snoop on? I had a chance to do a EXCLUSIVE interview with Evangelist Beverly Broudus Green and Erma Vernado. The mom and aunt of Snoop here in Seattle last year. It was great meeting them.
I will tell you this, Evangelist Green loves her children and wants her kids to do the right thing, including her son Snoop. I will leave it at that. I will have the interview with Snoop’s mom and aunt here on our will soon for those of you who missed it.
