Dre Says Eminem Is The “Best MC Ever, Period!” – Also Talks New Snoop Project.

Dre recently spoke about his relationship with Eminem and why he thinks Em can out-rap anyone in the game — despite being a “White guy”.

in a new interview on SiriusXM’s This Life of Mine with James Corden, Dre recalls how he met Eminem for the first time. “I was just starting this new thing, this new campaign with Aftermath Records, and I was working on my second solo album at the time, and it was just OK,” he explained.

During that period of the 1990s, Dre was spending “every Sunday” at record executive Jimmy Iovine’s house to watch movies and check out new music.

“We would go down to his garage, which he turned into a listening room, and he would just play demos,” recalled Dre. “He just said one day, ‘What do you think about this?’ And he played this artist — which was Eminem — and I had no idea he was a white guy at the time.”

Dre said he couldn’t get enough: “I took it home with me, and I could stop playing this s—. Couldn’t stop playing it, and Jimmy called me the next day and he’s like, ‘You know it’s a white guy, right?”

“I’m like, ‘Oh, OK,’ so long story short, I met Eminem at Jimmy Iovine’s office. We slapped hands, went to the studio and started recording,” said the former Death Row Records president. “I’m not sure if anybody knows this, but I think [Eminem’s] first four albums was just me and him and his writing and his delivery.”

Dre also confirmed he is still working on a project with Snoop Dogg, which has been a hot topic of conversation for some time now.

“I know, as odd as it sounds, I’ve only produced one album on Snoop, which was in 1993, Doggystyle”. I mean, we’ve done some songs, and we’ve played around in between, of course, but that is the one and only album I’ve produced on Snoop, “Doggystyle”, so we decided to call this one Missionary. Snoop is really sounding fantastic, and people are gonna be really shocked and amazed at how we’ve been able to come back together after all these years and do something. It’s really interesting.”
