50 Cent On Eminem

Do y’all realize that eminem’s success is in large part because of the fact that he’s white? But I mean y’all can support that clown if you want to

At least he own up to that fact unlike Macklemore and Iggy. Em did a better job than any other white rapper at respecting the hip hop culture as someone outside joining.

I don’t know about that part. I’ll give him that but Em is probably one of most problematic rappers out there. The list of shit he did is disturbing long.

I’m not talking about his music. I’m talking about the way he came into the rap game. He didn’t just barge in here take rap, then peace out doing his own thing pretending like he created the shit. No he got a mentor, he learned the game, he is fully aware and recognizes that his white privilege shot him to the top. I’m still waiting for the name of another white rapper who has done this. You dont have to like his music to be able to recognize he approached this culture better than anyone else and let’s not pretend like there aint no black rappers out there just as problematic that y’all will worship to the death aka Childish Gambin

I agree that Em mastered the game. I agree that he can possibly go down in history as one of the greatest MCs of all time (even though people like to forget that DMX, Rakim, Treach, Big Daddy Kane, Redman, Method Man, Kool G Rap & KRS-One exist but I guess you can make the case that Em is the only one still doing it in the mainstream). I agree with what onlyblackgirl said entirely! But what I don’t agree with, & what people really aren’t doing well arguing, is what Fif said about Em being better than Hov solely based on the fact that Em sold more records. That’s like saying Bill Russel was better than Michael Jordan just because he won more rings. Bill has 5 more than Jordan but was he a better technical basketball player than Jordan? Contrasting it to pro-wrestling, you can’t say that Hogan was better than HBK solely based on the amount of titles he’s won, Hogan was still a shit wrestler. It’s all technique! It’s like that in any field of entertainment! Fif, as a rapper who was a pretty good lyricist in his prime, should know better than to bring statistics in! If Fif had said that Em was a better technical rapper than Jay, that would’ve been fine! Now, to the people who wanna use this argument:

"But technique determines how many records you sell."

Uh, that’s not true at all! Nicki Minaj put out 2 shit albums & they both went platinum! Lil Wayne is considered a best selling rapper, yet the only good album he’s put out were his first 2 albums. Technique doesn’t always determine how many records you sell, for the most part, it’s the name/brand. & as far as Em goes with albums, lemme put this in perspective for you…I don’t think Jay ever put out a shit album. Maybe his last one, Magna Carta, but that’s just 1. Em put out 3 SHIT ALBUMS IN A ROW: Encore, Relapse, & Recovery.

All I’m saying is that Fif knows better than to say what he said. When talking about the best, you can’t just bring statistics in, especially if that part is a very lopsided thing to debate.

Idk what that has to do with anything but ok.

Also “better” is only determined by personal preference. Y’all can keep bashing Nicki Minaj and keep trying to ignore that she spits better than every just about male in the game today but will always be shit in by men Cuz she’s a black female threatening the male game. Clearly her success says they weren’t “shit albums”

^ Oh, you’re a Nicki-mark? Well then I’m just not gonna debate with you on Nicki Minaj solely based on the fact that your response wasn’t objective at all. Peace!

No music preference is objective. The fav that you dismiss her be use she’s a female isn’t objective either. You have zero facts to support that she’s crap meanwhile she has broken record after record that proves otherwise and proven time and time again that she can rap. I bet you worship Iggy and Macklemore tho.

Do white people really think we are going to give Shane Dawson a pass because he deleted videos and apologized? You singer to do whatever the fuck you want and except to get off the hook for your actions jus cuz you apologized. So that means I can walk up to you, break your nose then apologize now you have no right to blame me or be mad because I apologized so get over it.

I'm a latina from NYC, and as you may know, many of us grew up mixing our own slang and language with myriad terms from aave. I'm blonde, blue eyed, and light skinned and Puerto Rican (my family runs the gamut from light to dark) but since birth I have been surrounded by family and friends who use aave terms. Are we wrong? Hip hop is something the latinx community has also been a part of since its inception. People mimick what they're exposed to, ESPECIALLY language. How can we avoid (cont)

appropriating black language and culture when its so pervasive in American culture. I understand it’s often eyes using slang in ways that demean and degrade poc to say, “haha, this black person talks funny,” but isn’t there a medium?

Honestly all i see in this ask is a bunch of excuses as to why you should be allowed to get a pass on appropriation. “Hip hop, exposure, pervasive etc” There is no medium to appropriation, end of story. You don’t get to have fun playing with black culture while shitting on black people.

Tumblr has taught me more about feminism, womens rights, rape culture, slut shaming, mental illness etc, more than school ever had. So don’t you dare tell me this website is a complete and utter waste of time
