Riff: Snoop Lion – “No Guns Allowed”

Apr 22, 2013

They just can’t wait to get you in the system/The district attorney could use a conviction/Told you no guns and then you didn’t listen

from No Guns Allowed lyrics by Snoop Lion

Snoop has all the credibility in the world to criticize and admonish gun violence, and to hear him analyze it through a different lens is incredibly poignant – probably more for him than us. The only travesty is Drake‘s awkward cameo – where he came from and why he’s here is anyone’s guess.
