“Well, the only thing I want to say about that whole scenario is that I want to give both of them a shout-out for raising the bar as far as lyrics, as far as song making and writing because the writing has been upped since the confrontation,” he said. “Those are my nephews. I’m not in the middle of it. I support both of them and that’s personal business, not my business.”

Finally, Snoop added, “As far as what they did for the industry and the rap game, they made you rap again. You can’t mumble your way and gimmick your way to a song no more, buddy. So thank y’all.”

If you remember, the West Coast legend was taken aback by Drake’s “Taylor Made Freestyle” in a video he posted on Instagram April 20, saying, “They did what? When? How? Are you sure? [Sighs] Y’all have a good night and too all … [Laughs]… Why everybody calling my phone, blowing me up? What the f—k? What happened? What’s going on? I’m going back to bed. Good night.” He then reposted a fan-made clip of the song on his IG Story.

Snoop saying he’s not in the middle of the beef is interesting, though, since his voice was used by Drake in a troll job gone awry as he tried to rush Kendrick into responding to “Push Ups.” The Toronto rapper was eventually forced to take down “Taylor Made Freestyle” by the Tupac estate after being threatened with litigation.
