Mee234: Nas may not have as commercial sucess as Em, but he(Nas) is head over shoulder above eminem
head & shoulder in what? what exactly would nas do better than eminem?
lyricism? no song making? no freestyle ability? no - what exactly has nas got over eminem apart from the name? we tend to overhype these old-school rappers but if you laid bare their lyrics, it's got nothing.

|Re: Is Eminem Really The Rap God? by Artorius(m): 5:50pm On Dec 04, 2013|
Al these folks saying Eminem ain't a rap god are making me laugh. Are you tryna say Eminem isn't better than the other people you are calling? if it came to a freestyle rap battle to decide who the rap god is, won't Eminem slaughter Al these rappers you guys are calling? Please just stop begrudging and bow

Are you suggesting Ra never battled other Mcees in the '80s? Ask Biz Markie, a comrade-in-arms, if in doubt
Do you know what it means to lay down 18 bars on a track, while cutting your teeth much earlier on in the game?
I am beginning to wonder why I am debating Ra's place in the hall of fame, when I actually rank Naz ahead of eminem also.
By the way, your analogy about my primary school teacher would only be relevant if she's remained trapped in a time capsule. As Rakim clearly hasn't, it is rather misplaced here.
For the avoidance of doubt, eminem's lyrical prowess is indisputable. What I quibble, however, is any opinion that ranks him ahead of those who not only trail-blazed the game but have continued to conquer new frontiers, across a generational gap.
Rakim influenced songs bY Jay-Z Nas The Notirious BIG-Lil Wayne and countless other other rappers use many of his lyrics in his songs often without giving credit Tributes to Rakim cover
|Re: Is Eminem Really The Rap God? by coogar: 5:59pm On Dec 04, 2013|
lyricism? no one comes close to eminem. how do you want it? polysyllabic rhymes or wordplay? punchlines or sick metaphors?
abeg - eminem will make nas cry.
you have a way of making things up. you said eminem epitomises commercial sales, i countered back that eminem was discovered in a rap battle competition so he's not your average lil wayne or kanye west. he started from the pits & worked his way up the ladder.
nas ahead of eminem is just pushing it. even amongst nas peers in the 90s, he was never considered awesome. biggie, big l, big pun, 2pac were greater.
rakim is still trapped......
these people just write songs like writing an essay. how much work do they put in writing lyrics? how much of their lyrics are polysyllabic? how much punches do the lyrics pack? wordplay? if you compare what embodies lyricism now & what it was then, you would be embarrassed.
mention one rakim's album greater than MMLP. remove album sales or media hype - just compare the pen game, the art of story-telling & the lyrical dexterity. paying tribute to rakim is just saluting the man that paved the way for the upcoming rappers - it has nothing to do with their lyrical ability.
eminem is 100 times greater than rakim!!

fruityjojo:lol...hehehehe..i like Rick ross ooo....but He aint nothing compared to Marshal Mathers. ..u are right bro,ppl can be funny.
...........I so started to rock fellow
When I'm not even in my harshest
You can still get roasted 'cause Marsh is not
Til I'm toppling from the top I'm not going to stop
I'm standing on my Monopoly board
That means I'm on top of my game and it don't
Til my hip don't hop anymore (shit)
When you're so good that you can't say it
'Cause it ain't even cool for you to sound cocky
People just get sick cause you spit
These fools can't drool or dribble a drop anymore
And you can never break my stride
You never slow the momentum at any moment I'm
about to blow
You'll never take my pride
Killing the flow, slow venom and the opponent
Is getting no mercy, mark my words
Ain't letting up, relentless
I smell blood, I don't give a Bleep: keep giving
Where was you when I fell and needed help up?
You get no love

emilus akpos: Typical black people mentality, can't stand the fact that Eminem is a rap god just because he ain't black. Lyrically Eminem will absolutely destroy tupac, the only rappers that can stand him are nas and rakim. If tupac was alive today, he will be completely irrelevant. The only reason people rave about PAC was because of the circumstances behind his death.Eminem rapping technique wise, he is miles ahead of anyone, dead or alive.Lol only reason people rave about 2pac was because of circumstances behind his death.thats Bs.tupac came from black panther activist family's her mum was philanthropist and former political activist. Tupac attempts reconciliation between the black and white in American because of the racial tension he also exposed the Institutional racism in American

|Re: Is Eminem Really The Rap God? by mayor007(m): 6:37pm On Dec 04, 2013|
He is one of the best at crafting rhymes. He fits a large number of rhymes into each line with multisyllabic and internal rhymes. His ability to bend word pronunciations allows him to pack more rhymes in and be more expressive. Also, these rhymes that aren't quite perfect tend to be more interesting to hear.
Diversity of Flows
His flow varies a lot from song to song. Shake That, Soldier, Crazy in Love, Never Enough, The Way I Am, Stay Wide Awake, Business, Infinite, Tonite
Comedic: My Name Is, Just Lose It, We Made You, My Fault
Introspective: Going Through Changes, Talkin 2 Myself, Cleanin Out My Closet, Deja Vu, Beautiful, If I Had, Sing For the Moment
Sentimental: You're Never Over, Mockingbird, Hallie's Song
Energizing: Not Afraid, Lose Yourself, Til I Collapse, No Love
Story Telling: Stan, '97 Bonnie & Clyde, As The World Turns, Brain Damage
Respect of Peers
It can be difficult for a rapper to cater to the tastes of the rap community and the public at large. The public tends to respond more to the beat and the chorus, while other rappers are more impressed with the technical elements like rhyme schemes. It is tempting for rappers to neglect the technical elements since they make more money from the beats/chorus. As Jay-Z famously quipped, "I dumbed down for my audience and doubled my dollars." Em and Jay discuss this on their song Syllables. One of the impressive aspects of Eminem's music is that he manages to do both at once. Some of his most popular singles are also among his most impressive technically (cf. Lose Yourself).

fruityjojo: I take offence to dat god in capital letter! 2 me, Eminem is d best rapper alive! Himself & his alter ego slim shady
Why? because its a white man's world!! white man say something is good and we conform! same way they are making justin bieber look extraordinary meanwhile the guy dey sing nonsense, same way they made michael jackson change his skin color cos they couldn't bare the fact that a black-man was the king of pop. Eminem is a good rapper but god of rap?? helllll to the NO!!! does he have flows like Tupac, kendrick lamar? does he have punchlines like kanye west, Nas? even lil wayne!!!wtf?
