Kanye West may need to watch his back next time he hits the town in Los Angeles after a rapper called on the city’s gang members to assault him because of his support for President Donald Trump.
The threat came over Instagram from Daz Dillinger, a former member of Snoop Dogg’s 1990s rapping entourage, Tha Dogg Pound duo.
“Yo national alert, all the Crips out there, y’all f— Kanye up,” Dillinger said, referring to the infamous Los Angeles-area street gang.
The video also features Dillinger (real name Delmar Drew Arnaud) warning West to not enter Long Beach and California generally, suggesting the famous hip-hop artist stays in the wealthy Calabasas.
“Better not ever see you in concert. Better not ever see you around the LBC. Better not ever see you around California,” the video continues. “Stay in Calabasas, ya hear me? Cuz we got a Crip alert for Kanye.”
The video has since been removed.
West generated considerable controversy last week when he started posting a series of tweets on April 25 expressing his admiration for Trump.
“You don’t have to agree with Trump, but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy,” West wrote in a tweet last Wednesday. “He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.”
Another tweet by West showed a picture of an autographed “Make America Great Again” hat.
