Eminem has just hit his radio station Shade 45 to promote the deluxe edition of Music To Be Murdered By: Side B.
In an interview, Eminem explains why he felt disrespected by Snoop Dogg.
“Couple of months ago, Snoop Dogg was doing an interview with Breakfast Club. Somehow my name got brought up and he was say things about, you know, I’m not in his Top 10. Everything he said, by the way, was fine. Him saying I’m not in his Top 10 rappers because the 90s I can’t f**k with. Absolutely. Him saying Dre made the best version of me. Absolutely. Why would I have a problem with that. Will I be here without Dre? F**k no! The rappers he mentioned from 90s, KRS One, Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap, I never said I could f**k with them. I never said that.”
“Everything was good until like…It was more about the tone he was using that caught me off guard cause I’m like: ‘where is this coming from?’ I just saw you! What the f**k! It threw me for a loop again. I could probably get passed to that tone and everything but the last statement that he said ‘as far as his music I can live without that!’ Now you’ve been disrespectful. You just caught me off guard. I was not ready for that.
People started hit me up about it. Asking what you gonna do. And I didn’t know what to do about it first. It confused me and I’m like ‘bro we are on the same team. What the f**k! And I’ve never in my career, my entire career, ever said a disrespectful word about Snoop Dogg. I mean, what the f**k. His impact on hip-hop, I can’t front on that. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. My top 10 can’t be the same as his. How can I be mad at that? I was not mad about the opinion, it was after that. The very last statement was like ‘oh what the f**k. Damn dawg, really?! I said what needed to be said.”
