    Between Eminem and Snoop Dogg, who do you think is the more famous rapper? Who's more recognizable and more of household name across the world?

    I personally think it's Eminem but I can see the argument for Snoop. My great-aunt who doesn't listen to hip hop at all and is super out of touch knows exactly who Snoop Dogg is and thinks Eminem is a boy band like NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys...lol.

    I'm not talking about musical popularity because Em obviously wipes the floor with Snoop in that department but I'm talking about strictly fame and recognition.

    You should have added a poll, but I'd say snoops a bigger icon in America, more of a known face and name. He's f---in everywhere, and Eminem just stays in the studio. The only time he comes out is to drop a freestyle in some seedy setting like the basement I used to record videos in nowadays. He used to be a well known face/all over the place but that s--- faded cuz he hated it, Snoop loves the limelight. And I mean by being recognized for more than just music like Snoop has his hands in a lot of s--- which makes me feel he's more of an icon in that sense, however em is more of an icon in a different sense, like pretty much strictly music wise... I dono bro it's hard to explain but they're both icons in different aspects

    Snoop is a celebrity in a way that most rappers aren’t, he’s marketed himself as a meme so successfully that there are probably millions of people out there who have never heard his music but know who Snoop Dogg is

    Snoop has been in a f---ing TV commercial over here, like 15 years ago, and I bet there's still more people know who Eminem is.

    I think they're both among the most recognizable faces in hip-hop. Em wins though. He blew up like few do in any genre. Everyone knows who Eminem is, from kids to pensioners.

    Yeah. It's arguably Eminem. Snoop Dogg is probably more famous than 50 Cent though, right?

    in the US I'd say about equally recognizable. but ems more widely known for being "the best rapper" and Snoops more known for being a famous than for his music.

    In terms of popularity Em is the GOAT. We can discuss music and everything but like Koolo said globally speaking Em is the most iconic rapper of all time.

    Eminem's music is more popular so many of those searchs are for his music. Snoops music has faded from relevancy but almost everyone in America is aware of him as a persona.
