50 Cent thinks Eminem has “surpassed” all of his hip hop competition.
The rapper was interviewed by Music Choice about Em, and he didn’t hold back when talking about his good friend’s career.
“Hip hop is black music, without question. And unfortunately, for some people, it’s tough to accept that you got a white artist who does it better than a white artist. It is what it is,” he explains.
50 continues by saying that you could pit Eminem up against any hip hop artist, and his friend would “eat that s*** alive.”
As for Jay Z, the “Animal Ambition” rapper claims that comparisons between him and Eminem are a product of Live Nation.
“There’s points that they’ll match, like Em and Jay at points. That was Live Nation… They’ve got to keep him hot enough to go get their money back. So they match ‘em up with Em, put them together ‘cause he got momentum connected to his relationship with Beyonce and his record with Alicia [Keys].”
The video comes to a close 50 Cent citing that Eminem sold “like 60 million records more” than Jay Z, asking, “How are you putting ‘em there like they’re equals?”
