Snoop Dogg understands why people consider Eminem to be one of the greatest rappers ever but, personally, he doesn217;t crack his Top 10 list.
Hip-hop is incredibly competitive. One of the motivating factors for a lot of rappers remains the mission to become the best of all time. With each punchline and flow, people try to out-do their competition. To this day, hip-hop is basically a sport.
Historically, people have placed Eminem high on their lists of the best rappers ever. While that217;s understandable, Snoop Dogg would beg to differ, explaining why he personally doesn217;t place him so high up on The Breakfast Club.
“Eminem, the great white hope. White rappers had zero respect in rap,” said Snoop Dogg over a video call with Charlamagne Tha God, DJ Envy, and Angela Yee. He goes on to say that Eminem has been put in a position where he can be considered one of the Top 10 rappers ever, arguing that he personally doesn217;t believe he217;s worthy of the spot.
“There217;s just some n***as in the 80s that he can217;t fuck with,” concluded Snoop. “Like Rakim, like Big Daddy Kane, like KRS-One, like LL Cool J230; Shall I go on? Like Ice Cube. You understand me? I don217;t got no time to play with it, it is what it is. Cuz did that. He did that to the fullest. That217;s one of my teammates, one of my brothers. He did that. But when you217;re talking about this hip-hop that I can217;t live without230;”
