Back in July 2020, Snoop Dogg talked about the state of hip-hop on The Breakfast Club podcast and mentioned Eminem was someone in hip-hop that he “can live without.” He also said that Dr. Dre was the reason for Eminem’s success: “[Dr. Dre] made Eminem, ‘The Great White Hope.’ White rappers had zero respect in rap … He has probably put Eminem in the position where he could be labeled as one of the top 10 rappers ever … but that’s just because he’s with Dr. Dre and Dr. Dre helps him find the best Eminem that he could find.”
Eminem worked fast, releasing the album with the single “Zeus” in December of that year. He also told Shade 45, “Everything he said, by the way, was fine, up to a point … I think it was more about the tone he was using that caught me off guard.” Snoop Dogg then admitted, “I felt like I was out of pocket. I apologized to him, and I let him know and I’m just bettering myself. I make mistakes” (via The Breakfast Club). Eminem confirmed that the feud ended on a remix of the track “Killer” saying, “Just called Snoop and I talked to him, we all cool … Dre, me, and the Dogg good, Doc, we got you.” Definitely one of the top 10 most respectful feuds Eminem’s had.
