Snoop Dogg and Eminem kicked off 2021 with an unexpected feud over lyrics on Em’s late 2020 single, “Zeus,” but it looks like tensions aren’t running as high as they may have seemed. In a recent comment on the Instagram account RapCyphers, Snoop said he didn’t have an issue with Em despite their recent disagreement. “Nothing, we good 💪🏻,” Snoop wrote in response to the page’s post wondering what had changed between the two.
Snoop’s words of reassurance came after he offered a much more curt response to Em’s “Zeus,” saying the Detroit rapper should “pray I don’t answer that soft a-s sh-t.” He was responding to lyrics on the song where Em referenced a Snoop Dogg Breakfast Club interview from July 2020:And, as far as squashin' beef, I’m used to people knockin' meBut, just not in my campAnd diplomatic as I’m tryna beLast thing I need is Snoop doggin' meMan, Dogg, you was like a damn god to meNah, not reallyI had “dog” backwardsBut I’m startin' to think, all these people takin' shots at meSh-t, it’s no wonder
In the interview, Snoop said he could “live without” Em’s music and said the Detroit rapper isn’t in his all-time Top 10. Eminem recently told Shade 45undefined that it was Snoop’s tone and apparent dismissal that rubbed him the wrong way.
“I think it was more about the tone he was using that caught me off guard. Cause I’m like, ‘where’s this coming from? I just saw you like, what the f-ck?’ You know what I’m saying? Like, it just, it threw me for a loop,” he explained. “Again, I probably could have got past the whole tone and everything, but it was the last statement when he said ‘as far as music I can live without, I can live without that sh-t.’ Now you’re just, now you’re being disrespectful for like, it just caught me off guard. I wasn’t ready for that.”
“Snoop was like, ‘Don’t nobody tell me no,’” Daz said. “He took it personally, and that’s why you never heard a song from Snoop and Em since then.” The two rappers have only worked together once, on 2000’s “B-tch Please II,” despite both being close with Dr. Dre. However, it’s worth noting that they were spotted in the studio together in 2019.
Whatever the root of their beef, it seems they’re both looking to put the issues to bed.
