Snoop Dogg Hails Kendrick Lamar as “The King Of The West”

Snoop Dogg has expressed his admiration for Kendrick Lamar’s recent “Pop Out” concert, noting its significance despite not being there in person.

Kendrick Lamar’s “Pop Out” concert on Juneteenth in Los Angeles is set to be one of 2024’s major hip-hop events. The enthusiastic response from the West Coast could make it one of the year’s biggest cultural moments. Snoop Dogg, an iconic figure in L.A., recently endorsed the event and Kendrick Lamar. Interestingly, Snoop was in Canada during the concert, the home turf of Kendrick’s current rival, Drake. However, Snoop’s focus was entirely on the positive impact of the concert, ignoring the ongoing feud.


In his message to Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg said, “Top of the morning, Big Snoop Dogg coming at you live from Canada. Sending a big shoutout to K.Dot and all the homies from the West that stood together, unified, organized, in peace [and] love. That was beautiful, that was fun to watch. Beautiful to see all of my peoples coming together. And, um, K.Dot… you are the king of the west. That’s the kind of s**t kings do: we unite. We bring our peoples together.”

This praise comes amidst the complex dynamics of Snoop Dogg’s stance in the Kendrick Lamar and Drake rivalry. Drake used an A.I. Snoop verse in his “Taylor Made Freestyle” diss, and Death Row, Snoop’s former label, is now under OVO-affiliated Gamma. Despite these connections, Snoop Dogg has shown loyalty to his West Coast roots through social media posts and public statements. While it’s a nuanced situation, it’s evident Snoop holds both artists in high regard.

Snoop Dogg featured on Drake’s latest album “For All The Dogs,” showing his support for both sides of the beef. However, his recent comments highlight the importance of West Coast unity over rap conflicts. Despite lingering questions, Snoop’s emphasis on unity and the greater good stands out, proving some things are more significant than choosing sides in a feud.
