Snoop Dogg is considered a hip hop icon for his legendary status as a West coast rapper. He recently went toe to toe with Yonkers iconic hip hop artist, DMX, in a versuz that saw the east coast battle the west coast.

On the New York radio station show, Breakfast Club, Snoop Dogg made a claim against conventional hip hop thought in terms of not ranking Eminem in his top ten of all time rappers.

“Eminem, the great white hope. White rappers had zero respect in rap,” said Snoop Dogg over a video call with Charlamagne Tha God, DJ Envy, and Angela Yee. He goes on to say that Eminem has been put in a position where he can be considered one of the Top 10 rappers ever, but disagrees.

Charlamagne Tha God agreed that he also doesn’t place Em in his personal Top 10 list, before Snoop names some rappers that would go above him.

“There’s just some n***as in the 80s that he can’t fuck with,” concluded Snoop. “Like Rakim, like Big Daddy Kane, like KRS-One, like LL Cool J… Shall I go on? Like Ice Cube. You understand me? I don’t got no time to play with it, it is what it is. Cuz did that. He did that to the fullest. That’s one of my teammates, one of my brothers. He did that. But when you’re talking about this hip-hop that I can’t live without…”.

After his comments created quite a stir, Snoop, decided to remind everyone that he is indeed friends with Eminem and that he was not dissing the icon.
