Snoop Dogg slams Kanye West and 'racist' Donald Trump in vulgar rant
Kanye West shocked the world when he tweeted he loved Donald Trump, a man accused of racism, sexism, pathological lying, a lack of empathy and having a weird-looking dong. How could Kanye, a supposed man of the people, support a president whose policies only seem to benefit the 1%? How could the guy who said "George Bush doesn't care about black people" say 400 years of slavery "sounded like a choice"? Hip-hop fans were outraged! That is, until Yeezy dropped his new album. That was dope, so they bumped it. But deep down, still outraged!
In interviews with Charlemagne, Kimmel, and Chicago's 107.5, Kanye tried to clarify his words. He apologized for his slavery comment, and said he doesn't love President Trump because of his policies. He loves Trump because of his personality, his "dragon energy", the fact that such a provocateur became president. Also, black people aren't monolithic; they don't have to be Democrats; they can be Republicans; be a free thinker! I'm not sure how it's "free thinking" to passionately support a controversial politician, while not being aware of their policies, but whatever. Still here for the music!
Kanye's walked back his most controversial remarks, but his stubborn Trump support continues to make waves in the industry. During a Siriux XM interview, Snoop Dogg was asked about politics, and went on a vulgar rant, slamming Kanye and "racist" Trump. The 46-year-old rapper is usually so chill, making funky party songs and that charming cooking show with Martha Stewart. Not in this interview. Thanks a lot, Yeezy and Donald - you broke Snoop Dogg!
Speaking about Mr. West, Snoop said, "Well you need to know that a lot of your fans is racist. Ain't no f*cking way around it. I tell 'em straight up muthaf*cker. If you like that n**** [Trump] you muthaf*cken racist. F*ck you and f*ck him. Now what? N**** he drew the lines. He drew the muthaf*ckin’ lines. Before him there were no lines."
The Doggystyle rapper believes that since Trump took office, racism has become a bigger problem: "[Before 2017] everybody was everybody, we respected every thing, we didn't trip, but n**** when you drew the line and start pointing muthaf*cker out and singling them out n*** f*ck y’all then n****. You and them. Kanye too. Don't forget about him too. F*** you too. Throw him in the bag, 'cause he right there with the muthaf*cker."
Snoop's no stranger to criticizing Trump. Last November, he released the Make America Crip Again EP, which featured him standing over Trump's dead body on the cover. Before that, he made the music video for Lavender (Nightfall Remix), which featured a clown dressed as Donald Trump getting shot. However, he strongly defended his art to Billboard magazine:
"The ban that this motherf*ckr tried to put up; him winning the presidency; police being able to kill motherf*ckers and get away with it; people being in jail for weed for 20, 30 years and motherf*cker that’s not black on the streets making money off of it; but if you got color or ethnicity connected to your name, you’ve been wrongfully accused or locked up for it, and then you watching people not of color position themselves to get millions and billions off of it."
So, to summarize, Snoop Dogg and Kanye West probably won't be collaborating any time soon. Sad!
