Sometimes people say things to me like “wow Kanye really needs to tweet less” and I automatically think they’re blowing things out of proportion. I don’t follow him but he can’t tweet that much, can he?
I just had a look for the sake of this story and jeeeeeeezzz, it’s like getting on a conversation with my niece. Objectively she’s far less confrontational and I’m not sure she knows who Drake is, but it’s the same kind of vibe. Nothing makes sense and there’s a lot to take in.
It almost gets annoying. Sorry, Ava, that’s the last time I compare you to Kanye West.
Anyway, Ye took to Twitter to slate Drake, essentially, saying that the Canadian musician had asked to sample one of Kanye’s songs in his track.
Somehow this got blown hugely out of proportion, Kanye posted screenshots of conversations between the two and kept slagging him off, and it ultimately ended with Drake threatening the veteran rapper. That’s showbiz, baby!
But now a third and more veteran rapper has gotten involved, as Snoop Dogg has weighed in, taking Drake’s side and, to all intents and purpose, telling Kanye to f**k off.
The west coast rapper took to Instagram with a video, saying that Kanye need to get off his phone for once. The video contains what Martin Tyler would refer to as “industrial language”, so watch out for that…

He said, amongst other things:
“Is y’all getting tired of Kanye West and these tweets? ‘Cause I am.
I see why n***a, you and Donald Trump hang out. N***a, y’all tweet like a motherfucker. I think that n***a need Dr. Phil or Maury … You know what? That n***a need Jerry Springer.”
He continued, saying:
“Get your a** off your phone […] and go holla at that n***a in real life. Stop telling the whole fucking world what you’re going through. We don’t give a f**k!“
Don’t sugarcoat it, Snoop. Tell us what you really think.
It’s good to get a levelheaded opinion from a more wizened person, who’s been involved in actual beef with other rappers.
He’s definitely got a point. Kanye is, probably, a musical genius but his presence online and even in real life is very jarring.
