Top 5 in this motherfucka
It’s undisputed that if you’re discussing top 5’s, then Eminem will be in there. It has shown to be increasingly popular to list Eminem high on the lists of greatest rappers of all time, among names like Nas, Jay-Z, The Notorious B.I.G., and 2Pac. This was highlighted most recently in Big Sean’s firecracker of a song, Control. Big Sean listed “Em, B.I.G., and Pac” as what he grew up with. And then in Kendrick Lamar’s controversial verse, he rapped
I heard the barbershops spittin' great debates all the time
Bout who’s the best MC? Kendrick, Jigga and Nas
Eminem, Andre 3000, the rest of y'all
It is clear that Eminem’s additions to hip-hop music are enjoying growing recognition among the biggest names in the game.
It’s interesting to note Eminem’s own list of favorite rappers, in 2002’s “‘Till I collapse”:
Here’s the order of my list and it says: It goes Reggie, Jay-Z, Tupac and Biggie, Andre from Outcast, Jada, Kurupt, Nas and then me, but in this industry I’m the cause of a lot of envy, so when I’m not put on this list this shit does not offend me
A very similar list to those thrown around today, only it’s not Eminem adding his own name as a brag, but other rappers putting him there out of respect for his music.
