Snoop Dogg took over Eminem’s hip hop music station, Shade 45, over the weekend where he spoke to Too $hort, a member of his Mt. Westmore rap supergroup. The group is expected to release their debut album this year.
Snoop Dogg and Eminem are both protegées of Dr. Dre but there was some tension between them in recent years. It began when Snoop voiced his opinion on the top 10 rappers of all time which excluded the Detroit MC. Many considered it blasphemous while Snoop explained that he comes from an era before Em.
Eminem later took aim at Snoop on “Zeus” off of Music To Be Murdered By: Side B in a flurry of bars directed at the Long Beach rapper. “And, as far as squashing beef, I’m used to people knocking me/But, just not in my camp/ I’m diplomatic ‘cause I’m tryna be/Last thing I need is Snoop dogging me,” he rapped on the record. “Man, Dogg, you was like a damn god to me/Nah, not really (Haha)/I had ‘dog’ backwards/But I’m starting to think, all these people takin’ shots at me.”
“Everybody’s solo song was the last verse of the song before that, except the one with me and Eminem,” Dogg said in reference to the work. “Because I felt like that was like a big reveal. When n****s hear that Eminem on that m****rf****r, that’s just a whole other level.”
DJ Whoo Kid, who hosts The Whoolywood Shuffle on Shade 45, then appeared to confirm that the collaboration is imminent. “that new @snoopdogg and @eminem is coming soon. tune into him and @djwhookid all day until 6pm #whoolywoodshuffle @tooshort #Algorithm @defjam,” he wrote on Twitter on October 9th.
Mt. Westmore, comprising Snoop Dogg, E-40, Too $hort and Ice Cube, have been planning to release their debut album in 2021. In July, Ice Cube said they were “getting our ducks in a row” and that they were getting their visuals together “because when we hit, we want to keep rolling”. However, the album is yet to have materialised for a release.
