Eminem & Snoop Celebrate Their Peace By Battling EVERYBODY

A year and a half ago, things seemed bleak for Snoop Dogg and Eminem. Two of Dr. Dre’s superstar proteges, who had made huge records together in the past, appeared to be at odds. The two artists used the media and verses to take shots at each other. A beef appeared to be lingering throughout much of the pandemic. While 2021 started off on a strange note, 2022 put those notions to bed. The men shared the stage during an epic Super Bowl halftime performance in support of Dre. Now, at the year’s midpoint, these artists link with their latest collaboration, “From The D To The LBC.”

The song begins with an allusion to misunderstanding. “Yeah, it’s been a minute / This prolly shoulda happened a while ago / F*ck it, we’re here now though, let’s go / Yeah, man, what the f*ck, yo,” Eminem says at the top. As the self-produced beat kicks in, Eminem raps about the chronic: “That’s how I know that I’m in the studio with the Doggy / In Californi’ ’cause my homie from Long Beach/ Always got that bomb weed / I feel a calm breeze / Every time I palm trees, just like that blonde bleach / I went platinum then so did my album / Calvin’s turning me into a zombie / ‘Cause these buds are like the Hulk,” shares Em, catching a buzz off of his former “B Please II” collaborator. The record praises Snoop, with a bit of chiding too. “‘Cause like marriage, you wanna marry Jane / It’s like you and Spider-Man feel the very same / My adversaries came, but these little degenerates are my lineage / And when it come to pockets, weren’t many / If any as, skinny as mine, b*tch, I was penniless / Now I’m plenty rich, and this sh*t don’t make any sense.

The animated music video follows the action, where Snoop proclaims “My Detroit ni**as verse everybody, my Long Beach ni**as verse everybody.” While welcoming any challengers, Snoop and Eminem also appear in the visual, between the moving illustrations.

Marshall Mathers reverts to that attitude he had around Y2K. “I will treat Paula Deen / Like a f*ckin’ human pin-ball machine / Bouncing balls off her tonsils / If y’all are seekin’ the smoke, I got all the weed / I am a walking motherf*ckin’ marijuana leaf, and I’m here to stay / My ring’s so deafening, my longevity needs a hearing aid / Still wearing Hanes T-shirts, I done bodied some features with legendary names / Was there when Dre turned The Chronic to monetary gain.” Em also shouts out Mount Westmore, the anticipated super-group of Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, E-40, and Too Short. Earlier this month, the West Coast quartet dropped a Death Row Records album, released exclusively in the metaverse. In the chorus, the Shady Records founder also bigs up 213—Snoop’s group with Warren G and the late Nate Dogg, who became a favorite Em’ collaborator in the 2000s.

Snoop then delivers a fast-paced verse. “Make money moves like The Matrix / Make more mount motivation / Roll up, more meditation / I’m watchin’ the moves you make, you might wanna stick to the basics / Military mindset, locked in, cocked in, make sure the mission is profitable / Ain’t no mission impossib-ble,” begins Snoop. He then asserts his rapping abilities. “Me a monopoly, speak on my flow / My ni**a, I’m moppin’ ’em, slept on my floor, now ni**as is copyin’ / Ni**as be opping through all of this opulence / Gave me a task, I conquer it / This ain’t the time for ponderin’ / You ni**as is slanderin’, this real sh*t, ni**as be honorin’ / You lookin’ for followers, and not watchin’ my ni**as that’s followin’ / Ni**a, f(ck them likes, I’m yelling like, ‘What? My ni**as young problem’ / Eastside, East up, ni**a, Eminem, woke the beast up / Let y’all ride, now a ni**a want it back like the lease up / Think it’s a game? You gon’ see some’ / Ain’t no peace you’ll be missin’ a piece of.” Snoop finishes with a message of peace: “Marshall and Calvin, both from the gutters like public housin’ / Now we’re performin’ for hundreds of thousands / Wearin’ no makeup, but we still be clownin’, motherf*ckers.”

Claiming Eminem awakened the beast, Snoop drops his most spirited verse of 2022. In February, he released BODR (Bacc On Death Row), which featured Nate Dogg. The LP came with acquiring the label (formerly co-owned by Dre) where Snoop’s career launched into superstardom. In its darker years, that label took lyrical jabs at both Snoop and Em.

Notably, an Eminem tweet appeared to suggest that “From The D To The LBC” may be a bonus inclusion on a Curtain Call 2 compilation. In 2005, Shady/Aftermath/Interscope Records released Eminem’s first greatest hits collection, including some new songs at the time.

Snoop recently dropped Death Row Summer, a compilation that involves Tha Dogg Pound, Tha Eastsidaz, Raphael Saadiq, and Miguel. Last week, Eminem and CeeLo Green teamed up for “The King & I,” produced by Em and Dr. Dre.
