Snoop Dogg recently denied taking subliminal shots at Lil Wayne in his new track "Protocol" and said he has no problems directly addressing conflicts with fellow artists.
From Snoop's perspective, rappers will be name dropped if he is trying to diss them on songs.
"A song about who?," Snoop questioned radio personality Angela Yee. "I don't call n*ggas' names out, you know me babygirl, I'm Snoop Dogg. You ever heard a song I got called 'Pimp Slap' where I went after Suge Knight? If I got any issues, I go after a n*gga's motherf*cking head. I'm not finna shoot at your shoes or shoot at the spot where your baby mama at, I'm finna take your motherf*cking neck off. I don't have problems with no rappers, that was me speaking in general, so if a n*gga feel offended, or feel froggish, leap motherf*cker. Now that's where I'm at with it, so, I never make diss songs, I make hit songs. I'm Snoop Dogg, I've been in it too long. I'm Uncle Snoop." (Shade 45 Lip Service)
Speculation initially grew when Snoop's "Protocol" record was thought to be taking shots at Wayne and Baby.
"Gangsta don't kiss, we get old and die rich," Snoop raps. "I smoke 'til I'm sleep, crush these n*ggas with my fist/Your daddy was a cowards, you's a son of a b*tch/So back to the block with the infra-blue chip/We hit licks and gang bang, you on some T-Pain sh*t." ("Protocol")
Snoop recently touched on his ever-ready rap slaying ability.
"I'm feeling good about life. I'm celebrating, happy about my wife, my kids, life in general. It's just a roller coaster of what I'm going through as I speak. I've always juggled the line, 'Should I make a gangster record? 'Cause I could kill all you rappers if I wanted to,' [and] then I have to sit back and say, 'I'm a business, so I'm gonna make records that can help me in this business.' I have to make radio records, but when I don't care, y'all in trouble." (MTV)
