Heavy weight rapper and Hip Hop mogul, Eminem, has agreed with Lord Jamar’s claims that he is a guest in Hip Hop, but he believe the shade was personal target and hate than reality.
Lord Jamar claimed last year that Whites rappers are guest to Hip Hop and dis Eminem for his lyrics about him on “I Will” off his album, Music to Be Murdered By.
In a Feb. 21 interview with KXNG Crooked on his Crook’s Corner interview series, Em actually asserts that he agreed with the claim that he was a guest in the culture.
“That’s the funny thing. I don’t know if I got a chance to say this yet. The funny shit is, with the whole beef of a certain person, I never said I wasn’t a guest,” he stated, referring that “certain person” who’s presumably Lord Jamar. “I’m absolutely a guest. I never said I wasn’t. I never said I was king of anything, right?”
Eminem goes on to explain that he loves the craft of lyricism and would never put himself above any MC in hip-hop.
“I don’t want to be the king of hip-hop. Who the fuck is the king of hip-hop?” he asks. “Is there a king of hip-hop? People would say, ‘Just because you sell the most records doesn’t mean you’re the best. Even though you can rap 40 million syllables doesn’t mean you’re the best.’ I care more rhyming the syllables. I care more about the craft than any of the other stuff.”
