50 Cent Explains Why Eminem Is The Greatest Rapper Alive
There'll never be a time when all the world can agree on just who is the greatest rapper alive.
Statistically, Eminem is the most successful rapper ever, building his foundations with his first record The Slim Shady EP, and its follow up, The Marshall Mathers LP.
Now, close friend, collaborator and former protege of Eminem, 50 Cent, has explained why he thinks Em is the best there is. And to be honest, it's hard to argue with his logic.
Fiddy claims that he'd be nowhere near as successful as he is today if it wasn't for Eminem.
He then goes on to label hip-hop purely as 'black music', saying that sometimes as a black artist you just have to accept that a white artist is better at it than you.
The now declared bankrupt rapper and entrepreneur went on to compare Jay Z to Slim, saying that Em is still on another level as he's sold 60million more records.
He then ends the clip by saying: "It's tough for me to say some of this shit without sounding like a hater - but I don't care."
