Melle Mel On Eminem Being On Top 50 Rappers of All Time List: It’s Because He’s White!!

Melle Mel thinks Eminem is just an average rapper and says the only reason he made the top 5 of Billboard’s Top 50 Rappers of All Time list is because of the color of his skin.

“Obviously he’s a capable rapper. If you was talking about sales, he’s sold more than everybody. If you were talking about rhyme style, okay he got a rhyme style. But he’s white. He’s white,” Mel told The Art of Dialogue. “So now if Eminem was another n-gga like all the rest of us, would he be Top 5 on that list when a n-gga that could rhyme just as good as him is 35? That had records and all that? He’s 35. He’s white.”

Em was number 5 on the list, while Mel was number 48. He said Royce Da 5’9″ is just as skillful as Em.

He continued: “And anybody could be as mad. They could feel how they wanna feel. If you don’t think that race plays a part in the equation of how great he is…I heard one of the dudes that’s down with him, [mislabelling Royce Da 5’9″] or one of those – I heard he’s just as good as Eminem. Why he ain’t as big as Eminem? Because he’s Black! Ain’t none of that sh-t hard to figure out. Eminem gets a top spot because he’s white.”
