Eminem is always cooking up coming and he is about to drop a new track on the Mt. Westmore album. Snoop Dogg couldn’t wait to tell people all about the track that he is so hyped about.
The long-awaited project has finally arrived, or is set to arrive, and Snoop Dogg decided to open up about the experience and just how grueling it was to work with the equally legendary, Eminem. He spoke on the Rolling Stone Music Now Podcast and talked even about their previous issues with one another.
“That motherf*cker slap. It was very challenging for me, I’ll say that. Eminem really f*cking shot at me, he shot his shot. And as a rapper, that’s what you want when you get a feature, to have to f*cking work your ass off. You want somebody to come to the playing field, putting up points, to where you got to rethink your sh*t and say, ‘Well, damn, this is what he thinks of me.
That’s why he’s going so hard, because he knows that I’m going to match him on the same level.’ And that’s what it is when you make records with people that you love and family. It’s competitive, but it’s competitive for the right reasons to bring the best out of each other.”
Their previous issues are what make the collaboration quite the shock to one and all, but it would seem that all of that previous ugliness is now behind them. And speaking of that previous ugliness, it all started when Snoop didn’t consider Eminem as one of the top 10 rappers of all-time…and he said this publicly, to which Eminem replied:
“I’m used to people knocking me/But just not in my camp… Last thing I need is Snoop dogging me.
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 sh*t.’ Now you’re being disrespectful. It just caught me off-guard.”
Shows how much inspiration a heck of a lot of dough will bring to even those with grudges a mile long, because they did make up quite obviously, and they worked on a song for the aforementioned Mt. Westmore album. On the feud and ending it, Snoop Dogg stated:
“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.”
The highly anticipated new Mount Westmore album is slated to drop in January 2022 and will feature many other artists that make up Mt. Westmore other than guest, Eminem, including Ice Cube, Too Short and of course, E-40.
