Even though Eminem and Snoop Dogg have since stopped feuding with each other, a lot of people on the internet have been discussing the bad blood and whether it was as raw as the media speculated. Hot New Hip Hop says a new rapper has come forward to discuss the controversy: Method Man.
During a recent appearence on Math Hoffa’s My Expert Opinion podcast, the rapper and the host took a moment to reflect on the feud between Snoop and Eminem. Method Man offered his two cents on the matter, saying how it probably started out with the way men usually talk with each other when no one is around.
Method Man stated that rappers will tell each other privately that they don’t like each other’s music, but when it’s aired out in a public forum, it becomes something else. The Wu-Tang Clan member said he could sit in the room and talk smack to his friends, but in public, it’s a different matter entirely.
You can check out what Method Man had to say in the YouTube video below:
Method Man went on to say that he thought Eminem should’ve looked at it a bit differently. He shouldn’t have taken it so personally; he should’ve just thought of it as another man saying he didn’t listen to his music very often.
Method joked that there are a lot of people who Stan on Eminem and Snoop Dogg as well. Even if either party said the most “wackest bar,” there are still a lot of people on the internet who would think it’s the best thing ever, simply because it’s coming from them.
To summarize the rapper’s sentiments, Method Man believes Snoop Dogg and Eminem are just on different wavelengths these days. Eminem took it a little bit too personally because he would normally say something critical only in the private forum simply because he’s still a rapper and is only a rapper.
Snoop Dogg, on the other hand, has reached all forms of public life, including in the film business and more. In other words, everything Snoop Dogg says or does is in the public forum and he doesn’t distinguish between what’s private and what’s public in the same way that Eminem does.
