    I have grown in a generation where I am looking for the Slim Shady, who’s the real shady, yes I am the real shady. Eminem is a great rapper and songwriter. Although he does not have a lot of hit rap songs right now, he will always be one of the greatest of all time.

    I think Tupac is the greatest rapper of all time. But the problem is that he was in an era where rappers really fought one another and gangs really hated each other’s guts. Too bad Tupac died early. He might have done a lot more songs that would have influenced his generation.

    You are missing a lot more rappers who are, I think, better than Eminem. We have Notorious B.I.G., Ice Cube, Busta Rhymes and so much more. Jay-Z and Eminem are more mainstream, I guess. Even Tupac was a celebrity in his time. But there are more true blood rappers than them.
