Killer Mike: I know a few people have named Eminem, a lot of them were d... sucking, they just wanted to name another rapper that was better than them. They’re d... riding because its a white guy and it would be cool to say. I say Eminem because bar for bar he is the super manifestation of super rapper. He attempts and succeeds at cramping so many syllables at different times. If youre not talking about Kool G Rap or Big Punisher, you’re not talking about anyone else in this league. When you talk about the speed knot flow, the precision, the harmony within the flow, because Eminem uses harmony a lot too- people don’t give him his credit for that.
I love Eminem because he made us understand what the white kids who were attracted to the energy of rap, what their life was like. Beyond that, he confident enough in his own skill to sign an artist who could have possibly overshadowed him, had he been a weaker ego of man like a lot of the black contemporaries are. He was so passionate about making sure rap is still dope that he signed 50 cent. He is the prototype of how every rapper slash fan should be, someone who loves rap enough to do what’s right by rap. Him giving the world 50 cent, he did what was right by rap and I really mean that.
Bar for bar no one is touching him, bar for bar no one is fucking with him and dudes know it. He does his white boy shit and pulls me into another world. Eminem takes me to not only Detroit and Eight Mile, but what its like to grow up crazy and white in America. Now that’s dope music!
