    Rakim Speaks on Em
    Monday - December 5, 2005
    J-23

    In a recent interview for foreign television, Rakim was asked what he thought about Eminem, his former label mate. The man who is often referred to as the God Emcee and regularly called the greatest of all-time, made some very flattering remarks about Slim.

    ”Eminem is nasty man, I don’t care what color he is. I don’t care about none of that nahmean? Real artists respect real artist’s man. Especially like a conscious artist that sits down and writes and hears another artist that sits down and does his writing…and he know…a brother nasty. Regardless, you can’t take nothing away from his thoughts and his pen, nahmean? Em is nasty man, I tell people to this day…if Em was black…he’d be the next Muhammad Ali man.”

    The R saying Em would be the G.O.A.T. if he had some melanin? Let the debates rage!!

    Rakim had class when he was at his peak in the late 80's. M&M debased his Mother on the international stage that no black rapper or Muhhammad Ali wouldn't of done.

    M& M has no class and used his fame to attack people

    That is the white mentality, and Eminem's audience is mostly white teens!

    If R is calling Eminmem The Goat, he might as well call MilkBone and ThirdBase and they white cat from Company Flo Goats too, they got tighter lyrics than M.

    R trying to get a deal man, he dun went from Classy to Ashy.

    Watch how R will magically appear on M's next single and or record.

    Eminem has skills, I'll give him that but him being compared to Muhammad Ali is more than a stretch. Again like I said the Rap Industry thrives off of the Anti-Hero image. Look at 50 cent. Music, Clothing Line, Videos, Record Label, Movies now Video Games. Just like the execs market and sell the image of a true to life gangster in 50 cent, they (Dre') have found a way to reach the so called disenfranchised white youth with Eminem. This is the lastest rage. The white youth are clammering for a taste of what it's like to live the urban nightmare. This is the new addiction. I can pretend to shoot people, sell drugs, solicite prostitutes, jack cars and when it gets to be much, I can turn the game off and go back to middle class suburban life. Eminem and 50 cent are making the best of their 15 minutes. Where will they will be when their time is up...


    Peace.....
