Like other rap artists before him, Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr.—better known by his professional name Snoop Dogg—expanded his resume beyond music. The rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, television personality, actor and soon to be cookbook author now adds political commentator to that list.
In an appearance on the Sirius XM radio show Hip Hop Nation, host DJ Suss One began to broach the subject of President Donald Trump with his guest Snoop Dogg. DJ Suss One apologized, then retracted his apology stating:
“All right, now politics real quick now. We all here now—I apologize—naw, I really don’t apologize man, because a lot of my fans get mad at me when I talk bad about him, but I don’t. I think it’s safe to say most people in our culture do not…”
Snoop Dogg interjected:
“Well, you need to know that, you need to know that a lot of your fans is racist. Ain’t no f***ing way around it. Don’t even try to put no cut around it.”
When DJ Suss One indicated he would not go so far, Snoop Dogg reasserted:
“I do. I don’t give a f***. I tell ’em straight up. Motherf***r, if you like that n***a, you motherf***ing racist, f*** you and f*** him. Now what?”
DJ Suss One acknowledged Snoop Dogg’s view and the rapper continued with his point. Snoop Dogg stated:
“Draw the line, n***a. He drew the lines.”
“Exactly,” DJ Suss One concurred. Snoop Dogg continued:
“He drew the motherf***ing lines. Before him, there were no lines. Everybody was everybody. We respected everything; we didn’t trip. But n***a, when you drew the line and start pointing motherf***rs out and singling them out, f*** y’all n***a. You and them.”
“Yeah, that’s how I feel,” DJ Suss One replied, “if you’re just tuning in…” Snoop Dogg interjected again to state:
“Kanye [West] too, n***a. Don’t forget about him too. F*** you too.”
“Well,” DJ Suss One said, “this is what I was gonna say about that. I was going to bring up Kanye.”
“Yeah,” Snoop Dogg agreed, “throw him in the bag too ‘cuz he right with them motherf***s.”
Then the show host said he needed to ask about Snoop Dogg’s appearance at the 2011 Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump. The rapper stated he was there roasting Trump and getting paid. Seth MacFarlane, another frequent critic of President Trump, hosted the roast back in 2011, before Trump officially entered politics.
The video of the interview excerpt hit 100,000 views in about 24 hours. Reactions online were mixed.
Some called Snoop Dogg irrelevant since he had not recently released any albums, although only on the Fox News post of the story. Quite a few Fox News responses also veered into proving Snoop Dogg’s assertions about Trump’s support base.
Snoop Dogg has a dying, mediocre career, desperate to stay relevant!

Let me get this straight, now gangsta rappers, who should actually be in jail for major crimes from the past, are relevant with respect to political discourse.

snoop dogg is a gangster thug with a little ability to rap. Dresses like a clown. Mildly interesting what he has to say about President Trump. And Kanye, the real deal. Not afraid to speak his honest mind and say that he supports our President. MAGA!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

If anyone has divided this country it’s the Democrats and the former thug president. But what can we expect from another thug that still lives on the plantation.
