When I first saw Dam Funk perform five years ago at the Echoplex I knew he was something special. Freshly signed to one of my favorite labels, Stones Throw Records, Dam took the stage with his keytar in hand and talkbox off to the side — from the moment he played his first note, a light bulb went off in my head and I turned to my group of friends and said, “He HAS to do something with Snoop!”

We’re excited to announce that Snoop Lion and our client, the League of Young Voters, have partnered with urban streetwear line Crooks & Castles for limited-edition No Guns Allowed t-shirts. The t-shirt is an extension of the League of Young Voters’ and Snoop Lion’s anti-violence campaign inspired by Snoop Lion’s “No Guns Allowed” single from his Reincarnated album, which features Drake and his daughter Cori B.
The t-shirt’s visually moving design features a young shooter aiming a gun amidst the iconic Crooks & Castles chain, to symbolize a breaking of the cycle of unfortunate and senseless violence in today’s culture. An alarming statistic states that 40% of Americans have themselves or know someone who has been a victim of gun violence.
