Rappers Snoop Dogg & Eminem have finally ended their beef and have now recorded a new song. The rap/Hip-Hop icons recorded their upcoming new song “about two months ago,” Snoop says. “And that motherfucker slap.
Regarding ending the fued, Snoop says he picked up his phone and made a private apology to the Detroit spitter some months back. Snoop explains on an upcoming episode of Rolling Stone Music Now podcast.
“I know how to call Marshall and say, man, I apologize,” Snoop says in the episode, which airs October 29th on SiriusXM’s Volume channel (106) and will be available as a podcast on November 3rd. “‘I was wrong, bro. Do you forgive me?’” The two veteran rappers then teamed up to record a new song set for release on next January’s album from Snoop’s Mt. Westmore supergroup, which also includes Ice Cube, Too $hort and E-40.
In an interview on the Breakfast Club radio show last July, Snoop suggested he wouldn’t rank Eminem among the Top 10 rappers of all time, and Eminem shot back in his song “Zeus”: “I’m used to people knocking me/But just not in my camp… Last thing I need is Snoop dogging me.”
Late last year, Eminem explained why he was upset: “Everything he said was fine, up to a point,” Eminem said in a New Year’s Eve interview on Shade 45. “Him saying Dre made the best version of me, absolutely, why would I have a problem with that?…. it was the last statement where he said, ‘Far as music I can live without, I can live without that shit.’ Now you’re being disrespectful. It just caught me off-guard.”
“You got to understand we really love each other,” Snoop says. “So we don’t want the public to put a spin on something that’s not even that serious…. And we truly respect each other. So we wanted to get an understanding behind closed doors… We’re brothers, man. You know, my [real] brother hurt my feelings a lot of times — I wanted to join a gang and he wouldn’t let me!… You learn to understand and respect each other as brothers, as family members, and you respect each other’s opinions. And as long there was no disrespect directly or ill will, then it can all be forgiven and it can all be moving on.”
