Despite years of friendship, Snoop Dogg and Eminem had their differences over the past year. How the two US stars found each other again, the Doggfather explains in a new interview in the Breakfast Club.
Snoop Dogg apologized to Eminem
What happened anyway? Snopp didn’t put Eminem in his personal top 10 best rappers of all time. The West Coast legend also added that he could live without his colleague’s music. These statements led to an artistic response from Eminem. On the track “Zeus” from the album “Music To Be Murdered By – Side B” he dealt against Snoop. He found the musical attack by Marshall Mathers rather wacky. A short time later the situation had cooled noticeably. Snoop Dogg wrote that the two rappers were good together again. Snoop (now streaming on Apple Music) reveals to the public for the first time which moves in the background have relaxed the situation. At first he doesn’t skimp on love for his buddy Eminem. His original statements were made on a battle whim. In retrospect, there was a long conversation about respect and dealing with one another.
“Man, I love Eminem! The thing is, we love hip-hop so much, we compete, we battle rappers, so that should trigger that in him. But we’re brothers and family, so we’ve learned to appreciate ourselves for what we do and how we act; and we had a long talk about the respect we have for one another and how we should speak about one another in public.
Apparently, Snoop feels responsible for the matter. It is not perfect or flawless. But that’s exactly what makes him Snoop Dogg in the end. “I felt like I went too far. I apologized to him and let him know that I was working on myself. I make mistakes, I’m not perfect, I’m Snoop Dogg.” (“I felt like I was out of pocket. I apologized to him and I let him know that I’m just bettering myself. I make mistakes, I ain’t perfect, I’m Snoop Dogg.”)
The community values Snoop’s sincerity. “It’s called size. I wish it could be inherited,” can be read, for example, in the comments on the relevant section. Snoop and Eminem will probably be mentioned in the same breath more often in the near future. Both rappers are booked for the Super Bowl 2022 halftime show. A common track should also be on the way.
