50 Cent Explains Why Eminem Is Underrated

During a recent interview rapper 50 Cent recently spoke on why he feels Eminem, who has sold the most albums in the history of rap, is still underrated. 50 feels EM doesn’t het enough credit because a lot of people judge him by his skin color.

According to 50, he feels people have always looked at Em as just “The White Rapper”.

 “Em is really underrated because people have always been talking about him like, ‘The White rapper Eminem’ instead of just ‘the rapper,'” 50 Cent says in an interview with Noisey. (HipHopDX)

50 also explained how he thinks EM is still underrated because people don’t give him enough street credit due to his skin color.

“Yeah, because the skin color thing is still there,” 50 says. “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.” (HipHopDX

    I love Eminem but I don’t like this photo of him and don’t believe that he would like to be portrayed this way. I mean really, next to 50 could he “look” anymore “white”. He looks like Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man.

      To disappointed eminem fan……Your not a real fan because you would no that shit is from a video he did with 50 and he is portraying rain man in the video, you moron. No your shit before you speak on it or be prepared to be corrected!!

    I don’t think anyone cares about Eminem’s skin colour..It was an issue back in the 90s for a lot of people because there weren’t any white rappers but now everyone dealt with it.Afterall he has sold over 100 millions and for me he is the greatest of all!So who gives a fuck?

    I never understood his power as a musician/ rapper until I saw him perform live. He’s definitely not faking it- he is talented.
