Snoop Dogg has disclosed that Eminem is not on the list of his top ten rappers. During a conversation with ‘The Breakfast Club’, the ‘Young, Wild and Free‘ rapper spoke about Dr. Dre and how he is only the reason why the ‘Spacebound‘ rapper is considered big.
“Eminem! The Great White Hope. White rappers had zero respect in rap. Let’s keep that one thou wow, [Dr. Dre] has probably put Eminem in the position that he would be considered one of the top 10 rappers ever. I don’t think so, but the game thinks that he’s top 10 lyricists and everything that comes with it. That’s just because he’s with Dr. Dre.”
Snoop Dogg clarified his reasons behind leaving Eminem out of his top ten list. He thinks that Em could not have won his battles against the rappers of 1980s. “There’s some n*ggas in the 80s that he couldn’t fuck with like Rakim, like Big Daddy Kane, like KRS-One, like LL Cool J … Like Ice Cube.”
While, Snoop Dogg does love and respect Eminem just because they are “teammates” under Dr. Dre however he thinks that he could live without the music that he makes.
The whole conversation created a lot of backlash towards Snoop Dogg from the stans of Eminem. The fans took to express their opinions regarding the same on twitter.
We don’t know how this is going to unfold in the future, will Eminem respond to Snoop Dogg via a diss track or will he just let it slide, only time will tell.
