Snoop Dogg is pictured standing over President Trump’s dead body on the cover of his new EP titled, “Make America Crip Again.”

Snoop posted a copy of the cover on Instagram, showing himself holding a party cup while standing over a corpse covered with the American flag and complete with a toe tag reading, “Trump.”

It appears to be an homage to Ice Cube’s 1991 cover for “Death Certificate.”

“The President says he wants to make America great again. F— that s—. We gonna make America crip again,” Snoop raps on the song “M.A.C.A,” Rolling Stone reported.

The rapper, who has spoken out against the president in the past, told the magazine that the album is not meant to be viewed as a political stunt.

“It’s not a statement or a political act: it’s just good music. Certain people feel like we should make America ‘great again,’ but that time they’re referring to always takes me back to separation and segregation so I’d rather Make America Crip Again,” the rapper said earlier this month. “In my lifetime, that’s when young black men in impoverished areas organized to help their communities and to take care of their own because society basically left them for dead.

“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,” he said. “They looked after kids, provided after-school activities, fed them and stepped in as role models and father figures.”

This isn’t the first time Snoop has imagined the death of Mr. Trump. In March, he was filmed shooting a toy gun at a clown dressed as the president in a music video for “Lavender.”

Mr. Trump responded to the video on Twitter, writing, “Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!”
