Dr. Dre declares Eminem the ultimate MC of all time, crowning him with the title of “Best MC Ever.”

Eminem and Dr. Dre are among the most iconic collaborative duos to ever grace the world of hip-hop. Even two decades and half into their relationship, The West Coast legend still believes that the Detroit legend is the best to ever pick up a microphone. Dre stopped by SiriusXM’s The Life of Mine With James Corden show on Thursday (March 14, 2024), where he championed Slim Shady’s greatness.

 

 

Dre reflected on meeting Eminem for the first time at Jimmy Iovine’s office in the ’90s and how their first time in the studio produced The Slim Shady LP‘s “My Name Is.” “I met Eminem at Jimmy Iovine’s office. We slapped hands, went to the studio and started recording and I’m not sure if anybody knows this, but I think the first four albums was just me and him and his writing and his delivery and his imagination is off the charts and I don’t think anyone would disagree with that.” said Dr. Dre.

Then he continued: “Hi, my name is, is the first thing that happened. I put the beat on and he just did that right away. We are in the studio. I hit play on it, and he just went ‘Hi, my name is!’ It happened that fast. No bullsh–t. And then we went from there and that was the beginning of this relationship. And I think he is the best emcee ever. Point blank, period. Of course there gonna be arguments about that because he’s white guy, you know. I don’t think anyone that is rapping can touch Eminem on microphone.”

Dre is also reuniting with an old friend for a new project, as Dre’s teasing an album on the way with Snoop Dogg: “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.”
