50 Cent: Eminem Is More Hood Than A Lot Of People

(AllHipHop News) Eminem has been described as comedic, devilish, remarkable, horrible and almost every other descriptive under the sun, but 50 Cent may have just given him a new one. During an interview with Noisey, 50 spoke on Eminem being “hood”, how he is still underrated and more.

Eminem is by far the highest selling rapper alive and has won numerous awards for his lyrical capabilities. According to 50, Eminem “is really underrated because people have always been talking about him like, ‘The WHITE rapper Eminem’ instead of just ‘the rapper.’ He elaborates on why he views Eminem as underrated

Yeah, because the skin color thing is still there. He has so many skills and he’s more hood than so many people out there, people still put the skin color before anything and don’t give him enough credit. It’s like people saying Elvis Presley was only famous because he was white. He had, y’know, the rhythm of James Brown but he had his own thing. He was Elvis, he wasn’t just a white man. Things like that are going to be picked up between black people and white people and anybody, it doesn’t mean a person isn’t great because they’re influenced by something associated with another race. It doesn’t matter.

      Yeah, I hate to agree, but someone of 5if’s intelligence surely cannot believe the words that came out of his own mouth on this one.

      Nahmean? They always got a headline like “50 said THIS”. Then you see the video and he says it in like 1 second of the video. If the news didn’t point this sht out we probably wouldn’t even notice it. Or just see the context and blow it off like whatever.

      Fck do I really care what he think about Em?

    50 just stay home and count your money man. Be happy that you were once interesting and once had a career in music. Its over… Its over.. Stay home and count your money.

    50 is an idiot to say that the most commercially successful rap artist in history is “underrated” the fact of the matter is everybody including 50 is fully aware that Eminem’s core fan base looks and relates to him personally and as long as whites represent the majority, everything Em achieves will always be seen as white driven and that’s perfectly fine for him and artist like Macklemore especially from a business standpoint. The truth is 50 is just trying to use Em as a desperate sponsorship attempt to bring light back to his own crumbling career, by just saying what white Em fans want to her instead of just making good music and getting off Em’s nuts.

      I agree. I like fif but fif stays in EM’s good books so he can keep eminems fanbase..fif don’t give 2 shits about him or anybody for that.. *see lifelong friend tony yayo for reference*

    Feminem used to be ill now the white boy just does pop music. Same shit this white boy used to talk so much shit about doin pop music and now he makin that shit. Doing a tour wit Rihanna. This cra(ka had to sell out to sell records cuz his music quality dipped. Feminem aint hip hop, he pop and he aint definitely hood. This white boy is white trash no way is he hood. 5.0 just suckin up to the white man like a good uncle tom that he is.

    48 laws of power…. the first law?? Never Outshine your master.

    This nothing but master praising from 50 … as he should. He knows damn well Em is OVER rated not under RATED.

    Just because Eminem is from Detroit doesn’t mean he’s hood tho fif. Big sean from the d he doesnt seem hood lol.

  7. Brindle

    50 trippen!! I been around Em at the Wake Show several times, super cool, but far from hood… And for a black man to say Elvis had the rhythm of James Brown, I like 50 but he was talking out his a$$ on this one…

  8. grabo2003

    Very true. Em the best alive period but somehow top five dead or alive people seem to ‘leave’ him out simply because he is white.

    50! Mad love for you fam, but I’m not sure statements like that can be made, without at the same time, and on some level, dealing with the reasons the conditions are the way they are, back in SJQ, and many other so-called, “ghettos”. It is no mystery that individuals of your caliber, can only do so much, relative to “giving back”, and even less of a mystery as to why someone of your caliber “cannot” form alliances with those on your level, to actually create some form of union to strengthen efforts to afford adequate change in these said areas. We understand that, “power structure provision cap”, but given the history, which you either are not aware of, or are purposely not taking into account, it should surprise no one as to why Eminem may be, “underrated” in certain sectors of Hip-Hop, but if one were to go strictly by the numbers, they would be thoroughly confused. His “lack” of co-signature from, “those that matter”, is obvious, and is what this new world has built it’s foundation on, so trust that if it is ok to have an “adverse” effect on the flip, it should be ok in this instance, giving way to the law of averages, and is to be expected. 51st Law of Power: One must interpret all “scripture” equally, with no emotional attachment, and devoid of any ulterior motive.

    Why is this news…. If you have a true love for HIPHOP…. It don’t matter WTF outta people say bout EM….you already know the path Eminem took to be one of the greatest….hood or not he is one of the greatest of all time… Hands down!!!!

  11. IL4M

    Em from Detroit which is gutter, and he knew and associated with gutter cats and Em is wether you like it or not one of the best Mc’s to do it, PERIOD. CASE CLOSED! And on top of that he was the cause of one of the hardest ruiling hip hop groups ever 50 cent and G-Unit. Be a hater if you want, but just b real though and give credit to where it’s due.
