Snoop Gives Brutally Honest Advice To Kanye West About The Women In His Life (Video)
Over the last few weeks, Kanye West has drawn the ire of seemingly everyone, at one time or another. Whether it was due to his ongoing support of Donald Trump, his release of music seemingly designed to troll or outlandish comments about slavery, West’s popularity is now at an all-time low.
The reaction from celebrities has been mixed. Charlamagne Tha God, who interviewed West for nearly 2 hours recently, has encouraged people not to abandon Kanye. Long-time peers and collaborators like John Legend tried to reason with Kanye privately, only to have their correspondence leaked by Kanye on social media. Of Ye’s many public detractors, Snoop Dogg has been particularly vocal, and his words have been both cutting and caring.
During a recent trip to The Breakfast Club, Snoop reacted forcefully when asked about West. Rather than focus on Kanye’s mental health, possible thirst for attention or other internal motivations for his behavior, Snoop spoke about the impact of those around Kanye and, equally importantly, those not around the embattled MC/producer. “What I’m saying is, and I hate to be Black and White…There’s no Black women in his life. Let’s just keep that 100. That’s real. I got aunties, and they’ll pull up with them big church hats on [like] ‘What’s happenin’??!! What you on?? You bullsh*ttin’, Nephew. We taught you way better than that’,” he says, explaining that he has Black women in his life who would not be tolerant of the type of behavior recently exhibited by West.
Like many, Snoop also attributes the void in Kanye’s life to the loss of his mother. “Remember the music he was making when she was here, and the spirit that he had? That’s gone now, and if you never lost your mother, you don’t understand that feeling. So, I had to sympathize with that and say ‘You know what? Maybe the women around him should look into getting him some help from some women that’s stronger than them.'”
Snoop’s comments are clearly directed at the Kardashian/Jenners, and he goes on to suggest there’s a pattern of men who have deteriorated in their presence. “If you look at the people that went into that house, with their minds straight…Let’s go to Lamar Odom. Let’s go to Kanye West. Let’s go to Rob Kardashian.” When Odom began dating Khloe Kardashian, sister to Kanye’s wife Kim, he was a successful NBA basketball player, but by the end of their relationship, he was suffering from severe substance abuse that lead to a near death experience. Rob Kardashian, brother to Kim and Khloe, has slowly unraveled before the public’s eyes. Similarly, Kanye was at his creative apex, having just released My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, shortly before he became involved with Kim.
Snoop then contrasts the men in the household with the women. “The women [are] on point. Million dollar deals. Walking the runway. Selling makeup, emojis…” When Breakfast Club host Angela Yee asks, given Snoop’s theory, whether people should be concerned about Travis $cott, who recently had a child with Kardashian sister Kylie Jenner, Snoop says “Mmm hmm. Y’all better get that cup of tea away from that ni**a,” a sly reference to the method used by a character in the film Get Out to hypnotize and break the broken protagonist.
The Breakfast Club interview is the latest for Snoop, who has been on a tour promoting his recent Gospel album, Bible Of Love, as well as other projects. Earlier in the week, Uncle Snoop showed off his impeccable freestyle skills, as he and Jamie Foxx effortlessly crafted a song on the spot.
