Eminem is still very much part of the rap game. In fact, he's one of the most prolific emcees around at 48.
He also has his eyes on some of the younger rappers. In a new interview with Zane Lowe, Em spoke on how rap has evolved and how it's in good hands.
“I feel like a lot of these kids won’t understand the experience of hip-hop in its infancy stages. … Everyone’s going to think their era is the best era, but this really was to me. … The golden era of hip-hop was the best era to me just because it was so new,” Eminem said. “You’d never heard it before. I know that I saw and heard a lot of people say that it wasn’t going to be anything. Like it wasn’t going to last or whatever. Here we are, what, 40, 50 years later? It’s crazy. And it’s the biggest music, if I’m not mistaken, it’s the biggest genre.”
Em then named his four favorite current emcees: Lil Wayne, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar and Joyner Lucas.
What do you think of his list.
