Songfacts®:

  • The title track of Snoop Dogg's Make America Crip Again EP finds him rapping: "Don't pretend like I'm with that bulls--t your president been tweetin."

    "Certain people feel like we should make America 'great again,' but that time they're referring to takes me back to separation and segregation so I'd rather make American Crip again," he explained.

    "A lot of people glorify the gang banging and violence but forget that in the beginning, the Crip's main and sole purpose was to be the reflection of the Black Panthers. They looked after kids, provided after school-activities, fed them, and stepped in as role models and father figures," Snoop continued. "When you listen to my records, there's always been a mix of conscious records and party records and this EP continues that trend."
  • The song contains a sample of "La Di Da Di," as performed by Doug E. Fresh and MC Ricky D and interpolates "Hey Young World," as performed by Slick Rick.
