Snoop Dogg might have tensions with some public figures, including the President of the U.S., but it's not as often he finds himself in a potential beef with other rappers. In his recent "Moment I Feared" video, fans speculated that the veteran rapper was poking fun at Young Thug and today's rap scene. Fortunately, that's not the case at all.

The "Lavender" MC did an interview with HipHopDX, where he clarified his portrayal of Thugger that fans believed was a diss. He says that not only was he not making fun of the Beautiful Thugger Girls entertainer, but he actually respects him and what the "youngsters" are doing in the game.

“Nah, I ain’t poking fun at nobody. It’s a video. I’m acting in the video,” Snoop explained. “It’s a lot of people it could be. But it’s just me letting people know that I respect what the youngsters are doing. This is what they do, how they do it. I respect that.”

Later on in the interview, Snoop also refers to Thugger as his "nephew," which he commonly does to younger rappers he respects or works with.

If you recall, Snoop was actually a feature on Thugger's recently released singing album, as they collaborated on the Atlanta native's "Get High" record with Lil Durk.
