Eminem and Snoop Dogg put their problems aside when their friend and music partner Dr. Dre had a brain aneurysm back in January of 2021.
On the latest episode of Eminem’s longtime manager Paul Rosenberg’s Paul Pod: Curtain Call 2 podcast on Wednesday (Sept. 14), the rapper opened up about why he and Snoop were at odds and how they eventually buried the hatchet.
“I think that there was a miscommunication at the time in regards to him being on my album, The Marshall Mathers LP – Bitch Please II,” Em recalled. “I think he had wanted to do something with me and maybe gave you [Rosenberg] the idea and you said something to the effect of, ‘Well, let’s hear what the song is first.’ He said the way that he took it was kinda like that I didn’t f— with him.”
Em then went on to explain why they decided to let things go. “Me and Snoop had our little issue and when that thing happened with Dre, the brain aneurysm thing,” he said. “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, but we talked it out.”
While Eminem and Snoop reconnected, he told Rosenberg about the impact that Snoop’s debut album had on his artistry.
“I’m like, ‘Bro, Doggstyle changed my life,'” he said. “I think that whole thing was just us getting our signals crossed somehow. Because for him to take it, I was like, ‘Bro, how could I not f— with you?’ We talked it out and realized how stupid it was to even be feuding at all in the first place. My olive branch was bringing Snoop [‘From the D 2 the LBC’], plus I knew he’d kill that beat.”
Since their beef was officially squashed at the beginning of 2021, Em and Snoop performed at the LVI Super Bowl Halftime show and went on to showcase more of their brotherhood while performing “From the D 2 the LBC” at the 2022 MTV VMAs.
