Snoop Dogg was in a conversation with the crew of the Breakfast Club and spoke on why he doesn’t rate Eminem as a top 10 rapper.
Hip-hop is a competitive genre as artists are constantly fighting to be on top. Eminem have been referred to as one of the best rappers in the genre but Snoop Dogg thinks otherwise.
“Eminem, the great white hope. White rappers had zero respect in rap,” said Snoop Dogg over a video call with Charlamagne Tha God, DJ Envy, and Angela Yee.
He says that while Eminem has been put in a position where he can be considered one of the Top 10 rappers ever, he personally doesn’t believe the “Not Afraid” hitmaker is worthy of the spot.
“The game feels like he’s a top ten lyricist but that’s just because he’s with Dr. Dre and Dr. Dre helped him find the best Eminem that he could find,” said Snoop, diving a little deeper.
Charlamagne Tha God agreed that he also doesn’t place Eminem in his personal Top 10 list but asks why Snoop thinks so. Snoop then goes on to name some rappers that would go above him.
“There’s just some n***as in the 80s that he can’t fuck with,” concluded Snoop. “Like Rakim, like Big Daddy Kane, like KRS-One, like LL Cool J… Shall I go on? Like Ice Cube. You understand me? I don’t got no time to play with it, it is what it is. Cuz did that. He did that to the fullest. That’s one of my teammates, one of my brothers. He did that. But when you’re talking about this hip-hop that I can’t live without…”
While Snoop Dogg wasn’t being disrespectful and is entitled to his opinion, fans think otherwise.
