In his song ‘Till I Collapse, Eminem lists rappers who he feels are best on the scene. In ascending order, it includes Reggie, Jay-Z, Tupac Shakur, Biggie, André 3000, Jadakiss, Kurupt, Nas and then himself.
It itself shows that Eminem considers Tupac and Notorious better than himself. In his interview, talking about these 2 rappers, Em said, “His (Tupac’s) ***** songs felt like something — 'Holy *****, I want to ***** punch someone in the face when I put this CD in.' Biggie told stories. I wanted to do all that *****."
So this question gets nullify when Eminem himself admits that there are greats who are better than him.
But then, of course, as fans we can’t help but compare everyone with our own definite opinion and preference.
However, according to a list of IMDB on ‘Top 10 Best Selling Rappers of All Time’, Eminem ranks at the top, followed by Kanye West, Jay-Z, Tupac Shakur and DMX.
Tupac Shakur - Pac's music is viewed as verse—enveloping verses about his own battles, bigotry, experiencing childhood in neediness, social ills, detainment and his youth. His music has motivated this age of rappers like Kendrick Lamar and Eminem. The forceful stream and melodious abilities that make Tupac an artist is the reason many contend he is the best ever. Tupac has sold more than 75 million records around the world, with the heft of that coming after his demise; seven of his 11 platinum collections were discharged post mortem.
The Notorious B.I.G - Biggie dropped follows the sort of cleaned specialized abilities nobody had ever heard previously. Simply tune in to "Delicious. Big deal's rhyme design was constantly imaginative yet extremely basic. He didn't utilize numerous enormous words yet he figured out how to keep up the mind and cunning in his bars. Big deal had the ability to exchange streams inside sections yet keep it energetic and basic enough for the group of onlookers to pursue. Big deal has sold 58 million records, he sold a greater number of collections than Pac when they were both alive.
Eminem - Eminem grew up tuning in to Tupac and Biggie as he has referenced in a few articles. He has commended both Pac and Biggie in his tunes and I for one feel Eminem took motivation from specialists like Pac, Biggie, The NWA team, Rakim and so on. He is melodiously unbelievable and Rakim said it himself - if Em was dark he would be Muhammad Ali of Rap. Em is a shrewd rapper and contributes so much melodiously and musically to his fans. His rhyme designs are stunning and he can crush a million words in a few bars. His pleasantry can't be coordinated! He is really a Rap God. Eminem has sold 100 million records.
