Snoop Dogg Criticises Cardi B's 'WAP' Song And Asks Her To Keep Some Things Private
| Last updated
Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's epic 'WAP' has attracted a hell of a lot of attention since debuting in August this year.
The explicit lyrics about 'wet a** pu**y' and what the two artists like to do in bed drew plenty of criticism from people who thought it was very TMI.
One of those people who reckon the song is a bit much is Snoop Dogg.
The Doggfather is no stranger to lyrics that talk about sex and women in sexual positions (he even titled an album Doggystyle), however he reckons 'WAP' pushed the envelope a little too far.
During an interview with Central Ave, the rapper said: "Let's have some, you know, privacy, some intimacy where he wants to find out as opposed to you telling him.
"To me, it's like, it's too fashionable when that in secrecy, that should be a woman's...that's like your pride and possession. That's your jewel of the Nile. That's what you should hold onto. That should be a possession that no one gets to know about until they know about it."
He admitted that if the song came out when he was younger he would have liked to have done a remix.
However, as he's become wise with his years, his thinking has evolved.
"As an older man, I love it that they're expressing themselves and they're doing their thing," he said. "I just don't want it to where young girls feel like they can express themselves like that without even knowing that that is a jewel that they hold onto."
Snoop was asked whether he had spoken to his daughter about sexual expression and he said he had, however caveated that with the belief that young people are more sexually expressive than back in his day.
While some conservative people might agree with the Doggfather, Cardi B's husband wasn't impressed with the comments.
Speaking to TMZ, fellow rapper Offset thought Snoop should stay in his lane.
"As rappers, we talk about the same s**t," he said, referring to male artists. "It's a lot of women empowerment, don't shoot it down. We've never had this many artists that's female artists running this shit. They catching up to us, passing us, setting records.
"I love Snoop man, but she grown. I don't get in female business. I hate when men do that. I don't do that."
"It's entertainment, you know what I'm saying? That's a number one record," he said. "Anybody can say what they wanna say, that's six-time platinum in three or four months...it wasn't that bad cause it went No. 1."
