Snoop Dogg on female rappers: ‘It’s more about what she look like’


Hip-hop veteran Snoop Dogg made headlines last month for a brief-but-tense feud with Australian female rapper Iggy Azalea. The West Coast rapper called out Azalea via Instagram, dissing her three times before her mentor T.I. intervened and asked Snoop to back off. Snoop later apologized, but both indicated in recent weeks that they have no interest in working with one another.

Snoop talked about the current state of female rappers while speaking on D.L. Hughley’s radio show recently. He was asked what disappoints him the most about contemporary hip-hop, and Snoop somewhat surprisingly said the lack of respect for female rappers.

“That a female emcee don’t get the respect that she deserves,” Snoop said when he was asked about his disappointments. “It’s more about what she look like than what she sound like.”

Snoop also stated that part of why he’s remained a respected figure in hip-hop is because he’s always shown love.

“I treat everybody with love and eye to eye,” Snoop Dogg says. “That’s why they call me ‘Uncle Snoop’ now instead of ‘Just some old rapper.’ I always treated them with love and respect. No matter how big he was, I always looked at him eye to eye. The younger generation could always appreciate m e… I love hip-hop.”

    snoop is completely correct, nicky minaj has made the competition strange , a business that has targeted children from the start, if your gonna have 50 percent of your audience young adults then just like violence in music had to end so does sexual content ., remy ma and old school artist dont stand a chance because they will have to comply to the sexual standards of putting out a album .. nudity ,……etc
