Rapper Snoop Dogg is reportedly refusing to back down in his feud with Iggy Azalea, taking to social media today in order to further aggravate the Australian entertainer. A member of Tha Dogg Pound, an American rap duo who have extremely close ties with Snoop Dogg himself, has given an exclusive statement to popular gossip website TMZ in which he rallies in support for the rapper, offering his opinion that Azalea is nowhere near on the level she believes she is.
Daz Dallinger says that the 24-year-old has absolutely no business starting conflict with top-tier rappers such as Snoop Dogg, as she has not yet earned the privilege of even being considered in the same category. He claims that the rapper could care less about the fact that Azalea is upset with him, and plans to pay her upset towards his Instagram diss absolutely no mind whatsoever. Dallinger also puts the singer on blast for reportedly telling a lie that her bodyguard had saved the life of Snoop Dogg’s friend while he was residing in a Canadian hotel that had caught on fire, claiming that he was actually the one to kick door the room’s door and pull the man from the potentially fatal flames. He goes on to allege that Azalea and her bodyguard had already left the premises by the time knowledge broke out that there was a dangerous situation at hand. Dallinger finished the interview by stating that Azalea had better learn her place soon, or else he and others would set fellow rapper Nicki Minaj on her to inform her of where she truly belongs in the rap world.
The feud began during this past weekend, when Snoop Dogg took to Instagram to post a picture of an albino woman he compared to how Azalea looked without makeup. The Australian rapper hit back almost instantly via Twitter, where she posted an update detailing her fury at the image and at the California rapper for posting such a mean image and claiming the two had a similar likeness. She went on to claim that he got his bodyguards to request pictures be taken with her whenever the two were are the same event, questioning why he would make such an effort to be around her and then follow it up by posting such a mean-spirited picture for no apparent reason. She finished the post by calling him an a**, and informing the rapper that she was incredibly disappointed in his actions. The retort was deleted from the social media website shortly after it had been published, a PR move that was not returned by Snoop Dogg’s camp, who allowed him to leave the aforementioned image up on his Instagram account where it still currently remains. He chose to take the conflict even further in the early afternoon of October 14th, posting yet another picture that yielded his view of Azalea’s likeness to various other individuals, this time posting a composite picture of the rapper and one of the lead characters from the highly rated comedy White Chicks, whom he says shares an uncanny resemblance to Azalea herself.
It remains to be seen how Iggy Azalea feels regarding Snoop Dogg’s latest dig at her appearance, or Daz Dallinger’s statement that she does not know where she belongs in the rap industry. The singer has yet to give any statement regarding the matter, whether via interview or further social media retort.
