Snoop divulged in the beef with ET just was not able to go against one of his "nephews."

Snoop Dogg was sort of thrusted into the middle of the vicious battle between Kendrick Lamar and Drake. His voice was manipulated for the latter's "Taylor Made Freestyle," the second diss response and quick follow-up to "Push Ups." The West Coast legend gave a signature reaction to the track on social media: "They did what? When? How? Are you sure? Y’all have a good night." However, Snoop Dogg has never clearly stated what team he decided to rep. As of recent, we now have an answer, and it might bother the people who need to take sides in everything.

According to HipHopDX, the Doggystyle creator was asked by Entertainment Tonight what this beef meant to him, especially after witnessing some of the most legendary bloodbaths. However, Snoop Dogg shared a fairly rare and positive take about it all. "Well, the only thing I want to say about that whole scenario is that I want to give both of them a shout out for raising the bar as far as lyrics, as far as song-making and writing because the writing has been upped since the confrontation."

Additionally, Snoop explained why he is taking this humanitarian approach. "Those are my nephews. "I’m not in the middle of it. I support both of them and that’s personal business, not my business." While he is choosing to stay out of it, he did want to recognize their efforts of focusing on bring back the emphasis on bars. "As far as what they did for the industry and the rap game, they made you rap again. You can't mumble your way and gimmick your way to a song no more, buddy. So, thank y'all."
