Snoop Dogg, speaking on Fox Sports 1’s ‘Undisputed’

Can Colin Kaepernick be a championship football player and a social revolutionary at the same time?  Snoop Dogg says it’s time to pick a lane.

Snoop Dogg hands out 3,000 turkeys every Thanksgiving in Inglewood, California.  Colin Kaepernick, quarterback for the 49ers, refuses to sing the National Anthem while praising Fidel Castro.

So who’s making the bigger societal impact?

Now, Snoop Dogg is offering some sage advice to the embattled QB who’s on-field performance is getting scrutinized.  Speaking on Fox Sports’ ‘Undisputed,’ the Snoop Dogg said that Colin Kaepernick ultimately must choose a lane.  “In the beginning, I understood it thoroughly,” Snoop relayed.  “I’m one who’s had situations with police.  I deal with it and I understand where he was coming from.”

“But at the same time, you have to really stand for it.  And I don’t believe he can do that and play football at the same time.  There are too many rules and regulations and things that he has to deal with as opposed to being a revolutionary.”

The comments come as Kaepernick finds himself embroiled over comments made about Fidel Castro.  Upon his passing, the quarterback praised the dictator for high literacy rates in Cuba, and strong investments in education.  Pressed by a reporter in Miami, Kaepernick then contrasted the Cuban system as superior to conditions in the United States.

“One thing that Fidel Castro did do is they have the highest literacy rate because they invest more in their education system than they do in their prison system, which we do not do here, even though we’re fully capable of doing that,” Kaepernick stated.

That comment was soon dialed back, though Kaepernick’s credibility took a major hit.  “Trying to push the false narrative that I was a supporter of the oppressive things Castro did is just not true,” Kaepernick blasted back.  “I said I support the investment in education, I never said I support the oppressive things Castro did.”

And what about that offensive strategy next Sunday?  That’s part of Snoop’s point.  Not only does a focus on revolutionary debate have nothing to do with football, it’s also frowned upon by NFL owners.  And faced with declining ratings and mediocre on-field performance, Kaepernick’s soapbox could soon disappear.

“If this is what he wants to do, then he needs to just do that full time,” Snoop continued.

“And leave football out of it.”

    I love Snoop Dogg, and now Im looking for the easiest way to get into making beats. I’m thinking hip hop or rap because I already have a few ideas in my head. Im not experienced though… What do you recommend at a lower price point that will get me going? Any feedback will be apreciated… I have found this software and I wanna know if it is good to produce rap music beats: [youtube
