Snoop Dogg speaks on the ‘Accidental Racist’ controversy

The song “Accidental Racist”, the collaboration of country musician Brad Paisley and rapper LL Cool J, has been a hot bed of controversy since its release and criticism has come from all angles. It got so much press that even Saturday Night Live  jumped on board and did a  pretty good spoof on it.

However, not everyone sees the song as that controversial.

One person in particular is none other than Snoop Dogg, or Snoop Lion as he’s going by now.

In an interview published on the Wall Street Journal’s “Speakeasy”, Snoop, who actually heard the song early on, didn’t see the controversy and thinks people should look at the “positivity” of the collaboration of the two musicians.

“LL played the song for me in the studio, I didn’t think it was controversial,” Snoop told Speakeasy in a recent interview.

“Just shut the f— up and enjoy the music or don’t. There’s too much put on what we do. It’s just like a movie, or art, or expression, it’s not mean to create so much controversy. Be glad that LL Cool J and Brad Paisley made a record together, that two people from different genres were able to make a record together. Look at the positivity of it all”, Snoop said.

He went on to say, “If you don’t like it, all you have to do is turn it off.”
