DMX and Tupac Shakur definitely had some things in common.
Both had a bad boy, outlaw image, and they were often seen shirtless with a bandana on their head.
Both also passed away far too soon and left a huge cult following behind.
But who was the better rapper?
Cam'ron and Ma$e believe it was DMX, an opinion they shared on Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast [Jump to the 26:10 mark]
"I know n*ggas love 2Pac, but I didn’t get to see him on tour or do anything else. So for me, it’s DMX because I actually got to be a part of and see him from the tournament rapping to selling 10, 20 million or however many millions of records he sold," said Cam.
Ma$e gave his take after that and said he too beared witness to DMX's greatness.
"I would definitely have to say DMX because when you saw the energy he poured, that DMX gave n*ggas, you could just stop one lyric that he would be saying and the whole arena would say it," Ma$e explained. "Like DMX was one of those special, special talents."
He continued. "When I first heard DMX in the studio, I was like, 'This n*gga is just different.' Pac was phenomenal too, I can’t take nothing away from Pac, but DMX had more than Pac. I'ma go on the record and say he had more than Pac."
