Snoop Dogg dropped a new album, From tha Streets 2 tha Suites, today on 4:20. That is just the kind of thing that Snoop Dogg would do. He also took the opportunity to carry on his feud with Eminem.

The two rap icons have been feuding for a while when Snoop said that he wouldn’t put Eminem in a list of his top rappers. He also held little back in his new record. Since then both sides have taken shots at each other.

You can check out the references that Snoop Dogg made to Eminem below.

  • Snoop rapping: “Showstopper that dropped classics” could be a reference to “The Eminem Show.”
  • Snoop says “the same n**** that closed Curtains will close caskets.” That is a reference to Eminem’s “Curtain Calls: The Hits.
  • Snoop says: “Runnin’ numbers up, but it ain’t no miscalculation that.” This was a clever reference to Emmen’s lines “Your opinion’s like a broken calculator / That shit doesn’t count / Shut your motherf*ckin ‘mouth” on the track “Book of Rhymes” from the album “Music To Be Murdered By: Side B”.
  • Snoop also uses a line where he says: “Goin ‘Kamikaze for me and my concentration camp.” Eminem had a record called “Kamikaze.”
  • “Play Superman, I’ll be your kryptonite” is a reference to Eminem’s “Superman” and “Rap God” both. Snoop calls himself “kryptonite” while Eminem called himself Superman.

There are a lot of ways that you can read into lyrics. Knowing that there is currently a beef between those two certainly raises the possibility that every one of those references to Eminem was 100% intentional on Snoop Dogg’s part.
