EMINEM & SNOOP DOGG HAVE A COLLABORATION ON THE WAY DESPITE PAST SO-CALLED BEEF
Written by Nate Matthews on October 14, 2021
Eminem returned fire with a lightweight jab on the Music To Be Murdered By: Side B cut “Zeus” when he rapped, “As far as squashing beef I’m used to people knocking me/But just not in my camp/And diplomatic as I’m tryin’ to be/Last thing I need is Snoop doggin’ me/Man, Dogg, you was like a damn god to me/Meh, not really (haha)/I had dog backwards.”
In December 2020, Eminem explained why Snoop Dogg’s comments bothered him so much.
“Everything he said, by the way, was fine, up to a point,” Em explained around the 30-minute mark. “Him saying I’m not in his Top 10 because there are some rappers in the ’90s I can’t fuck with…A: Him saying Dre made the best version of me, absolutely, why would I have a problem with that? Would I be here without Dre? Fuck no, I wouldn’t. The rappers he mentioned from the ‘90s — KRS One, Big Daddy Kane, [Kool] G Rap — I’ve never said I could fuck with them. I never said that.”
He continued, “I think it was more about the tone he was using that caught me off-guard ’cause I’m like, where is this coming from? I just saw you, what the fuck? It threw me for a loop. Again, I probably could’ve gotten past the whole tone and everything, but it was the last statement where he said, ‘Far as music I can live without, I can live without that shit.’ Now you’re being disrespectful. It just caught me off-guard. I wasn’t ready for that.”
