A Hangry Snoop Dogg Blasted His Uber Eats Driver When He Refused To Deliver His Food Because Of The "8-Minute Rule," And The Messages Are Me

I deserve a Pulitzer for this investigation.

You know Snoop. Snoop Dogg. Snoop Doggy Dogg. Snoop D-O-double-G. Rapper, legend, icon.

Well, he took to Instagram to share the frustration he had with an Uber Eats delivery driver, who seemingly refused to deliver his food.

Here's what happened.

So I guess Snoop placed his order, and the driver arrived at his house at 10:41 p.m. "I've arrived. I've arrived. Hello," the driver messaged Snoop on the app.

This activated the "8-minute timer" Uber Eats policy, which doesn't let the driver cancel before eight minutes is up.

Snoop, I guess, hadn't answered yet, so the driver texted, "Plz call not sure where to leave your order."

"This is not a safe place," the driver then randomly said. Like, I'm sure Snoop lives in some extravagant mansion???

By the time Snoop answered, though, it was 10:49 p.m., aka eight minutes later, aka the time when the driver can technically cancel the order, which is what probably happened.

Snoop's texts: "Yes it is pull up to the gate" and "The black. Gate. N drop. Off the food i paid 4" after deliverer texts "This is not a safe place"

Snoop shared the entire exchange on Instagram, saying, "Motherfucker from fucking Uber Eats didn’t bring my fucking food. Talking about he arrived. ‘This is not a safe place.’ Punk motherfucker. Where my food at, n*gga? You got all my goddamn money, punk.”

But honestly, the TIMER is where I think it all went wrong, king. Rule number one of ordering delivery: You wait by your phone for it like a rabid starved animal, the way I do.

We'll never know if Snoop got his food or what it was or how the situation got resolved. It's a great mystery of life. But if Snoop or Uber Eats ever shares or comments on what happened, we'll be sure to update you.
