BUA posed Snoop Dogg like a general in the army.  Like the great Neo-classicist painter Jacques Louis David’s painting of Napoleon Bonaparte.

BUA portrays Snoop with one hand inserted in his pocket as a sign of power and austerity. But unlike David BUA does it in an ironic way.  Napoleon’s need to assert himself as an egotistical powerful man is clearly to cover up his Napoleonic complex. However, Snoop feels confident, tall, and proud as he slowly reaches for his gat. Staged in Inglewood California with a backdrop of downtown LA. We see graffiti on the walls, laundry drying in the dusty sunset, and a dilapidated suburban landscape. Snoop stands probably in the foreground as if he prepares for his next conquest in his Doggy Dog life.

Excerpt from BUA:

With Snoop there are no limitations or boundaries. Snoop Snoop Doggcan do everything and anything he wants as if he is almost above and beyond the law. One day he’s a soccer dad the next day he’s spitting Gansta rap in lyrical ciphers. The next day he is in a rated G movie and days later he’s on trial for murder. For anyone else in the world they would be ridiculed for their moral contradictions but somehow and someway he is adored by white soccer moms and thugs alike. He can do no wrong because he is the epitome of cool.
