(CNN) - Days before 22 states are set to hold Democratic primary contests, it appears at least one crucial endorsement is still up for grabs: Rapper Snoop Dogg's.
The rapper and music producer told CNN's Larry King he is torn between both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton's historic candidacies.
"I just want to see somebody win in the best interest of America - whether it be [Obama], a black man, or whether it be Hillary, a woman," Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Cordozar Calvin Broadus, Jr., says in an exclusive interview set to air Friday night.
"Either one is a great move for America," he continued. "We need change. We need somebody in there that's about listening to the people and representing the people. I think both of the candidates will do that."
Snoop Dogg also said he thinks America is ready for a black president, noting Obama is the first African-American with a legitimate chance to win the White House.
"In the past we had presidential candidates like [Rev.] Jesse Jackson. We didn't really think he can win," he said. "Right now people feel like this man could really win. He's got the right thing going for him. He's got the right conversation. He's in line with the right scenario to win. Whether he wins or loses, he made a great step for black America by even stepping to the table and pulling off something like this."

Who cares what Snoop Dogg thinks!
This is a FANTASTIC endorsement of the Republican candidate – whoever that is!
This is one endorsement that Hillary can have...Sen Obama is better off without this one.
All this joker wants to know is which one of the two would federally legalize 'mary-jane'. Why would anyone care what this joker thinks?!
For heaven's sake. . .who is "Snoopy Dog????
let's not forget Barak is half-white .... I'm surprised there aren't more calling him a white candidate. I like Barak, I hate Hillary, ... but I really want to put a dagger into the Right-Wing Evangelists who have ruined our country .. therefore I will vote for Hillary (and I'll also buy stocks of anti-depressant making companies)
Even Snoop Dogg realizes Hillary is ALSO able to bring change...
Shidizzle man, I thought the dude would have endorsed another weed smoker, that just not right man.
Hillarious! When does Frankie Muniz make his endorsement?
You can be for both Clinton/Obama 2008!!!
ok NOW this is becoming too much. CNN has kept my comments in moderation... is slacking on authentic news coverage... and now this.... who cares?????
Political advice from a pothead. Now there is a news story CNN.
Really CNN.... is this news?!? Give me a break.
I am pretty sure Snoop's opinion won't carry much weight either way. Maybe he will pull for Ralph Nadir who is about to join as a third party and take away voters from the democratic base and therefore have a Republican in the White House again.
Don't know why this is a story but it just must be a slow news day....seemingly like every other day....
Honestly....waiting for an endorsement by Snoop Dogg? If you're still wondering which candidate you should choose for and need this 'critical' endorsement to help you decide........do use a favor and don't vote.
Snoop is a true hero of my generation!! I grew up with him on the airwaves and albums. I like his views on this, thank you snoop!
First, why should anybody care who Snoop Dogg supports?
Second, HOW IS IT NEWS that he's not supporting anyone?
Somebody who we shouldn't care about in the first place doesn't have an opinion. STOP THE PRESSES!
Oh great, now we should care what a man who calls women h's and b's thinks about the Presidency... just great.... I guess snoop represents the 'real brother in the hood'?
No wonder he changed his name..........
Awww..me loves Snoop!
Come on CNN.. is this really news? Or are you mocking Snoop Dogg?
are you serious, what will America do if Snoop Dog can not make a choice. We are looking to him to guide us! Come on this is a really ignorant story as if we are sitting on the sidelines waiting for Snoop Dogs approval? Can we hear something more newsworthy?
At least Snopp is a thinker. Not endorseing a person solely on their race.
