You can count Snoop Dogg as the Democratic party’s newest unifier: The rapper is set to a headline a “unity party” for donors following the Democratic National Convention, which ends July 28.
The party — which was announced by its co-sponsors PACs Priorities USA, the Senate Majority PAC and the House Majority PAC — will take place in Philadelphia.
Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr., has previously voiced his support for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
“I would love to see a woman in office because I feel like we’re at that stage in life to where we need a perspective other than the male’s train of thought,” the rapper said in an interview on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” last year. “And just to have a woman speaking from a global perspective as far as representing America, I’d love to see that. So I’ll be voting for Ms. Clinton.”
But that’s not the first time Snoop got involved in the political sphere: Way back in 1996, he and Tupac Shakur spoke out about Proposition 209, an anti-affirmative action initiative. And of course, there was that time he revealed to Jimmy Kimmel that during a visit to the White House, he got high in a bathroom.
