Snoop Dogg is speaking candidly about his top 10 hip hop GOATs.

In a post to Instagram, Snoop revealed his top 10 rappers of all time. “A lot of n***as been crying about me leaving people off my top 10 [without even] seeing my s**t, so here it is,” Snoop captioned the post. “Notice how none of my peers or MCs after me are on the list … Gz is what I was taught if you’re offended you’ll get over it, I get left off a lot of top 10s. I’m not even on this one.”

On the list, Snoop credited Slick Rick, Ice Cube, LL Cool J, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Ice T, Too Short and more. In a recent interview with “The Breakfast Club,” the California native said that Eminem’s success can be attributed to Dr. Dre, who he believes put Slim Shady in a position of power.

“Eminem, the great white hope,” Snoop said. “White rappers had zero respect in rap. Let’s keep that one thou-wow. None. He (Dr. Dre) has probably put Eminem in the position to where he could be one of the top 10 rappers ever. I don’t think so, but the game feels like he’s a top 10 lyricist and all that comes with it. But, that’s just because he’s with Dr. Dre.”

In that same interview, Snoop explained that MCs from the 1980s are unmatched. “‘Cause it’s some n***as in the 1980s that he can’t f**k with…like Rakim, like Big Daddy Kane, like KRS One, like LL Cool J, shall I go on?” he asked. 

Back in June, Eminem revealed his top 10 rappers list on Twitter, writing, “For me, in no particular order, [Lil Wayne], [2Pac], [Royce Da 5’9], [JAY-Z], Redman, Treach, [Kool G. Rap], Biggie, and  [Kxng Crooked].”
