Eminem explained the real reason why he and Snoop Dogg decided to end their beef, as Slim Shady appeared on during a special edition of Paul Rosenberg’s original SiriusXM podcast series: Paul Pod: Curtain Call 2.
The unexpected beef between Snoop Dogg and Eminem happened after the Dogg Father appeared on The Breakfast Club back in 2020. During the interview, Snoop Dogg claimed he did not think Eminem was a top 10 artist and also stated “I can live without that sh*t” referring to Eminem’s music.
Later that year, Eminem spoke on Snoop’s comments on a special New Years Eve episode of Shade45. “I think it was more about the tone he was using that caught me off-guard ‘cause I’m like, where is this coming from? I just saw you, what the (hell)? It threw me for a loop,” Eminem continued. “I probably could’ve gotten past the whole tone and everything, but it was the last statement where he said, ‘Far as music I can live without, I can live without that (ishh).’ Now you’re being disrespectful. It just caught me off-guard,” Em said.
Five months later Eminem declared the beef between him and Snoop Dogg over. On the ‘Kiler Remix’ featuring Jack Harlow and Cordae, Eminem addressed the Snoop Dogg beef. “Just called Snoop and I talked to him, we all cool / Dre, me, and the Dogg good, Doc, we got you,” Eminem raps.

Now more than a year later, we get more clarification and the real reason the two rap icons decided to end their beef. “Me and Snoop [Dogg] had our little issue,” Eminem said during his interview on Paul Pod: Curtain Call 2. “When that thing happened with Dre, the brain aneurysm thing, we were like, ‘Bro, this is stupid. This is stupid as hell to be feuding right now.’ I don’t remember if I called him or he called me; I can’t remember. But we talked it out. I think there was a miscommunication at the time, in regards to him being on my album, The Marshall Mathers LP – ‘B*tch Please II,’ and I think he had wanted to do something with me.”
Back in January of 2021, Dr. Dre was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center’s ICU in Los Angeles, California where he was treated for a brain aneurysm. Luckily for Dre, he was able to survive, as initially Doctors had their doubts.
Snoop and Eminem would release their much anticipated collab, ‘From The D 2 The LBC.’ The single produced by Slim Shady himself, was also accompanied by a music video and a live performance at the 2022 MTV VMA’s.
