Eminem Speaks Out About Tupac & Biggie's Rap Rivalry

Eminem is sharing his thoughts on Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.‘s rap rivalry.

The 46-year-old “Killshot” rapper opened up about the late rappers while hosting 12 Days of Dissmas on his exclusive SiriusXM channel Shade 45 on Tuesday (December 25).

Joined by SiriusXM host DJ Whoo Kid and Paul Rosenberg, Eminem discussed some of hip hop’s greatest diss records ever made. Listeners heard songs from artists such as LL Cool J, N.W.A., 2Pac, and more.

On the rivalry, Eminem shared, “That, I feel like, was the first time I ever heard anybody get that personal on a diss ’cause it was definitely – most of it, majority – was personal, below-the-belt jabs and s–t, but it was done so well, and the record was just co crazy.”

“That’s another beef,” he added. “The Tupac/Biggie thing was tough because you like them both, and you’re just stuck in this weird thing where you’re bumping the Tupac diss record, then you’re bumping something from Biggie that might be dissing him in it.”

Eminem also discussed the first 50 Cent song he ever heard and the “dangerous” energy he felt when listening to it.
