YouTuber NoLifeShaq has been sliding into the DMs of the biggest names in Hip Hop to ask just one, but ultimate question: “Who is the greatest rapper of all time?”
Most responses have contained a list, as choosing just one favorite rapper of all time is as difficult as choosing your favorite Harry Potter movie (for us it’s whichever one we’re watching).
And although Eminem didn’t reply in time to make the video, he did tweet NoLifeShaq his answer when the episode aired.
First, he named in "no particular order,” Lil Wayne, Tupac Shakur, Royce da 5’9, JAY-Z, Redman, Treach, Kool G Rap, The Notorious B.I.G., and Crooked I. But he wasn’t finished there, following up by shouting out some more names, LL Cool J, Nas, Joyner Lucas, Kendrick Lamar, J.Cole, Andre 3000, Rakim and Big Daddy Kane.
Like we said, choosing just one is hard. And this isn’t the first time Eminem took a stab at ranking his top MCs. In his 2002 song "'Till I Collapse," he raps, "I got a list, here's the order of my list that it's in/ It goes, Reggie, Jay-Z, Tupac and Biggie/ Andre from Outkast, Jada, Kurupt, Nas and then me.”
NoLifeShaq was shooketh by Em’s late submission, as we would be too. Check out his reaction to the Detroit rapper’s response below.
