Melle Mel: Nobody Wants To Rap Like Kendrick Lamar!!

Lyndon Abioye |

Melle Mel continues to throw shade at rappers over Billboard’s Greatest Rappers of All Time List…this time at Kendrick Lamar.

“Even Kendrick Lamar being No. 2. I don’t know,. Obviously, he made some good songs. But those songs don’t translate into the street part of hip-hop. That’s another level of hip-hip. I don’t know what records that he made like that. I might know one or two of them. But I don’t think you hear Kendrick in the club like that,” he said. “It might be a record that’s his record that I don’t know. It don’t translate into him being the No. 2 rapper of all-time. How does that happen? It shouldn’t. Because he’s fairly a new rapper.”

He again mentioned Eminem, who he previously claimed only made the top five because he is white.

Mel continued, “When Kendrick Lamar does these songs, nobody wants to rap like Kendrick Lamar. Nobody wants to rap like Eminem. A lot of people wanted to rap like’ Pac and Biggie…If after Eminem make his song and make his big splash in the game, if you don’t have 1,000 white rappers nothing changed. He’s good. He’s capable. He’s good. But to say he changed the game how’ Pac changed the game. It’s a big difference.”

Is he right?
