The Doggfather has Jay-Z’s back. When George Zimmerman, the man best known for getting away with shooting and killing a teenager, threatened Jay-Z over the production of a documentary about the shooting, Snoop Dogg stepped up in Jay’s defense via Instagram. Zimmerman previously stated that “I know how to handle people who f*ck with me, I have since February 2012,” following up by saying, “anyone who f*cks with my parents will be fed to an alligator.”
Well, it appears Snoop Dogg knows how to handle anyone who threatens a cultural luminary such as Jay-Z. He posted a screenshot of a headline about the threats with the caption “If one hair on jays hair is touched that’s when the revolution will b televised We one ??and to thank the system let the Bitch ass muthaf*cca get away with murder try it again ??Trayvon Martin Gone but not forgotten.”
While Snoop was definitely responding off the cuff and representing his own feelings rather than those of a larger group, it’s worth noting that the Neva Left rapper has yet to back down from a challenge, whether online or off. He’s stood up for a number of other stars when they’ve come under scrutiny, even ripping the President for his comments about football star Marshawn Lynch.
