Eminem Discusses His Conflict With Snoop. He Reveals When & Why They Made Peace
In 2021, Eminem and Snoop Dogg went from collaborators to opposing forces in Hip-Hop. In January of that year, each superstar MC made comments about one another. Just over a year later, they shared the stage for an Emmy-winning Superbowl Halftime Show performance. Then, they released their first collaboration in over a decade, “From The D To The LBC,” and further showed that two of Dr. Dre’s most excellent patients were back on great terms.
Appearing on SiriusXM’s Paul Pod: Curtain Call 2, a special podcast with manager/business partner Paul Rosenberg, Eminem opened up about the 2021 issues. “Me and Snoop [Dogg] had our little issue,” begins Eminem in the clip below. He then explains that Dre’s 2021 aneurysm brought the two men to peace. “When that thing happened with Dre, the brain aneurysm thing, we were like, ‘Bro, this is stupid. This is stupid as hell to be feuding right now.’ I don’t remember if I called him or he called me; I can’t remember. But we talked it out. I think there was a miscommunication at the time, in regards to him being on my album, The Marshall Mathers LP – ‘B*tch Please II,’ and I think he had wanted to do something with me.”

Em then poses that perhaps Paul Rosenberg asked Snoop for more information. In 2000, Snoop was one of the highest-profile guests on Eminem’s second Aftermath Entertainment LP. “B*tch Please II” was a sequel to a hit song from Snoop from his 1999 No Limit Top Dogg album. Both versions were produced by Dre and featured Nate Dogg and Xzibit. “He said the way that he took it was kinda like that I don’t f*ck with him.”
Paul agrees that Snoop sought reciprocation for the collaboration, and was unable to secure the feature. “Whatever I said or somebody else said—I don’t even think I said to him,” says the recognized manager and executive. “Whatever I said was relayed back to him in a way that he didn’t like, and he thought you didn’t f*ck with him—which obviously wasn’t the case.” Eminem doubles down that Snoop’s 1993 debut Doggystyle changed his life.
