Kanye West's Music Voted Better Than Eminem In A Landslide
People always like to pit artists against each other and claim one is better than the other.
It all comes down to personal opinion and technically no one is 'wrong' in their belief, however when the majority is found, that artist or group can usually be crowned champion. It's called a democracy, look it up.
That has been done in the rap game and it seems like Kanye West's music has beaten Eminem's in a landslide.
The All Love Hip Hop Twitter page started a long-running poll that put a Kanye song against one from Em and asked people to simply choose what was better.
After more than 500,000 votes, Kanye won a whopping 18 of the 20 categories.
That is an absolute landslide victory and while there were a few categories where the margin was very slim, Mr West was a massive favourite with the audience.
The biggest margin was Kanye's 'Flashing Lights ft. Dwele' beating 50 Cent and Eminem's 'Patiently Waiting' 69.9 per cent to 30.1 per cent. 'All of the Lights' also defeated 'Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna' by 64.7 to 35.3 per cent.
Eminem won in only two categories, with 'The Real Slim Shady' beating 'Gold Digger' 53 to 47 per cent - which is a pretty decent win considering the latter is one of Kanye's biggest songs.

'My Name Is' also downed 'Diamonds From Sierra Leone' 50.6 per cent to 49.4 per cent - one of the slimmest margins in the whole poll.
Judging from the way the songs were paired, it appears the host made sure the songs both had features or the same artist to make it fair.
Eminem revealed earlier this year that he doesn't believe Kanye to be in the top of the rap game, not by a long shot.
YouTuber No Life Shaq instigated the debate by DMing 30 rappers and asking them: "Who is the greatest rapper of all time?"
He also posed the question on Twitter, and Marshall Mathers himself took the opportunity to reply with his verdict, listing the likes of Tupac, Jay-Z and Biggie Smalls, plus 'Redman, LL, Nas, Joyner, Kendrick, Cole, Andre, Rakim, Kane...'
Of course, he has listed a fair few there, and in 'no particular order', so it's tough to know who his absolute number one is.
