Snoop Dogg Tells Kanye West and Donald Trump Supporters: “F*ck You”
Hip-hop—like America as a whole—is pretty divided right now. In April, Kanye West returned to Twitter, where he voiced his support for Donald Trump and a number of alt-right ideas. Then, he made the baffling comment that “slavery is a choice.” While he’s apologized for the slavery comment (in an extremely Kanye way, mind you), he still remains a Trump supporter.
In an interview with DJ Suss One on SiriusXM, Snoop Dogg weighed in on West’s support of the President.
“I don’t give a fuck. I tell ’em straight up, motherfucker. If you like that n—a, you motherfuckin’ racist. Fuck you and fuck him. Now what? He drew the lines. Before him, there were no lines. Everybody was everybody, we respected everything, we didn’t trip,” Snoop Dogg said. “When you drew the line and start pointing motherfuckers out and singling them out, fuck y’all then, n—a. You and them. Kanye too. Don’t forget about him too. Fuck you too. Throw him in the bag, he right with them motherfuckers.”
Harsh words, for sure. And it’s a stance that some in hip-hop are hesitant to take. Given his power in the industry, many rappers are forgiving of West’s political views. Look at responses from Teyana Taylor, Chance the Rapper, Kid Cudi, Pusha-T, and Nas—all of whom worked with West this year on new releases. They can’t go after West this hard. While many artists have provided measured, constructive responses to West’s Trump endorsement, this is one of the most high profile harsh attacks on West so far.
Even during their nasty feud, Drake never went this hard on West and Trump.
Maybe this could be the year’s next great hip-hop feud. Certainly the Machine Gun Kelly and Eminem beef got old fast.
