Sorry guys, it's the truth. Will back in the late 80s and early-mid 90s trumps Eminem.

Even this is better than Eminem or 50-Cent for the matter.

That's the full version.

Is he a technically better rapper? No 
Is he a more enjoyable rapper? I'd say yes

@Vance Astro: Glad to see someone else agrees with me. Not being racist but if Eminem was black he'd sell a-lot less. He's so overrated it's ridiculous, I think 50-Cent is better but I'm in the minority and 50-Cent aint special either.

As much as I dislike Eminem, you have to respect his skills.

He wasn't talking about talent, he was talking about sales. Big difference.

#23 Posted by GodOfMischief (641 posts) - - Show Bio

But still, saying that colour would boost someone's sales is kind of ridiculous.

I don't think it's ignorance. I think it's just an observation on how people accept different styles of music. Eminem's work often comes off as a mockery of the genre. Would a black rapper be able to get away with that? I don't know but it doesn't make me ignorant to question it.

Eminem is definitely overrated. I'm tired of him being compared to rappers like Nas,Jay-Z,Notorious BIG,Rakim etc. Greats of the game who actually take the music seriously and keep some artistic and creative value in it. 50 Cent isn't lyrically a better rapper than Eminem but I agree he makes better music.

you have been wronged by not only your brain but the gods of judgement as well. it wouldn't matter if eminem was green with purple dots he'd still be better than most out there. as far as 50 cent he was beast back before he started rapping about nothing/money/woman/and all that. when he was rapping to piss people off he was beast.

as far as will smith being better than eminem..... as a skilled MC not in eminems league as a comedic rapper/mainstream soundtrack artist he's rich, not always meaning high quality.

Classic Eminem is a way better MC than Will Smith... now Current Eminem kind of sucks.

But I'm pretty sure it sort of did help Eminem as being a White rapper gave him notoriety and a gimmick although obviously being a great rapper also helped.

I hate seeing him being compared to Tupac, now I've met Tupac in the 90s and he was sensational. But people putting him up there with Tupac and Biggie is plain ridiculous, his lyrics I will admit are quite good but he isn't sensational. Will Smith is highly underrated as a rapper and is mostly looked as an actor, IMO Smith was one of the best, and people commenting ''oh my god, how ridiculous'' need to look at his work.

Lyrically, no Eminem is better but overall in the way he makes music, 50-Cent is better.

I don't think he holds a candle to Jay-Z either.

@Vance Astro: They're all great rappers I agree, I know Eminem does make songs to mess about with and joke around. But that's just his style, lyrically I still think he's at the top of his game.

There's plenty of songs that show his lyricsm, a lot of lines can over peoples heads. But we both have our own opinions, by the way I'm not saying that you don't understand any of his lyrics lol.

For it's time it was amazingly memorable. Even today it's memorable, it's been embedded into popular-culture. Eminem is quite good with his lyrics, but he isn't that special.

What exactly puts him up there with Tupac?
