Eminem spoke about Tupac & Biggie during his "12 Days of Diss-Mas" radio show.
Eminem is widely regarded as one of the most potent battle rappers to have made it big in the music industry. Shady has made a career off of dissing others, ruining his rivals' momentum and clowning so many in his raps. The most recent of his targets has been Machine Gun Kelly, who exchanged a few tracks with Em over his Kamikaze album disses. Marshall sits atop the rap game and he decided to ring in Christmas Day by joining Paul Rosenberg and DJ Whoo Kid on Shade 45 for the "12 Days of Diss-Mas." During the special radio show, Em counted down twelve of his favorite diss records of all time, reaching way back to include songs by LL Cool J, Ice Cube, N.W.A, and more. He also touched on the beef between Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G, speaking on how it changed the climate of hip-hop music and influenced him as an artist.
The Detroit native touched on how he wasn't particularly rooting for anybody to come out on top during the feud, saying, "The Tupac/Biggie thing was tough because you like them both, and you’re just stuck in this weird thing where you’re bumping the Tupac diss record, then you’re bumping something from Biggie that might be dissing him in it."
He also says that, during their feud, both rappers got extremely personal, which is something that wasn't necessarily an issue before: "That, I feel like, was the first time I ever heard anybody get that personal on a diss ’cause it was definitely — most of it, majority — was personal, below-the-belt jabs and shit, but it was done so well, and the record was just so crazy."
Do you think Em got it right with his rankings?
