    Interesting s---.

    3:00 mark


    Eminem wrote "Forgot About Dre" and it was initially intended for Dre and Snoop.

    Em is a talented mof-, writing other peoples verses.

    Well, the part that surprised me was that I just found out that Still DRE exists thanks to Iovine. He basically made Dre do it and it's most popular song he has ever done. As I remember, the Interscope was behind the making of Real Slim Shady too. They basically forced Em to do another single instead of Who Knew at the time. It was probably Iovine too. It's amazing how great he was at his job but somehow, he and the whole crew kinda lost their touches I guess...

    iovine making Em go back and come up with another single also resulted in him recording The Way I Am and Remember Me? too.

    He didn’t write dre new verse on ems album tho? Sly wrote it from what I understand, or at least that’s what I was told.

    Did you even listen?

    Em wrote the whole song, meaning Snoop's verse too. All Dre and Snoop had to do was lay their vocals on it.

    I thought this was interesting to hear considering Snoop and Em's little beef and people's claims that Snoop uses ghostwriters.

    Everybody knows Em wrote Dre's verses on most of their s---.

    Snoop has been open about using ghost writers. It’s weird because I had someone get mad at me for saying he does a couple weeks ago on here. But look at his interviews leading up to his Ego Trippin’ album. He admitted to having ghost writers write almost the whole album. What’s interesting from this video is he was obviously doing it before that.

    This. Plus, Watcher sounded a lot like Em's writing as I remember but haven't listened to that in a long time so...

    What's crazy to me is how can you even call yourself an artist if you aren't writing your own s---.

    I mean it's understandable for singers not to write their own s--- because their voice is their main talent but as a rapper, that's your f---ing job. If you aren't writing your own stuff then what the h--- are you doing? Lol

    Yeah... I’m cool with like Dre not writing his stuff, but it’s weird Snoop no longer does. Ice Cube also has used ghost writers late in his career.
