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 don’t really understand why Macklemore gets so much shit. He only recently had one album that blew up, so it’s not like he’s been famous for years without acknowledging the color of his skin. And if you look up his older stuff, you will see that he has a song called “White Privilege”. I was into Macklemore before his shit was on the radio & if you listen to his lyrics, especially of the songs that aren’t particularly popular, you’ll see that he isn’t a bad lyricist. There are thousands of rappers from all around the world, of every single race/nationality, that don’t get famous. So to say that a rapper only got famous bc he is white, is just nonsense. You have to be very skilled and very lucky…now with that, I understand that if you are white, I’m sure it will help you get sales.. But you have to be good at what you do
