Better Catalogue, Eminem or Jay-Z?

Both are definitely among the elite in hip hop....

Both considered to have classic albums under their belt...

For me, I feel like one of the best things about Hov is his consistency...he's put out a lot of consistently good/great material. Eminem is a lil more up and down in my opinion, but still has some excellent albums under his belt

So to the question, who's catalogue is better?

    MMLP is on the same level as Vol 1, American Gangster to me and i don't consider neither one of those albums classics.

    Slim Shady, KIM = Sunshine, I know what girls like

    im a bigger em fan, but he had that looong period were he was making wack music so alot of his songs suck unfortunatly...

    jayz i feel like his music has been declining since black album but he still makes cool tracks

    jay-z just cuz he has more good songs then em...even though i think em's best songs are better then jay's best songs

    lol shadyteam will come in this thread and start talkin about.


    Jay-Z doesn't have any soul in his music

    Jay-Z doesn't sing the hooks on his songs like Eminem does

    Jay-Z doesn't rap and produce most of his songs like Eminem

    Eminem makes his music from the heart that everyone can feel

    Eminem talks about what it's like being poor, political songs, personal family songs...Jay only raps about selling drugs and how good he is

    i like eminem but she makes me want to punch em in the face just to make her upset

    Don't think mixtapes count as part of an artist's catalogue

    Its really "The Black Album" and "Blueprint" vs. "The Eminem Show" and "The Slim Shady LP" to me ..

    The Black Album > The SSLP
    The Eminem Show > Blueprint ...

    The Black Album vs. The Eminem Show ..

    Threat, 99 Problems, Allure, The Interlude, Moment of Clarity?
    OR
    Soldier, Sing for the Moment, Till I Collaspe, Super Man?

    Eh .. I'll go with the Black Album and Jay's Catalgue ..
    Em have too many LOL songs, and 🤬 fillers for me ..

    Em is still in my top 5 and Jay is in my 10 ten, doe .

    Not really a big fan of either but i would go wit Jay. Em's production is usually a lil too dark for me.

    I would have to say Jay Z even though I favor Eminem over him I just think Jay Z has more classic hits than Eminem.

    No contest - Jay by a billion miles. The cross-dresser hasn't even been able to craft a hot album for the last eight years.

    Jay and consistency don't even belong in the same sentence....his catalog is suspect but compared to that white weirdo, he takes the win by a long shot. Eminem only has one decent album on his resume and that's MMLP.

    In all honesty, I didnt expect it to be this one sided lol

    Normally any eminem/jay thread turns into a hate fest

    I don't see how my post is "haterish", I'm being brutally honest....Jay's catalog consist of numerous sub par albums and as for the cross-dresser, his 🤬 ain't nothing to brag about either. Maybe if we're discussing sales then of course but if we're grading on the quality of his music, his 🤬 is 🤬 -poor. Eminem has one of the weakest catalogs in rap.

    Jay Z has a better catalog and it helps that he has more albums under his belt than Em.
