Snoop Dogg is walking back a comment he made about Drake’s potential longevity in the music industry. Amid a press run for his new album The Algorithm, the “Black Mafia Family” star sat down with Complex’s Speedy Morton and admitted that his previous thoughts about the Toronto emcee were way off.

“That nigga ain’t going nowhere. What was I thinking? But that’s what we do in hip hop, we limit. We limit until somebody goes over the limit, and that’s what he did,” he said, adding his belief that his criticism may have inspired Drake to improve his skills. “That’s what hip-hop is to me, he probably took all that shit in when he was hearing all that… Like, ‘Alright, fuck that,” the West Coast legend continued.

“I’m finna fuck these niggas up, I’m gonna do some Michael Jackson shit.’ And he did that!”

Snoop Dogg was specifically referencing the comments he made last year during an episode of his “GGN” podcast. At the time, he said that he initially doubted Drake’s ability to last in the rap game. “In the beginning, when Drake first came out, I was like, ‘He’s just gonna be here today and gone tomorrow,’” explained the “Drop It Like It’s Hot” rapper. “Because I was like, I keep hearing basic shit.”

His newfound appreciation for the Views star comes after the certified lover boy expressed his admiration for Snoop’s career. On Thursday (Oct. 28), Drake shared throwback pictures from the Up in Smoke Tour in 2000. In one of the images, he pointed out Snoop, who headlined the tour along with Dr. Dre, and wrote, “My uncle too raw.” Eminem, Ice Cube, Nate Dogg, Warren G, Devin the Dude and Xzibit were also a part of the amazing event.
