Method Man Breaks Down Why Eminem Was Hurt By Snoop Dogg’s Comments
Yes Method Man indeed provides an in-depth explanation why Eminem and Snoop Dogg recently found themselves caught up in a minor beef. Method Man, himself a legendary lyricist and Wu-Tang Clan veteran, also had a lot of thoughts about the feud-that-almost-was.
Meth recently sat on Math Hoffa’s My Expert Opinion podcast, their first reunion since their intense bar rap battle last August, and the couple took a moment to analyze what might have initially pushed Eminem and Snoop to a boiling point. life and family, Method Man opens up to his perspective. “In a room where it’s just us, when we kids say things like that,” Meth explains. shit d isn’t taken in any way, but when it’s in a public forum, it takes on a completely different light.
I can sit here and tell my best friend Joey, shut up, fuck Joey. When it’s just me and him, he’s not going to take it in any way, but when we’re in a room full of motherfuckers, now it takes a whole different light.
He said “I think Em should have looked at it as boys being boys,” continues Meth. “He don’t like your music, so? He ain’t say he don’t fuck with you. He just said he don’t play that shit. For Eminem, who’s revered not just by white kids but black people, cause we know he respects the genre…If people want to draw lines in the sand, that shit was already there. There’s such Eminem Stans, the n***a could say the wackest bar and they’d be like oh my god, did you hear what Eminem just said?” He laughs. “Same thing with Snoop. I’m pretty sure Em heard verses from Snoop where he was like ‘that shit was garbage.’ He could tell Snoop that, but Em is the type of person who would only tell Snoop that in a safe space because he understands the ramifications of making that public.”
He continued “Snoop on the other hand, he’s not even a rapper no more,” continues Meth. “He’s beyond superstar. Everything he does is public forum, you gotta take it with a grain of salt. One time I said Snoop was the worst rapper/actor I ever seen. Next time I seen Snoop, it wasn’t nothing! The n***a could have given two fucks cause he got the check already!” He also notes that Eminem doesn’t necessarily have “thick skin,” a conclusion made evident by his records. “If anybody say anything sideways about him, he went apeshit on them to the point where he ruined careers,” explains Meth. “But we love that shit because that’s where the culture came from.”
Also added “Everyone Em ever dissed on record, he hated their asses, but he don’t have that energy with Snoop,” he says. “So it hurt him, as opposed to igniting him.”
