The Eminem Snoop Dogg feud seems for real and really deep.
KXNG Crooked is from Long Beach and was in Eminem's supergroup Slaughterhouse, so he knows both Snoop and Shady pretty well.
While he's a big fan of rap as a competitive sport, he thinks angry competition between Eminem and Snoop would be nothing but bad for the culture.
"For everybody who thinks that this sh*t is gonna just be two records going back and forth, or a few records going back and forth, you're very wrong. This has the potential to be the most polarizing beef ever in Hip Hop, you know what I mean? And for that reason, I think it's not good for the culture. I don't think it's good for the culture.
"This is going deeper than who had the best song. This is going deeper than that. They're gonna make this a racial thing. That's what's gonna happen. Every think piece, all of the comments. That's going to start a conversation that becomes bigger than the actual music, the diss records. The conversation will become bigger than the diss records. Trust me on that. They're gonna make it a racial thing and it's gonna widen the divide in the culture. That gap is gonna be like the Grand Canyon when they get done with this sh*t. You better understand what you're asking for. All the fans out there with their mouth open, saying they can't way to hear them go back-and-forth. It might not matter to you. You're just listening to music. But for those of us who have been existing in this culture for decades, you gotta protect it," Crook said.
"These are two icons. These are two legendary icons in rap culture, Hip-Hop culture, and pop culture. See what I'm saying? And with that status comes a lot of support on both sides. You're gonna have people stepping out, verified accounts, choosing sides. You're gonna have that conversation going, Black vs. white. It's gonna get ugly," he predicted. "I got love for both of those guys. I'd rather see them talk it out."
Do you agree?
