Quick question, why is Eminem allowed to recycle beats?

I don’t know if I’m the only one who realizes this, or maybe just the only one who cares, but it seems that the new Eminem single “Crack a Bottle” makes use of a beat originally found on Wu Tang Clan’s Think Differently Music. The original song, “Preservation,” which features both Del and Aesop was one of the highlights from that effort, and I don’t see how Eminem came to make it his own for “Crack a Bottle.”  The song is allegedly produced by Dr. Dre, so what’s the deal?  Help me out here.

“Crack a Bottle”:

“Preservation”:

you decide. Very similar beats.
