Snoop Dogg recently posted a preview of a new track seemingly aimed at Eminem.
Back in July, Snoop Dogg made headlines after he said Eminem wouldn’t make the list for his top 10 rappers of all time. The offhand comment seems to have created some ripple effects. On “Zeus,” from his latest album, Music to Be Murdered By: Side B, Em rapped about the snub. On Tuesday, an Eminem fan site posted video of Snoop playing a snippet that seems to be a response.
In the track, Snoop makes sly references to Kamikaze and “Superman,” both titles of Eminem albums and songs. However, this is coming an Eminem-focused site, and the snippet has allegedly been floating around for months so this could just be baseless speculation.
Shortly after “Zeus,” Eminem explained that he wasn’t offended by all of Snoop’s comments, but the way he put it did rub him the wrong way.
“Everything he said was fine, up to a point,” he said in an interview on Shade 45. “Him saying Dre made the best version of me, absolutely, why would I have a problem with that? Would I be here without Dre? F-ck no, I wouldn’t. The rappers he mentioned from the ‘90s—KRS One, Big Daddy Kane, [Kool] G Rap—I’ve never said I could fuck with them….it was the last statement where he said, ‘Far as music I can live without, I can live without that shit,’” he said. “Now you’re being disrespectful. It just caught me off-guard.”
In a conversation on Clubhouse, Daz Dillinger and Royce the 5’9 discussed what could be behind the conflict. According to Daz, Eminem turned down a feature request from Snoop, after they’d recorded “Bitch Please II” for Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP. “They told him no,” Daz said. “Snoop felt some type of way, like I did all this and all that, and you tell me no?”
Royce mentioned an interview that resurfaced where Snoop seemed miffed when asked about the track. Despite the shaky history between the two, they’ve appeared on two tracks together since.
Fast-forward to current-day: an Eminem fan account on Instagram posted “Zeus,” asking if Snoop was being disrespectful when he made his original comments. “Pray I don’t answer that soft ass sh-t,” Snoop commented.
