Donald Trump's officially started beef with Snoop Dogg


This is like Biggie vs Tupac all over again. It’s East Coast vs West Coast and the beef is very much on, as Donald Trump again used his vast amounts of free time to lash out at Snoop Dogg for a video he perceived to be dissing him.

Yes, this is real life, yes this is really happening, and yes, one of these men is the President of the United States of America.

The tweet comes in response to a new video released on Sunday for the Nightfall Remix of Lavender, by BadBadNotGood, featuring Kaytranada and Snoop Dogg, which includes a whole load of clowns, including a ‘clown Trump’ which Snoop ‘shoots’ with a toy gun.

It’s a great track and while the video skirts close to the line, the crucial scene is clearly meant to be taken with a large dose of humour – albeit with a serious message behind it.

A sense of humour, however, is not really something that Donald Trump seems to possess.

Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen previously told TMZ: “It’s totally disgraceful. Snoop owes the President an apology.

“There’s absolutely nothing funny about an assassination attempt on a president, and I’m really shocked at him, because I thought he was better than that… I certainly would not have accepted it if it was President Obama. I certainly don’t accept it as President Trump, and in all fairness, it’s not funny, it’s not artistic.”

Even if you don’t think it’s funny, it’s definitely artistic, so you’re talking nonsense on that one mate.

He continued: “Just because you want to hide behind the guise of artistic capabilities or artistic freedom of speech doesn’t make it right. Snoop knows that, and he played very close to the line here.”

Exactly. Close to the line, but not over it, although more than close enough to nudge the Donald into one of his regular Twitter hissy fits.

For his part, Snoop told Billboard: "The whole world is clownin’ around, and [Jesse’s] concept is so right on point with the art direction and the reality, because if you really look at some of these motherfuckers, they are clowns."

He also ran through his list of grievances with the President: "The ban that this motherfucker tried to put up; him winning the presidency; police being able to kill motherfuckers and get away with it; people being in jail for weed for 20, 30 years and motherfuckers that’s not black on the streets making money off of it – but if you got colour or ethnicity connected to your name, you’ve been wrongfully accused or locked up for it, and then you watching people not of colour position themselves to get millions and billions off of it. It’s a lot of clown shit going on that we could just sit and talk on the phone all day about, but it’s a few issues that we really wanted to lock into [for the video] like police, the President and just life in general." 

He continued: “When I be putting shit out, I don’t ever expect or look for a reaction. I just put it out because I feel like it’s something that’s missing. Any time I drop something, I’m trying to fill in a void. I feel like it’s a lot of people making cool records, having fun, partying, but nobody’s dealing with the real issue with this fucking clown as president, and the shit that we dealing with out here, so I wanted to take time out to push pause on a party record and make one of these records for the time being.”

Your move Snoop – we’re ready for the next episode.
