Eminem destroys rapper Melle Mel on diss track after comment about him being 'white'
| Last updated
Having been part of the biggest bust-ups in rap history, you'd think Eminem would have had enough.
Despite this, the rapper pulled no punches as he destroyed Melle Mel on a new diss track.
It's after the Furious Five member hit out at the titular 'rap god', arguing that he was only considered great because he is white.
Mel made the slight during an interview with The Art of Dialogue, questioning whether the musician deserved his spot on Billboard's Top 50 Rappers of All-time list.
Though the 62-year-old admitted that Eminem was a 'capable rapper', he pointedly told fans: "So now if Eminem was another n**** like all the rest of us, would he be Top 5 on that list when a n**** that could rhyme just as good as him is 35?
"That had records and all that? He's 35. He's white."
Naturally, Shady then responded with a diss track called 'Realest', during which he utterly destroyed the veteran singer.
Collaborating with upcoming artist and Shady Records signee Ez Mil, he rapped: "Hip Hop has been good to me, huh But when they say that I'm only Top 5 'cause I'm white, why would I be stunned?
"My skin colours still working against me/'Cause second, I should be, to none. Bein' white being why they put me at five (Nope)
"That's why they can't put me at one."
However, the ‘Rap God’ wasn’t quite done there, and even hit out at Mel’s alleged steroid use later in the track. (Ouch)
In a breakout moment, the ‘Mockingbird’ singer paid tribute to the veteran performer’s music, before delivering the final blow.
He continued: “Shoutout to Furious Five and Grandmaster Flash, but boy… There’s someone who really is furious.
“Stay out his path, his wrath avoid. It’ll be the last to toy with a juice head whose brain is half destroyed, like a meteor hit it…”
“Now with Melle Mel, he lost his ass to ‘roids,” concluded the rapper.
Whilst Eminem has come out as the obvious winner, Mel has yet to give up the fight and has made a response track of his own.
During his song, the 62-year-old referred to Shady as ‘Pee-Wee Herman’ and asked why they’d put him in the Hall of Fame.
Though fans might not be hyped for this rap battle, it seems that the two musicians are ready for round two already.
