Last year, Snoop Dogg made headlines as one of Hip Hop’s most prominent critics of President Donald Trump. The veteran rapper has made comments about 45 in his interviews, music videos, etc. but now he’s done antagonizing the commander-in-chief.
In an interview for TV One’s Uncensored, Snoop explained will he will no longer be reserving his energy to diss Trump.
“You don’t answer to politics with negativity and the same energy that they have, because you’ll never win,” Snoop said. “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 said he realized that coming for Trump was only playing his game because he loves the attention.
“I felt the way y’all feel,” he noted. “Because this president, whatever color you are, is very disrespectful to you as a human being. We took a few stands on him. Put a few pieces up, videos and threw a few shots at him. But I felt, that’s going nowhere fast ’cause he loves that.”
Snoop continued, “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 of what he is.”
