Snoop Dogg Responds To Eminem's Diss From New Album
Last year, Snoop took a swipe at his fellow rapper when he said he wouldn't place Eminem in his list of top 10 rappers of all time.
Eminem then hit back in December by calling out Snoop in new track 'Zeus', rapping: "As far as squashing beef I'm used to people knocking me/But just not in my camp/And diplomatic as I'm tryin' to be/Last thing I need is Snoop doggin' me/Man, Dogg, you was like a damn god to me/Meh, not really (haha)/I had dog backwards."
Now the saga continues for the new year, as Snoop has responded to an Instagram question from an Eminem fan page, @eminemfact.
"Was Snoop Dogg being disrespectful when he said he could live without Eminem's music?" the page posed to fans.
But Snoop himself ended up chiming in, commenting: "Pray I don't answer that soft a** s***."
Their beef began back in July 2020, when Snoop told The Breakfast Club that he simply wouldn't consider Eminem one of his all-time favourite rappers - which is fair enough, really.

Referring to Slim Shady sarcastically as the 'great white hope', he said: "[Dr. Dre] has probably put Eminem in the position to where he could be one of the top 10 rappers ever. I don't think so, but the game feels like he's top 10 lyricists and all that that comes with it. But, 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 Eminem wasn't in his top 10, Snoop replied: "'Cause there's some n****s in the '80s he can't f*** with. Like Rakim, like Big Daddy Kane, like KRS-One, like LL Cool J, shall I go on? Like Ice Cube. You understand me?"
However, Snoop later showed a bit of love to Eminem, sharing a photo of the two of them on Instagram later in July, writing: "Slim Shady wit silky slim. Gang gang."
Fast forward to the end of 2020, when Slim explained it wasn't what Snoop had said but the way he said it.
Speaking on Shade 45, Eminem's hip hop music station, he said: "Everything he said, by the way, was fine, up to a point.
"Him saying I'm not in his top 10 because there are some rappers in the '90s I can't f*** with.
"[...] I think 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***? It threw me for a loop. Again, I probably could've gotten past the whole tone and everything, but it was the last statement where he said, 'Far as music I can live without, I can live without that s***.' Now you're being disrespectful. It just caught me off-guard. I wasn't ready for that."
