Hip Hop Week In Review: Snoop Dogg's Eminem Debate & FBG Duck's Murder Tests Chicago

Posted by

HipHopDX – This week in Hip Hop, violence once again made an artist’s music permanently stop but two of Hip Hop’s biggest stars in Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion are destined for new records in the wake of their “WAP” collaboration.

And Snoop Dogg reminded us the Hip Hop classroom debate can still heavily live online.

Snoop Dogg Creates Shockwaves By Omitting Eminem Off Top 10 List

The Doggfather’s grandiose opinion is bound to ruffle feathers, even when no disrespect is intended. Such was the case for Uncle Snoop following his July 29 Breakfast Club appearance where he admitted Eminem didn’t have a slot within his Top 10 rapper’s list.

“Eminem? The Great White hope?” Snoop asked while acknowledging Slim Shady’s skills but giving a certain N.W.A co-creator the ultimate credit. “White rappers had zero respect in rap, let’s keep that 1-thowwow. None. He [Dre] has probably put Eminem in the position to where he could be like labeled as one of Top 10 rappers ever. I don’t think so, but the game feels like he’s Top 10 lyricist and all that comes with it but that’s just because he’s with Dr. Dre and Dr. Dre helped him find the best Eminem he could find.”

After the conversation went viral, Snoop posted his Top 10 list (not yours), which was ripe with Golden Era legends such as Rakim and Big Daddy Kane.

For fans who thought Snoop was still bugging, Royce Da 5’9 entered the chat and admitted he ranks Snoop’s classic debut — 1993’s Doggystyle — over any Eminem project to date.

“Snoop is qualified to say everything he just said,” he wrote on Sunday (August 2). “And yes, I agree that Dre gave us the best version of Marshall we could’ve ever seen. I completely understand his criteria he’s going by. I’m the other way around as a fan. Snoop ain’t as high on my list as Em but I can’t live without Doggystyle. I’ll take that over any Em album… It’s all subjective.”

There’s nothing like a great Hip Hop debate.

City Of Chicago Braces For Fallout Following FBG Duck’s Murder

On Tuesday (August 4), Carlton Weekly, b.k.a. Chicago rapper FBG Duck, was gunned down in the affluent downtown shopping area known as Gold Coast. Once Lupe Fiasco heard the news, he equated the battleground to Beverly Hills’ famed Rodeo Dr.

Although his career was young in terms of notoriety, FBG Duck had built a stout reputation in the streets, one that Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot pointed out during a press conference.

“This is an individual who fancies himself as a rapper but is also a member of a gang. There’s been an ongoing conflict between his gang and another,” Lightfoot told the media. “He was live-streaming his travels through the city, and he was found.”

LaSheena Weekly, FBG Duck’s mother, retorted back at the Mayor saying, “To assassinate his character as if he was this gang-banging thug, run around Chicago terrorizing communities, is an outright lie,” as she pleaded for peace from all sides.

On Sunday (August 9), the Chicago Sun-Times reported three people were murdered and at least 32 others were injured during shootings across the city throughout the past weekend. However, none were said to be related to FBG Duck’s case.

However, investigators are confident FBG Duck’s hit stems from his latest single, “Dead Bitches,” where he derogatorily shouts out rival slain gang members.

Released on June 10, Duck was killed less than a month later.
