SNOOP DOGG Reveals Why EMINEM Isn't In His Top 10 Rappers Of All Time List
When fans debate over their favorite rap artists, it comes as no surprise how Eminem always seems to be part of the conversation. But apparently, the so-called "Rap God" is not on hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg's Top 10 list.
The "Drop It Like It's Hot" hitmaker explained why in a recent interview with The Breakfast Club.
"Eminem! 'The Great White Hope'. White rappers had zero respect in rap. Let’s keep that one thou wow," began Snoop who also gave credit to Dr. Dre for launching the Real Slim Shady's career. "[Dre] has probably put Eminem in the position where he would be considered one of the top 10 rappers ever."
But Snoop continued: "I don't think so, but the game feels like that he’s top 10 lyricists and all that that comes with it. That’s just because he's with Dr. Dre. and Dr. Dre helped him find the best Eminem that he could find."
When asked why the "Lose Yourself" rapper didn't make the cut, Snoop explained: "There's some n****s in the 80s that [Eminem] can't fuck with. Like Rakim, like Big Daddy Kane, like KRS-One, like LL Cool J … Like Ice Cube."
In the end, the 48-year-old rap icon clarified that there's no beef between him and Em who he considers as "one of my teammates, one of my brothers".
