Eminem's battle rap history is a huge part of his mythology.
However, N.O.R.E. doesn't believe Shady could compete as a battle rapper in 2020.
He explained on the My Expert Opinion podcast.
"Showmanship is something that unfortunately in battle rap you cannot teach. That is an experience. For a seasoned artist that has been twenty years in the game as an artist, it is hard for that man to go back and battle. And I think Eminem lyrically could beat a lot of people but I think the showmanship is going to kill him, bro."
Noreiga may have it in a bit for Em. He complained last month that Eminem wouldn't do his Drink Champs podcast.
That aside, do you think he's right about a 48-year old Eminem battle rapping?
