John Salley: “Eminem is great but Snoop Dog is hip-hop”

John Salley has recently set down with DJ VLAD where he talked about Eminem and Snoop Dogg situation. During the interview, VLAD asked the veteran basketball player what if Snoop Dogg responded Eminem with a diss track..

“Eminem’s response was dope! But if Snoop Dogg dissed Eminem, it would be the biggest mistake of his life. Snoop is hip-hop. Jay-Z is great. NAS is great. Biggie is great. Tupac is great. Eminem is great. Hip-Hop as it is as we see, it’s Snoop Dogg, to the point where everybody knows that. So when you walk in and you see Snoop you think we and hip-hop. He changed everything. Biggie said I wanna sell records like Snoop. So for him to reply to that, nah, Eminem just said you are like God to me. So Gods can do whatever they want.”

“Just do not go after Eminem. He’s too lyrical. Prowess to this young man. I love hip-hop. When I hear lyrics and I just get caught up in the wordplay, that’s why I like J. Cole. That’s why I like Kendrick, Logic, Joyner Lucas. I still listen to Nas and Jay-Z to this day. 2 Chainz is probably my favorite next to Eminem and Royce Da 5’9″, of course Andre 3000 too but Eminem putting words together like nobody. Nah, don’t do that.” said John Salley
