Kanye West Banned From California
Kanye West has made his political alliances clear in the last few weeks, declaring his love for Donald Trump and reaffirming his intentions to run for President in 2024. In the midst of his tweet spree, Ye dropped two songs on his website with “Lift Yourself” and “Ye Vs The People.” While “Lift Yourself” appears to be a troll job with his now infamous “Poopdity scoop” lyrics, “Ye Vs The People” offered an interesting take on opening up a conversation between both extreme sides of the political spectrum. As T.I. and Kanye go back and forth on the track, one line, in particular, stood out for Daz Dillinger of Tha Dogg Pound, and he has gone on the attack.
Near the conclusion of the track, Ye utters the lyric, “Like a gang truce, the first Blood to shake the Crip’s hand,” which appears to not be sitting well with Daz Dillinger. Daz’s cousin Snoop Dogg has notably been going in on Ye on Instagram, taking aim at his Trump allegiance, and now Daz is getting in on the fun. The West Coast rapper shared a video calling out Yeezy in a “national alert,” telling all his fellow Crips to “fuck Kanye up.” Dilly follows up his warning by issuing a Kanye ban in the LBC (Long Beach) and California as a whole, allowing him to remain in Calabasas. Noting that Kanye is not a “Crip God,” Daz is making sure that Ye regrets his lyric swiftly.
We will see what comes from this but, especially since Ye lives in California, the ban may be a little tricky to navigate. Watch the video below and let us know your thoughts.
