Snoop Dogg and Eminem have released their first collaboration in almost two decades, complete with a partly animated song video in which they celebrate their respective hometowns. Snoop Dogg admits that Eminem had pushed him to level up his bars.
The last time Snoop Dogg and Eminem appeared on the same track was in 2000’s “Bitch Please II” off Eminem’s third studio album The Marshall Mathers LP. Aside from working together on the record, they also traveled as part of the Up In Smoke Tour the same year, alongside Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and Xzibit.
Twenty years later, the two rappers reunited, this time for the single “From The D 2 The LBC.” Eminem posted a video of himself and Snoop in the studio, where Snoop Dogg confesses Slim Shady encouraged him to enhance his bars.
Eminem said to Snoop, “Yeah, but you killed it though, bro” to which Snoop responds, “You challenge me Marshall. You put me back in my karate school days, where I used to be a young MC and, you know, loved the challenge of having to try new styles and new cadences.”
The Doggfather then chimed in to say, “The rap game is supposed to be challenging; it’s supposed to make you dig in your bag. ‘Cause I’ve heard you on other songs with other rappers, and you tend to show out, so I wanted to make sure I was going to represent.”
You can watch the video that Eminem posted below. Stay tuned to Thirsty for more updates!
