In the wake of a recent controversy involving an anti-Donald Trump themed video for Snoop Dogg’s version of their track ‘Lavender’, Canadian jazz hip-hop group BadBadNotGood have teamed up with ex-Beastie Boy Mike D for a performance on the musician’s Beats 1 Radio show.
As Consequence Of Sound reports, The Canadian group are set to appear on Mike D’s bi-weekly Beats 1 Radio show this weekend, and in anticipation of the event, have released videos which show the group performing two tracks, with the ex-Beastie Boy on drums for their cover of Galt MacDermot’s ‘Coffee Cold’.
The group also perform a rendition of their track ‘Lavender’ which, as we stated before, has seen some controversy of late, after Snoop Dogg’s version of the track was released with a video which sees the rapper pointing a gun at a fake Donald Trump. The controversy resulted in arguably the lamest rap beef of all time, with Trump taking to Twitter, as he is wont to do, to express his opinions on the matter.
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!
