While Eminem’s recent album has confirmed his ‘King of rap’ status for millions of people, rapper Gucci Mane is not impressed.
When radio host Rickey Smiley asked the question of whether or not Eminem should be considered the ‘King of rap,’ Gucci just laughed and said Eminem is someone he, nor other rappers, ever listen to.
He said “you got to come up with a better name… I ain’t playing Eminem in my car. You playing him in yours? You sliding around playing Eminem in the car with your old lady?”
Stefan Grant also agreed with Gucci, saying: “Gucci is me. I don’t know any regular black people who just ride around listening to Eminem in their free time. Or ever, really.”
Eminem’s 10th album, Kamikaze took the world by storm – it was released in Aug. 2018 where it debuted in the number one spot on the Billboard 200 and even his single “Killshot” got 38.4 million views on YouTube within the first 24 hours of it being posted. Sufficed to say, Eminem’s fans will be coming after Gucci Mane after this comment.
Eminem hasn’t yet responded to Gucci’s bold opinion about his music, but we’ll be on the lookout to see if he does decide to hit back.
