Christmas came early Friday, when Eminem stormed the Internet – and the iTunes charts – with the album “Music to Be Murdered By – Side B.”
As you might expect, following the unannounced release in 2020 of the greatest fighting rapper of all time, the original “Music to Be Murdered By” was not short. Although it is the same as the launch of the new 16-piece collection, one of them especially surprised some fans.
On track 14, “Zeus” (feat. White Gold), Slim Shady spits the bars below about Snoop Dogg, who has a long and told history with Eminem’s mentor, Dr. Dre.
As for beef crushing, I’m used to being beaten by people / But just not in my camp / And diplomatic as I try to be / The last thing I need is Snoop doggin ‘me.
Man, Dogg, you were like a god damn me / Meh, not really (haha) / I had a “dog” back
The lyrics were in response to some stupid things that former Snoop Doggy Dogg (and then at a strange time, including a reggae phase, Snoop Lion) said this summer during a “Breakfast” interview with DJ Envy and Charlemagne tha God.
Snoop was asked if Eminem is in the Top 10 biggest kidnappers of all time. Apparently, he really isn’t.
“Eminem! The Great White Hope! The white rappers had zero respect in rap. Let’s keep that wowow, “said Snoop Dogg. “[Dr. Dre] probably put Eminem in the position he would have labeled as one of the top 10 rappers ever. I do not believe. But the “game” feels like it [one of the] the first 10 readers and everything that comes with it. That’s just because he’s with Dr. Dre, and Dr. Dre helped him find the best Eminem he could find. “
“There are some n -s in the ’80s he can’t cope with,” Snoop continued, citing Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, KRS-One, LL Cool J, Ice Cube.
In addition to decades of collaboration between Snoop and Dre, Eminem and Snoop Dogg also performed songs (such as “Bitch Please II”, among others) and tours (“Up in Smoke”) together.

Good luck answering, Snoop. Ask Nick Cannon how his own beef works with Marshall Mathers.
