If you’re hoping Snoop Dogg will take one more jab at President Donald Trump, consider your hopes dashed. The rapper, whose new gospel album hit no. 1 on the charts, wants to spread love instead of negativity and pettiness.
“You don’t answer to politics with negativity and the same energy that they have, because you’ll never win,” Snoop says on TVOne’s “Uncensored” “This is the system that they designed. You can only beat the system by being the anti and the anti-hate is love, so that’s what we do. Because I hated on the president. I came at him way foul at the beginning.”
Snoop indicated that he got contacted by the federal government after taking jabs at Trump, first by making a clown version of the president in his “Lavender” music video last year and later putting a corpse on his initial version of Snoop’s “Make America Crip Again” cover with “Trump” on the toe tag.
“I felt, that’s going nowhere fast ’cause he loves that,” Snoop continued of the back and forth that saw Trump take issue with the toy gun pointed at his clown incarnation. “He’s one of those guys who he tweeted me for something I did and said my career fell off and then made my career blow up even bigger. I said, ‘This is a dummy. This is a straight dummy.’ Let me leave him alone, cuz, and put some peace in the world and put some love in the world and not focus on him. ‘Cause the devil’s a lie. Just put some peace in the world, and you should unite people of all walks of life and be the anti to what he is.”
Snoop concluded that his world is filled with love despite his gangsta status.
“It’s the most lovable gangsta in the world,” he says.
