Snoop tweeted his endorsement.
In her retweet, Aboushi, showing she knows the lingo, thanked the “original gangsta” icon for his nod “all the way from the LBC!” meaning from Long Beach/Compton, California, where the rapper grew up and honed his flow.
In a statement, Aboushi’s campaign said, “Snoop Dogg, like Tahanie, has the lived experience and understanding of how the district attorney’s offices can destroy and destabilize Black and Brown communities. They aren’t strangers to the justice system and have histories of speaking out against oppressive institutions of power. With just three weeks until the primary election, Snoop’s endorsement is representative of the momentum and nationwide attention Tahanie’s campaign is receiving.”
