Understandably so, Kanye West’s recent political buddying with Donald Trump has roused some ill feelings and bad blood within the hip-hop sphere, and even led some of the Chicago rap icon’s industry mates to split any prospective ties with him.
Tha Dogg Pound flagbearer Daz Dillinger wants to do much more splitting than just a relationship with Yeezy, however, and he’s calling on the nationally notorious Crips street gang to handle the job.
In a video obtained by TMZ, the Long Beach-bred rapper explained his theory of what Kanye has turned into, likening him to the universal Black symbol of shame, an Uncle Tom.
“We all in one boat, and they’re killing all of us,” he analogically explained of Yeezy’s pro-Donald Trump behavior, “and he jump over there and say, ‘Master! I’m on your side, Master! I got all of the information, and I’m with you Master. Burn all these n**gas.”
Daz is even reminded of Stephen from the Jamie Foxx-led blockbuster, Django, when he thinks of Kanye, he referecnes. Legendary film icon Samuel L. Jackson portrays the Uncle Tom-possessed, duplicitous house slave who goes to any level of betrayal against the other slaves for a pat on the head from his white slave master. No shade to the 69-year-old big screen star himself, Daz asserts, but the way he sees it, Kanye is the Sam L. (more fittingly understood, the Stephen) of hip-hop.
“Yo, national alert: all the Crips out there, y’all f**k Kanye up!” he declares. “You see that motherf**ker, f**k his a** up on GP. It’s Crip sh**, n**ga.”
According to TMZ, a threat of that caliber drew the attention of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, however. The site reports that law enforcement were never aware of the threatening video until TMZ phoned in to ask whether they’d be looking into it. Now that they have been tipped off, a source from the Sheriff’s Department allegedly shared that they would be just in case there’s a “prosecutable crime” to be found.
Daz ended his diatribe with another warning to Kanye, telling him never to set foot in the LBC (Long Beach, California) or California, period (except Calabassas). For the rest of the Crips, he’d like to see any one of them “bang on his a**” as he explained if they so happen to catch him.
For the sake of both men, let’s hope this ends well.
