Snoop Dogg has spoken out about his recent rivalry with Eminem, calling the feud between the pair “family business”.

Last week, Snoop said that Eminem and him were “good”, surprising fans who believed the rappers to be arguing after both criticising each other in 2020.

Appearing on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Sunday (17 January), Snoop set the record straight and confirmed that the pair were “still friends”.

Speaking about the alleged feud, he said: “I think that’s family business and I don’t want to make it more than what it is.”

Reports of a disagreement came after Snoop said in an interview in July that he didn’t think Eminem was “one of the top 10 rappers ever” and that the rapper’s success was largely due to Dr Dre.

In response, Eminem referenced Snoop’s comments on the track “Zeus”, which was released in December.

“As far as squashing beef I‘m used to people knocking me / But just not in my camp / And diplomatic as I’m tryin’ to be last thing I need is Snoop doggin’ me,” he rapped.

Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, then suggested he was disappointed with Snoop’s comments, rapping: “Man, Dogg, you was like a damn god to me / Man not really, I had dog backwards.”

Addressing the lyrics on WWHL, Snoop continued: “He said what he said [on “Zeus”], I respect that. We just going to keep it right there. It’s family business.”
