As previously reported, rapper Snoop Dogg recently shared that he has “nothing but love and respect” for President Trump, marking a significant shift from his previous stance.
In an exclusive interview with The Times published on Sunday, Snoop Dogg, who has had a history of conflict with Trump, especially during the former president’s initial term, surprisingly revealed his change of heart.
“Donald Trump? He ain’t done nothing wrong to me. He has done only great things for me,” the rapper said.
This change of heart, in part, stems from Trump’s decision to grant clemency to Michael “Harry-O” Harris, a co-founder of Death Row Records, Snoop’s first recording label, as reported by The Times.
“So I have nothing but love and respect for Donald Trump,” Snoop Dogg added, referencing this act of clemency.
But that’s not all… Snoop Dogg did not dismiss the possibility of publicly endorsing President Trump.
After telling Big Boy’s Neighborhood in June 2020 that he planned to vote for the first time because he could not stomach “one more year” of Trump’s chaotic rule, the rapper was more circumspect about where his ballot might go in what is expected to be another showdown between Trump and Biden. “I may have to,” Snoop said about whether he feels pressure to declare for a presidential candidate. “Because there are mixed views on that, so I want to see what the people say.”
