The Snoop Dogg-Trump feud may be over. Snoop says he has 'nothing to say'

UPDATE March 16, 10:37 a.m. EST:

Snoop Dogg responded to Trump's tweet about his "Lavender" music video. 

It wasn't exactly worthy of a rap feud. Snoop said on Instagram that he had "nothing to say, mate."

Here's the original video.

UPDATE  1:53 p.m. EST: Clifford Joseph Harris Jr., better known as T.I., sounded off on Trump's tweet at Snoop Dogg Wednesday afternoon.

It was not exactly family-friendly, as he called Trump a "tangerine-tanned muskrat scrotum skin," along with a slew of other insults.

Here's the entire epic rant. 

ORIGINAL STORY: President Trump has a new Twitter rival: Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., AKA Snoop Dogg.

The rapper released a video for the song "Lavender," a collaboration with BADBADNOTGOOD and Kaytranada, on Sunday. The video, which revolves around police brutality, features "President Klump" saying he wants to "deport all doggs." Snoop later catches up with Klump and shoots him with a toy gun that shows the word "bang" instead of bullets.  The parody was not lost on Trump, who sounded off on Twitter on Wednesday.

Snoop told Billboard the song would appear on a new album due out in May. He said he wasn't looking for a response from Trump or anyone else, but simply wanted to bring attention to what he sees as a gravely important issue. 

"I feel like nobody's dealing with the real issue of this fucking clown as president, and the shit that we dealing with out here," Snoop said. "So I wanted to take time out to push pause on a party record and make one of those records for the time being."
