Secretary of State John Kerry is good at this diplomacy thing.

On Thursday, Snoop Dogg posted a video on Instagram of him hobnobbing with Kerry at the White House. We're not sure who Kerry is crediting for the creation of hip-hop, but in the clip he says to Snoop, "He invented your whole thing."

Snoop agrees, and the two end their exchange with a seamless fist bump.

Watch the video.
