For decades, the question of “who’s the greatest rapper” has always lingered in the world of Hip Hop. Fans have always voiced their opinion on who they feel is best. This past weekend, Eminem, one who has always been in the conversation, took to Twitter to respond to a tweet that asked the decade-old question.
On Saturday, Em decided to reply to a Twitter post from NoLifeShaq asking: “Who The Greatest Rapper Of All-Time?” The idea of the video was to DM 30 different rappers — including Em, Joyner Lucas, Hopsin, and more — in an effort to get their selections.
To the social media personality’s surprise, he got an answer from none other than Em himself! The Detroit MC listed off Lil Wayne, 2Pac, Royce Da 5’9, JAY-Z, Redman, Naughty By Nature’s Treach, Kool G Rap, The Notorious B.I.G., and Crooked I as his top picks.
“For me, in no particular order,” he wrote. “Toss up between wayne, pac, royce, jay, redman, treach, g. rap, biggie and king crook.”
For me, in no particular order… Toss up between wayne, pac, royce, jay, redman, treach, g. rap, biggie & king crook….
