Aww nah, Big Slim Dogg.
"The great white American hope done hooked up with the king of the muthafu*kin west coast," rapped Snoop Dogg, on Eminem's Marshall Mathers LP classic "Bitch Please II." That was back in early 2000, while the legendary Up In Smoke Tour was getting set to go down; in case you're unaware, the stacked lineup included Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and more. Yet oddly enough, "Bitch Please II" marked the first and last time the pair connected on wax, despite having mutual acquaintances in Dr. Dre, Xzibit, and the late Nate Dogg. Sadly, Em and Snoop's joint musical legacy never had a chance to flourish.
That hasn't stopped the two legends from connecting, nearly twenty years down the line. With Snoop's "Redemption Of A Dogg" stage play set to kick off in Detroit, on October 27th, it only made sense for Snoop to make time for his old "nephew." The Doggfather posted a picture of himself and Eminem posted up in the studio: "had to c M. To get the stamp."
It's always nice to see two prominent names in the late-nineties, early-millennium Aftermath era link up; while Snoop was never actually signed to Dre's label, he played a prominent role on the classic album 2001. If this picture doesn't trigger your nostalgia, perhaps there is homework yet to be done.
