Snoop on Kanye: “He Doesn’t Have No Black Women in His Life”
Veteran rapper Snoop Dogg dropped plenty of jewels during his interview on Power 105.1’s "The Breakfast Club" on Friday morning (May 18).
The Doggfather discussed a myriad of topics with DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne tha God, including his first gospel album Bible Love and his earlier days on Death Row Records. But Snoop also shared his thoughts on Kanye West's weird behavior as of late. He infamously clowned West on his Instagram account by posting a photo of him as a white man.
While the West Coast legend respects West, he feels that the rapper-producer lost his support system, namely his deceased mother, Dr. Donda West, who passed away in 2007.
“I look at the rappers in the game that have wives that have strong women in their lives, and they’re stable up top too. Their mental is strong,” he explains. "I’m just saying, and I hate to make this a black and white thing, but [Kanye] doesn’t have any black women in his life...and that’s when I start to think about how [his mother] was instrumental in his life."
"If you never lost your mother, you will never know that feeling," he said. "So I had to sympathize with that. Maybe the women around Kanye should be looking to get him some help from women that are stronger than them," he continued. If I'm not the strongest person in my house, I'm going to seek some strength [by talking to Charlie Wilson or Bootsy Collins]."
"You can be afraid to go seek help; you can't feel like nobody can help you," he added.
As for his thoughts on today's crop of young rhyme-spitters, Snoop said that the previous generation of are rappers to blame for the younger artists not knowing or caring about hip-hop culture.
“I believe it is our fault, the generation of the '90s because we did not teach," he said. "We got the game, got control of it, and we did not bother to teach like it was taught to us."
"So, when the next generation gets ahold of it if they’re not taught, they’re going to teach themselves," he continued. "And I’m one of the ones who didn’t teach. That’s why I take the time to teach now because I understand as a grown man I can fall into the position of ‘Uncle Snoop.’"
