SNOOP Dogg has been accused of throwing his rapper friend Tupac under the bus during a discussion about the late rapper’s use of misogynistic lyrics.
The Drop It Like It’s Hot hitmaker was speaking to actress Jada Pinkett-Smith about hip hop music’s use of misogynistic and derogatory terms to describe.
Snoop Dogg has been accused of throwing his rapper friend Tupac under the bus
The rapper admitted that he sometimes butted heads with his frequent collaborator and close friend about the use of the word b**** and h**.
He explained on Red Table Talk: “Even me and Pac got into it because he was like, he wanted me to stay gangsta.”
“I was like, cuz, I got a baby on the way, I just beat a murder case, I have a lot to live for. He had no kids.”
RTT co-host Jada admitted: “Pac and I used to get into his usage of b**** and h**, we got into it hardcore.”
The rapper claims he argued with his friend about using misogynistic lyrics
Snoop jumped in and replied: “Yeah because he could give you this beautiful record and then turn around [and use those terms].”
“But we was torn though because he wasn’t talking about you, but he had to talk to those that was out there.”
Jada then said: “Here’s the thing though, he tried his best to define for me the definition of b*** and h**. Of course, it made no sense.”

Fans were too impressed with the comments as one wrote: “Did #SnoopDogg try to throw the GREAT #Tupac name under the bus during that Red Table interview??? Lol F*** that Old N****!”
While another wrote: “Snoop is jealous of Pac! Snoop is a whole snake for this!”
One commented: “Sucka for mentioning PAC, what does pac have to do with any of this!”
Jada Pinkett-Smith revealed she also had similar conversations with the late rapper
One Instagram user commented: “When they decide to go after Tupac in full force for his alleged past, Jada will lead the charge with pitchforks against her “friend” Watch. That sit-down Red Table Talk with Snoop Dogg was a test run.”
However one fan defended Snoop as they wrote: “Tupac is not even alive so why did he throw him under the bus he just brought up some past stuff that’s all he did why y’all getting all uncomfortable.”
Meanwhile, another part of the Red Table Talk episode saw Jada blast the rapper attacking Gayle King over her interview about Kobe Bryant following his tragic death.
She admitted his online tirade over the anchor’s questioning made her “heart drop.”

Jada said: “When you first came out and you said what you said, you know in regards to Gayle, my heart dropped.
“I felt like not only were you talking to Gayle but you were talking to me. I was like oh no Snoop has now taken his power flow away from me, away from Willow, away from my mother.”
The 48-year-old rapper said he was out of line for his recent rant against King, after she raised Kobe Bryant’s rape accusation in an interview
Gayle accepted Snoops apology from the California rapper
She went on: “…I was like if this is what’s happening. I was like not Snoop, right.
“And so that’s one of the reasons why I felt like I really wanted to have the conversation with you in the spirit of healing.”
This comes after the recent fallout between the rapper and the CBS This Morning anchor over an interview following the shocking death of Kobe Bryant.
Kobe passed away along with his daughter Gigi on January 26, 2020 in a tragic helicopter crash leaving behind wife Vanessa and three daughters
Gayle had asked Kobe’s close friend Lisa Leslie about his 2003 sexual assault case.
After the interview aired Snoop Dogg went on a rant in his Instagram story saying: “You ain’t coming after f*****g Harvey Weinstein asking him dumb-a** questions. I get sick of you all…

Snoop admitted he overreacted and acted disrespectful
“I wanna call you one … Funky, dog-haired b***h, how dare you try and tarnish my motherf*****g homeboy’s reputation, punk motherf****r.
“Respect the family and back off, b***h, before we come get you.”
Snoop has since apologized for his harsh criticism on social media.
In turn, Gayle accepted the apology in a statement obtained by New York Magazine.
