In Eminem's new interview with his Slaughterhouse artist KXNG Crooked who spoke on a topic that's been raised a lot lately.

During the chat, he addressed the accusation -- often thrown out by Lord Jamar -- that all white rappers are guests in the house of Hip Hop. [Jump to 21 minutes, but the whole interview is worth your while.]

“That’s the funny thing,” he replied. “I don’t know if I got a chance to say this yet. But the funny sh!t is, with the whole beef a certain person, I never said I wasn’t a guest. Like, I’m absolutely a guest. I never said I wasn’t. And I never said I was king of anything, right? I had a song called ‘Kings Never Die’ but that was the concept of the song. I’m like, “I can’t say I’m the king of Hip Hop,  so I threw Run-DMC in there, Jam Master Jay ... I don’t want to be the king of Hip Hop. Who the f*ck is the king of Hip Hop? Is there a king of Hip Hop? I don't ... People say, ‘Just because you sell the most records doesn’t mean you’re the best. Just because you can rap 40 million syllables doesn’t mean you’re the best.’ Like I care more rhyming the syllables. You know what I'm saying, I care more about the craft than any of the other stuff.”

What do you think about Em's explanation?
