Snoop Dogg Has ‘Nothing But Love And Respect’ For Trump As Feud Goes Up In Smoke

Snoop Dogg now says he has “nothing but love and respect” for Donald Trump, apparently putting aside any beef that he had with the former president.

The rapper and actor, who was born Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., shared with the Sunday Times his current view on Trump, who is in the middle of running another campaign for the White House.

“Donald Trump? He ain’t done nothing wrong to me,” Snoop Dogg said, according to the Daily Mail. “He has done only great things for me. He pardoned Michael Harris. So I have nothing but love and respect for Donald Trump.”

Just before leaving office in January of 2021, Trump commuted the sentence of Death Row Records co-founder Michael “Harry O” Harris, among others in the Hip Hop community, after he spent roughly 30 years in prison on attempted murder and drug-trafficking charges.

Snoop Dogg, whose career took off under the Death Row Record banner and has since purchased the record label, played a roll in pushing for Harris to get freedom, the Daily Beast reported.

After the release, Snoop Dogg praised the “great work” by Trump and his team for granting clemency to Harris. “Let them know that I love what they did,” Snoop Dogg said in a Zoom call, per the New York Post. “It is amazing what the work of God can actually bring to life to make people understand that there is a God.”

Snoop Dogg made headlines in 2017 when he released the music video for a song named Lavender in which he shot a clown dressed as Trump in the head with a toy gun. Billboard reported him saying the “whole world is clownin’ around” and listing gripes with Trump and the treatment of minorities by the criminal justice system.

Trump fired back after the music video came out, posting a tweet from the official account of the president that said, “Can you imagine what the outcry would be if [Snoop Dogg], failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!”

Among other instances of animosity between the pair included Snoop Dogg posting a video to social media of himself in 2018 smoking what appeared to be a blunt outside the White House and saying “f***” Trump.

Snoop Dogg trolled President Joe Biden, who may be headed toward a rematch of 2020 against Trump in this year’s general election, with a post to Instagram in 2022 showing the image of a “Sleepy Joe OG” strain of weed.
