Amrican rapper Snoop Dogg has in an interview with The Sunday Times this weekend, changed his thoughts and drops his beef with former president Donald Trump.
This comes after years of something that looks like a feud the rapper had with the former president, who is currently preparing to run again in the upcoming 2024 elections.
Putting an end to his trolling of Trump days behind, Snoop in the interview revealed that he now has “nothing but love and respect” for him.
This us what the legendary rapper on Sunday January 28th, told The Times; “Donald Trump? He ain’t done nothing wrong to me. He has done only great things for me. He pardoned Michael Harris.”
Speaking about Harris, he is a co-founder of Snoop’s first label, Death Row Records, who was imprisoned for drug trafficking and attempted murder, according to The New York Times. Trump pardoned Harris in January 2021.
“So I have nothing but love and respect for Donald Trump,” Snoop Dogg, 52, added.
Before this revelation, Snoop Dogg had frequently criticized Trump’s contentious viewpoints. In 2017, he sparked a response from the former president by releasing a music video for “Lavender,” featuring BADBADNOTGOOD.
The video depicted Snoop aiming a gun at a clown resembling Trump, which he then fired to reveal a red flag with the word “BANG” on it. Trump’s attorney expressed shock at the video and demanded an apology, with Trump himself even suggesting that Snoop should face arrest.
Later that year, he released a song titled “Make America Crip Again” – a riff on Trump’s trademark campaign slogan “Make America Great Again”.
He said in the song’s opening line: “The president said he wants to make America great again. F* that s*, we’re going to make America crip again.”
The Crips, also known by their moniker Original Crip Homies, are a predominantly African-American gang who were founded in Los Angeles back in 1969.
He said in a statement: “Certain people feel like we should make America ‘great again,’ but that time they’re referring to always takes me back to separation and segregation, so I’d rather Make America Crip Again.
“What I mean by that is, in my lifetime, that’s when young Black men in impoverished areas organised to help their communities and to take care of their own because society basically left them for dead.”
Elsewhere, in 2018, Snoop shared a video in which he could be seen smoking a blunt outside the White House, exclaiming: “F*** the president.”
