West coast rapper Snoop Dogg recently weighed in on Kanye West's Video Music Awards 2009 rant saying Yeezy was probably intoxicated when he hit the stage.
Appearing on "The Hour," Snoop briefly touched on Yeezy's show-stopping move towards country singer Taylor Swift last Sunday (September13).
"Kanye West," Snoop responded when asked 'Name one person you think needs a swift kick in the a**. "Yeah, [that was crazy]. It is what it is, I think it was the Hennessey. Blame it on the alcohol. [laughs]" ("The Hour")
Early reports suggested Yeezy may have been drunk during the awards show.
An apparently drunk Kanye West callously stole the spotlight from country superstar Taylor Swift, moments after she won at the MTV Video Music Awards. Swift was giving her acceptance speech after copping the award for Best Female Video when West stormed onto the Radio City Music Hall stage, stole the microphone and dissed the beautiful young songbird.

Raekwon also spoke in an interview this week saying Yeezy should have thought twice before stealing the microphone during an awards acceptance speech.
"Why he do that, man?," Raekwon asked in an interview. "Come on man, that was a f*cking little girl, B. It's like nah, that was some sucker sh*t, I ain't respect that right there man. I ain't respect that...Lil Mama was on some Brooklyn sh*t the other night, yeah. I thought she was supposed to come out, nah? It is what it is, I looked at it as a Brooklyn thing. She from Brooklyn, Jay from Brooklyn, you know, I guess they were just feeling themselves right then and there though...I'm sure that everybody ridiculing Kanye or Lil, uh, you nah mean, Lil Mama, [the late Ol' Dirty Bastard] was in the same position. He pioneered that beasting the stage sh*t. He pioneered that, word. And that's my whole, it's like, I like Kanye too, he a cool cat but yo, that right there, he either had to be drunk or he felt like 'F*ck that, I own the awards.' But I don't think that was fair to her as a teenager. It's one thing to do it with some n*ggas, then it's like, 'Aight, cool,' but to do it against a little white pretty little teenager, nah, that wasn't really cool." ("Los Angeles Leakers")
Yeezy reportedly spoke with Swift following the country singer's "The View" appearance Tuesday morning.
Representatives from "The View" said West called Swift after her appearance on today's show, and she accepted his apology. Swift later told ABC News Radio, "Kanye did call me and he was very sincere in his apology, and I accepted that apology." (ABC News)
