Eminem has nothin’ but love for Tupac.
When it comes to songwriting, the “Rap God” says Pac is the GOAT. While hosting his “Music to Be Quarantined By” show over the weekend on his SiriusXM channel Shade45, Em heaped praise on the West Coast rap legend.
Before playing “If I Die 2Nite” off 1995’s Me Against the World, he revealed why Pac’s pen was so potent. “This is one of them 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.”
During his “Music to Be Quarantined By” broadcast, Eminem also acknowledged EPMD for revolutionizing hip-hop with their blend of funk and rap, and revealed why Special Ed is one of his favorite rappers.
