Eminem completely forgot he was in one of the biggest music videos of all time

In hilarious resurfaced footage, Eminem admitted that he completely forgot he appeared in Dr Dre’s ‘Still D.R.E’ music video alongside Snoop Dogg.
However, during the interview, it was revealed that the real Slim Shady couldn’t remember at all being involved in the video for 1999’s ‘Still D.R.E’.
In the footage, Eminem and Snoop are sat side-by-side in a recording studio when the interviewer asks them: “Have y’all shot a video together before?”
Eminem takes a second to deliberate before concluding: 'Nope'. However, Snoop’s quick mind doesn’t appear to be as slow as his collaborators.
“We was in a movie together,” Snoop corrected. “And the video… The Dre video.”
Snoop turned to the 'Lose Yourself' rapper and asked him: “Weren’t you on the beach running on that video?”
Eminem still seemed to have no recollection of the iconic moment and instead, asked Snoop to confirm.
“You was running on the beach. That was like your debut album,” Snoop clarified.
“You was running on the beach with damn near no clothes on. You was Slim Shady, you was like crazy back then, like real crazy.”
Eventually, Eminem’s memory snaps back into place and he replies: “I remember now. For some reason, I was thinking ‘Forgot About Dre’. I pictured my performance in that.”
The video for ‘Still D.R.E’ was directed by Hype Williams and featured Eminem and Snoop alongside famous faces Funkmaster Flex and Warren G.
Elsewhere in the interview, Snoop told Eminem that working on ‘From the D 2 The LBC’ 'challenged' him as an artist.
“You put me back in my karate school days, where I used to be a young MC and love the challenge of having to try a new style or new cadence,” Snoop said.
But while Snoop was full of praise back in 2022, it was a different story in 2020.
The 'Gin & Juice' rapper made an appearance on The Breakfast Club and claimed Eminem wouldn’t be where he is without Dr. Dre.
At the time, he said: “Eminem, ‘The Great White Hope’. White rappers had zero respect in rap… [Dre] has probably put Eminem in the position where he would be labelled one of the top 10 rappers ever.
“I don’t think so, but the game thinks that he’s a Top 10 lyricist and everything 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.”
In retaliation to Snoop’s comments, the 8 Mile star released the 2020 diss track, ‘Zeus’.
In the lyrics, he called out Snoop directly, with the lyrics reading: “Last thing I need is Snoop doggin’ me/Man, Dogg, you was like a damn god to me/Meh, not really/I had dog backwards.”
However, the pair seemed to have buried the hatchet by February 2022 when they appeared alongside the likes of Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar at the Super Bowl halftime show.
