During a recent interview with RapMatic, the Brand Nubian MC (once again) fires back at Slim Shady and blatantly dismisses the multi-platinum selling rapper.
“My thing about Eminem and all that — and I hate bringing his fucking name up — my thing about this muthfucka is you can’t crown somebody king and circumvent the true kingdom,” he says. “Like white people will crown Eminem king because he sold the most records out of all rappers.ADVERTISING
“But, when we go into every day life of black people, people who are the originators of this shit, we don’t fucking listen to Eminem. We don’t listen to Eminem. We don’t go to the gym and turn on Eminem. We don’t listen to him on the way to the club. We don’t play him in the club … now, corny places I can’t speak for that.”
Jamar didn’t end his rant there. When the ever-so patient host tries to point out how skilled Em is as a lyricist, she gets shut down immediately.
“So the fuck what,” he snaps back. “Can he put words together? Yes. But that’s not all that Hip Hop is. Who gives a fuck if the content is shit? Who gives a fuck how good he can put cat rat bat hat together? If you’re talking about smacking your mother and taking pharmaceutical pills and the shit that doesn’t resonate with me, why do I care how good you can rap?”
He adds, “His content is wack, his delivery and his voice.”
Finally, he ends his tirade by talking about the aforementioned Kamikaze track, “Fall.”
“He did a verse about me,” he says. “You know how bad I wanted that song to be something good? It was wack. It wasn’t shit … nobody, only white people and people on the internet [talked about it].”
