While making hints that a new album is in the works, Eminem and Snoop Dogg have formed a potent hip-hop relationship.
The song "From the D 2 to the LBC," which pays homage to both Snoop Dogg's and Eminem's native Long Beach, California, debuted on streaming sites overnight on Friday.
It is accompanied by a video in which the two rappers transform into animated characters akin to Bored Ape. "It has been a minute". Eminem begins the song by saying, "This should have happened a while ago.
Although he and Snoop have previously collaborated on records, this is their first head-to-head duet.
In the three-and-a-half-minute track, which was produced by Eminem and includes piano accompaniment from his longtime musical collaborator Luis Resto, both spit lightning-fast lines. Two area-code references appear in the chorus of the song:
“Put your doobies high if you reside in 213, let's see them blunts raised. Whether you east side or west side of the 313, let's see them guns blaze.”
