Rapper Snoop Dogg went on the attack against fellow hip-hop artist Kanye West this week, slamming West's music and referring to him as an "Uncle Tom" for supporting and defending President Donald Trump.
What are the details?
On Monday, music producer DJ Pooh posted an Instagram thread showing a picture of West wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat with the caption, "MAGA - Music Ain't Getting Attention."
Snoop — whose real name is Calvin Broadus — weighed in along with thousands of others to mock West, posting, "Make ya music great again n***a. Uncle Tom ass n*****."
West is taking heat after defending Trump during "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend. During his speech, West criticized Hollywood and the media, accused Democrats of wanting to keep black people on welfare, and expressed his support for Trump while the audience booed.
Snoop Dogg has been critical of West's backing of the president for weeks. During a radio interview with DJ Suss for Sirius XM in mid-September, Snoop said that anyone who supports Donald Trump is a "racist."
He went on to say, "If you like that n***a [Trump] you motherf***in' racist. F*** you and f*** him. ... Kanye too. Don't forget about him too. F*** you too. Throw him in the bag, he right with them motherf***ers."
What happened next?
But Snoop Dogg seemed ready to mend fences with West within a few hours of Monday's Instagram slam, following up with a picture of West wearing a MAGA hat and a shirt with Snoop Dogg's image on it. Snoop Dogg captioned the post, "Forgiveness is everything."
