I asked if my skin pale, would I then sell like Eminem or Adele?
This would be an interesting point.. if Eminem himself hadn’t already addressed it ten years ago
ps umm… J Cole… read our blog post on you as the antithesis of Wale — you ARE light-skinned homie! On the other hand it shows that he thinks about what if he was 100% white like Eminem and Adele would he be as big as they are because of how they look.
Very similar to Fredro Starr on his song What if where he says, “what if Eminem was black, would he have sold 5 mill? or would he have been one of 5 million rappers without a deal?”
