Who are some of Snoop Dogg's favourite rappers? Well, it sounds like Eminem isn't one of them.
During an interview with The Breakfast Club, 'Gin N Juice' rapper Snoop suggested that, thanks to Dre, Eminem is perceived by many as one of the top ten rappers of all time.
Eminem is not even in Snoop's top ten rappers of all time. Agree or Disagree? pic.twitter.com/nRG1MwwlpB— The Breakfast Club (@breakfastclubam) July 29, 2020
"Eminem! The Great White Hope. White rappers had zero respect in rap. Let's keep that one thou wow," said Snoop Dogg.
"[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."
When asked why Slim Shady hadn't made it into his top ten, Snoop said there were a number of rappers from the eighties that the 'Godzilla' rapper couldn't go up against.
"There's some n***as in the 80s that he couldn't f**k with," Snoop continued. "Like Rakim, like Big Daddy Kane, like KRS-One, like LL Cool J. Shall I go on? Like Ice Cube."
Snoop made it clear he wasn't bashing Eminem and went on to confess his admiration for his "teammate", but he did admit he could live without the Detroit rapper's music.
Fans took to Twitter in reaction to Snoop's comments. "Probably the most respectable answer I’ve ever heard to why Eminem wouldn’t be in a top 10," said one user.
"I love snoop but wtf ?! You say snoop don’t be crazy Eminem is not top 10 Eminem is not top 5 Eminem is top 1 my guys," said another.
Im not mad at Snoop Dogg at all. Eminem also listed his top rappers many times but I don't recall he ever mentioned Snoop. Every1 has their opinion but when Snoop says Em is his brother & in same sentence he says he can live without Em's music, I found this kinda disrespectful— Southpawer (@Southpawers) July 29, 2020
