Hip-Hop pioneer Melle Mel recently had some things to say about Kendrick Lamar and Eminem. 

In a recent interview, Mel spoke about Eminem making the top 5 of Billboard’s top 50 rappers of all time list.

“Obviously, he’s a capable rapper. If you was talking about sales, he’s sold more than everybody. If you were talking about rhyme style, okay he got a rhyme style. But he’s white. He’s white! So now if Eminem was another n***a like all the rest of us, would he be Top 5 on that list when a n***a that could rhyme just as good as him is 35? That had records and all that? He’s 35. He’s white."

This obviously didn't sit well with some people, one of them being 50 Cent

50 jumped on Instagram in a now deleted post and called Mel out, calling him a hater. 

“There was more money selling dope than being in Hip Hop when Melly Mel was popping, the culture has grown so much. i’m not sure if it would be what it is today without artists like Eminem. Sh*t I’m not sure I would be who I am without him, but you know it’s competitive, so n***as gonna hate. LOL f*ck outta here! we sucker free.”

What do you think about Mel's comments?
