Snoop Dogg Says Eminem Is Not On His Top 10 Rappers Of All Time List And Fans React

Snoop Dogg has said that Eminem wouldn't make it on to his list of top 10 rappers of all time.

Speaking to US radio show The Breakfast Club, the 48-year-old was explaining that the Dr. Dre stamp of approval helped with a lot of careers in the music industry - which led fans to jump on the proverbial bandwagon, believing that Eminem is a top 10 rapper of all time.

Snoop said: "Eminem! The Great White Hope. White rappers had zero respect in rap. Let's keep that one though, wow.

"[Dr. Dre] has probably put Eminem in the position that he would be considered 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."

Old School Snoop goes on to say that there are some artists from the '80s that Em couldn't compare to, listing: "Rakim, like Big Daddy Kane, like KRS-One, like LL Cool J, shall I go on? Like Ice Cube." Still got six more to go to make a top ten, LAD.

Responding to the clip, one fan said: "Snoop explained his reasons perfectly... I don't feel there is any controversy & I don't think Em wud be vexed by it either. For me personally, I'd be lying if I said Em wasn't one of the illest MCs in 2000s & that every person was rocking w him, but now hate him coz it's cool [sic]."

Another added: "Guess it boils down to personal taste. My top ten would definitely have Eminem as number one and near the top would be Nas, Andre 3000, Biggie and MF Doom. Some famous names don't make it as I don't connect with their voice or flow. Saba makes my top 10 too."

A third commented: "Snoops proper old school he wouldn't do people from the past like that and not give them the shout. Proper OG you have to respect him for that."
