"I'm gonna say something publicly. I don't know if I'm really correct in saying this but I want to say something publicly," Dollar said.
"Recently, a man in California, he's a rapper, in fact, he's known as a legend, they call him, I think his nickname is Snoop Dogg. He just released a gospel album to minister to people 'cause his grandmamma ministered to him and he had it on the inside of him. Isn't it sad that he received rejection and flak and 'how y'all gon' support somebody like this after what they did and what they said?' What's wrong with us?" Dollar asked.
While Snoop Dogg may have received criticism for going in another direction musically, his album has also received positive reviews.
Here are lyrics from one of the singles:
“I know god is calling me
I'm not where I'm supposed to be
Sitting here smoking trees
When I should be on my knees”

Dollar said the “Holy Ghost police” were wrong to go in on the rapper because they don’t know his heart or spirituality.
Dollar said he might call Snopp Dogg himself.
Someone should have said "Congratulations, thank you so much, thank you so much for releasing something that can minister to people and encourage people and help people," he said.
Megachurch Pastor Creflo Dollar told his congregation not to throw shade at Snoop Dogg. The godfather of rap recently released a gospel album, "Bible of Love." Dollar said the "Holy Ghost police" don't know Snoop's heart. Dollar also said he might call Snoop and congratulate him.
