Hello there and thank you for the debate.
Eminem is not a superior rapper than Lil Wayne.

R1- "prove me wrong good luck" do tell how am I supposed to prove you wrong if you don't have any arguments you don't have any claims just one you don't have anything.

C1- Eminem is not a superior rapper to Lil Wayne because.............. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm lets put our thinking caps on well quite frankly I can't make any arguments because there are none to make the Pro must post his argument then I'll have a go at it by the way you have the burden of proof not me.

conclusion: I'm an old fashion kinda guy ;)

1. Eminem's lyrics are better
Eminem sings about real things like his drug addiction, his childhood with an abusive father, and his daughter Hailie. Occasionally he also adds some humor to his songs like Just Lose It.
All Lil Wayne sings about are money, girls, sex, and more sex.

2. Eminem has sold more albums
Eminem has sold more than 80 million albums worldwide with Marshall Mathers LP selling over 20 million albums worldwide.
Lil Wayne hasn't even sold more than 10 million albums world wide and his best selling album was only Tha Carter III with 3.2 millions albums worldwide.

3. Eminem is a white rapper and had a harder life
Being white is not easy in the hip-hop industry, especially for rapping. But he was able to overcome the adversity.
Eminem grew up in a poverty stricken family with an abusive father who eventually left. He also had to deal with his Uncle Ronnie's suicide which had a huge impact on his life.
All Lil Wayne did was just shot himself when he was 13.

4. Eminem is a better person than Lil Wayne morally
All Eminem had was a couple addictions to sleeping pills, a conflict with Mariah Carey, and some minor weapons charges.
On the other hand, Lil Wayne has been arrested for having marijuana, cocaine, MDMA, and weapons. He has also been in prison.

R1. You are basically saying because Eminem sings (not raps) about real things like his drug addiction, his childhood with an abusive father, and his daughter Hailie, And all Lil Wayne raps about are money, sex, and girls wait aren't these things real as well? So when you say Eminem is better because he sings about real things.................... So does Lil Wayne.
Your argument has no merit and is therefore no an argument.
R2. Eminem has sold more albums. One can argue that because he has sold more albums he is therefore a better rapper however this is not a valid argument assuming that a better rapper is based on the albums sold and also just because he has sold these albums doesn't mean anything we are debating whether Eminem is a superior rapper to Lil Wayne how many albums sold has no warrant on how Eminem is a superior rapper to Lil Wayne.

R3. Having a "harder" life has nothing to do with rapping. Eminem is white so he probably had more benefits that comes with being white.
R4- Morally- concern with the distinction between good and evil or right and wrong; right or good conduct
tell me is pharmaceuticals like marijuana granted they don't have the same effect but they're drugs nevertheless also Eminem has had weapons like Lil Wayne how can one determine who's more moral ( don't think it's possible to be more moral) than someone else you don't know what Eminem deems what is right and wrong obviously is not possible. So Morally speaking neither of them are moral men. ( lol moral men ).

conclusion: I don't really care about their lifestyle or personality or their hobbies or what they do while they're not in jail or having sex I want to know how eminem is a superior rapper to Lil Wayne.

Would have loved to see someone argue that Lil Wayne is a greater in number rapper.

Yeah of course Em is way better but Pro still needs to make a case.

Eminem is so much better than Wayne. It's not even funny. Everyone signed to the Young Money label pretty much sucks at making hip hop music.
