The Gin and Juice hitmaker famously fell out with Azalea in October (14), when he shared a viral image of an albino woman with cornrows, with the words, "Iggy Azalea No Make Up", splashed across the photo.

The Australia native promptly lashed out at Snoop for posting such a "mean" picture, but her angry response only encouraged the cheeky veteran to bombard her with more critical Internet snaps, until mutual friend T.I. stepped in to put a stop to the online dispute and prompted Snoop to apologise.

Now he has proved he has no problem with Azalea by admitting he is a fan of her work and defending her and fellow white rapper Macklemore against allegations they are appropriating black culture with their music.

When asked about his thoughts on "this suburban streak in hip-hop, like Iggy Azalea and MACklemore" in an interview with The New York Times Magazine, Snoop Dogg says, "Rap is supposed to grow. One thing about Iggy and MACklemore: They got soul (sic). They're inspired by hip-hop. I don't care how you're gonna take it to your people and flip it and dip it and serve it."
