Leave it to West Coast hip-hop icon (and everyone’s favorite hip-hop uncle) Snoop Dogg to be the much-needed comedic relief in the midst of Kanye West and Drake’s explosive internet war on Thursday (December 13).
In a nutshell, Kanye aired Drizzy out in a mile-long Twitter rant for some shady behind-the-scenes behavior. The GOOD Music leader accused the OVO Sound honcho of violent (and potentially deadly) threats against him, sub-shots in private, and faux smiles in public—essentially exposing Drizzy as a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Ye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, stuck her nose in the tomfoolery, prompting a dutiful drag from hip-hop heads and OVO stans alike for the entire social media universe to witness.
From the looks of it, the involved parties are stubbornly standing their grounds and don’t plan to come to a middle one anytime soon. But Uncle Snoop has one person in mind he thinks may be able to bring everyone a step closer to that.
Snoop called on Hollywood’s revered psychologist and talk show host, Dr. Phil. He left the comment beneath the Instagram celebrity gossip hub’s coverage of Kim’s aforementioned shots at Drake where she boldly stated that Kanye “paved the way” for him and warned him never to threaten her hubby.
The Make America Crip Again rapper might actually be on to something here.
We second that one, Uncle Snoop.
