A rap legend in the music industry has taken a friendly stance on how he feels about President Donald Trump, breaking with the traditional entertainment industry’s seemingly endless vitriol toward the 45th president.

In a new interview with The Sunday Times, rapper Snoop Dogg indicated that he had no beef with Trump. According to The Hill, he stated that he had “nothing but love and respect” for Trump, which comes as quite a twist, considering the celebrity’s past hostile comments and actions toward the president.

In 2017, Snoop Dogg made a music video that featured a satirical clown version of Donald Trump. In the video, the rapper literally guns down the effigy of Trump, who is called “Ronald Klump” in the video.

The startlingly shocking video was one in a string of celebrity meltdowns over President Trump’s first term, resulting in a variety of musicians lamenting their opposition to “the Donald” and his policies.

Per The Hill, Snoop Dogg explained, “Donald Trump? He ain’t done nothing wrong to me. He has done only great things for me. He pardoned Michael Harris.”

The rapper’s flip on his stance regarding Trump may seem like somewhat of a headscratcher, but his mention of Michael Harris is notable.

According to Rolling Stone, Michael “Harry O” Harris spent almost three decades in prison for “attempted murder and cocaine trafficking charges” but helped found Death Row Records.

Trump pardoned Harris while in office. He also pardoned many others. Snoop Dogg was one of several who advocated for Harris’s sentence commutation.

Whether Snoop Dogg’s “love” for Trump will continue remains to be seen, but for now, he seems to have made a 180 turn on his feelings about the 45th president.
