Luke Bather - 16th Mar 2017

Oh, it's satire! YouTube personality Jesse Wellens teams up with James DeFina as they throw subtlety out of the window for Snoop Dogg.

If there's one golden rule in hip-hop, it's to never go full Juggalo but by God do they come close here. In a world where everyone is a clown (including the President - woah), Snoop is the only man to make sense of it all. Despite taking the clown thing and really running with it, there are some nice visual cues here. Dialled back a few notches and the police shooting scene could have some genuine weight behind it.

Although their commitment to the clown theme is really quite admirable, with some truly awful wordplay at work: 'Clown Tube' (that's just lazy), 'Ronald Klump' and 'The Clown House' (I wonder to whom they are referring), and 'System of a Clown' (actually, this one is great and almost made me forgive them entirely).

It did provoke a reaction from trump, though, and anything that hurts his pride is a success. I guess sometimes you have to fight dumb with dumb.
