Nice Try: Bow Wow Attempts To Defend Snoop Dogg Against Trump

That didn't work, did it?

Shad Moss, known to many as MC Lil Bow Wow, attempted to chime in on the hot news of the day, and it didn't work out in his favor. His tweet was directed at President Donald Trump and tried to defend his "uncle" Snoop Dogg's video for "Lavender," in which the Long Beach rapper shoots a clown who bears a striking resemblance to Trump.

Trump tweeted early this morning (Mar. 15) that Snoop, "failing career and all," would have been jailed if he aimed and fired the gun in the video at our previous president, Barack Obama.

In Bow Wow's response tweet, he wrote that Trump needs to "shut his punk a** up" before he and Snoop Dogg force First Lady Melania Trump to work for them (they'll be her pimps).

If we've learned anything about Bow Wow, it's that his social media clapbacks often result in major clowning. Naturally, Twitter was quick to shut him down, with many users saying that it wasn't his place to try and elicit a reaction from Trump.

Bow Wow and Snoop Dogg go way back. As a young performer, Bow Wow was noticed by Snoop Dogg, and he is allegedly the little kid on the "Gz and Hustlas" intro from Snoop's Doggystyle album (you know, the one who wants to be a "mutha f**kin' hustla" when he grows up). Reports say that Snoop will also help Bow Wow produce his "last" album.

What do you think about Moss' tweet? Sound off in the comments and check out some hilarious reactions to his tweet below.

Jay-Z Praises Debut Of Jordan Peele's 'Us' Movie

As part of the celebratory activities that took place after the debut of Us, Jay-Z decided to partake in the words of felicitations and congratulated director Jordan Peele for another cinematic feat. On Sunday (March 24), Mr. Carter issued a statement on the achievement, as posted by Roc Nation's Twitter account.

"For US by US. Congrats on the #1 movie in the world," the "Moonlight" rapper said. In a past interaction, Peele said Jay-Z helped him to get over the notion of a sophomore slump when he worried about another stellar follow-up to Get Out. In an interview with MTV News, Peele remembered Jay-Z stating, "It doesn't matter, you already did that."

According to Variety, Us (MonkeyPaw Productions), raked in $70 million at the domestic box office last weekend (March 22). The horror film stars VIBE cover star Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong'o, Elizabeth Moss, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and more.

On the topic of featuring a black family at the center of this film, Peele said to VIBE that it'll open up new perspectives of what an African-American unit looks like onscreen. “To be able to normalize this idea of representation in film, we have to be ready to represent the spectrum of where we are as African-Americans," Peele said. "I hope it’s therapeutic to be able to see a black family buy a boat in a movie, to be able to play the good guy and the bad guy, and not have it be a movie that has to be about race. I think that’s good within our community, and it’s good for the outside communities to be able to see — don’t put us in boxes.”
