The Detroit crowd exploded as Drake introduced hometown 8 Mile man Eminem as the “greatest rapper that ever get on a mother— microphone.” Drake bowed to the king, who replied that “it’s an honor to share the stage with this man right here.” So much love going back and forth. And so much for the Em-Drake beef, which never had any meat on the bone to being with. But Em, by his own admission once upon a time, doesn’t agree with Drake calling him the best ever.
In “Till I Collapse” Eminem makes a list himself: “It goes Reggie, Jay-Z, Tupac and Biggie. Andre from Outkast, Jada, Kurupt, Nas and then me. But in this industry I’m the cause of a lot of envy so when I’m not put on this list this shit does not offend me.” Though just to be clear, and Drake knows it, Eminem does end that cut with the lyric “Feels like no one can beat me.” And that was way back in 2002. False modesty maybe? When he says no one can beat me, Eminem sounds like he really, really means it.
