Eminem, one of the best rappers in the rap game has named another late rapper Tupac as the greatest songwriter of all time.
Eminem stated this on his most recent “Music to Be Quarantined By” show on his SiriusXM channel Shade45.
Eminem said: “This next song is from an artist that I feel like might be the greatest songwriter of all time.“Debate what you want about MC skills and all that because he had that too.”
On why Pac is one of the best songwriters, Eminem said while playing the song “If I Die 2Nite”: “This is one of the songs by Tupac that to me he was showing you like, I can write heartfelt shit and I can write lyrical crazy shit too,” he added before reciting lyrics from the Pac classic.”
“The play on the P words and how he was doing it was so crazy, mixed with the feel that Tupac could give you, which is constantly why I feel like he was always saying, ‘Can you feel me?’ Because you felt Pac. You can’t just listen to Pac, you feel Pac. If you listen to him, you’re gonna feel him.”
