Eminem is dealing with a few issues with some notable people on the new deluxe version of his album entitled, “Music to be Murdered by- Side B.”
The 8 Mile rapper clapped back at Snoop Dogg, a new bonus song on the album after Snoop left him off his top 10 rappers list.
In the track called “Zeus,” Em spits, “And as far as squashin’ beef, I’m used to people knockin’ me. But, just not in my camp. I’m diplomatic, ’cause I’m tryna be. Last thing I need is Snoop doggin’ me. Man, dog, you was like a damn God to me. Man, not really. I had dog backwards.”
The riff started when Snoop left Eminem off his list of top 10 rappers of all time. In July, Snoop also called Eminem “the great white hope” and basically implied Em owed all his success to their mutual friend, the legendary Dr. Dre.
Em also takes a moment on the song to address Rihanna. He apologized to the popstar for a different, unreleased song, which leaked and showed Em siding with Chris Brown.
Em raps, “But, me, long as I re-promise to be honest, and wholeheartedly, apologies, Rihanna. For that song that leaked, I’m sorry, Ri. It wasn’t meant to cause you grief. Regardless, it was wrong of me.”
No word yet on whether Snoop or Rihanna have responses of their own.
