I would like to thank my opponent for taking this funny debate.

First off most people don't know what good music or poetry is, and that blinds them to what is and is not decent.
his songs may be a little out of hand sometimes but he is still getting his point across, wether he is talking about an ex or a life experience. New mainstream rappers are either talking about weed or other profound things all the time. but eminem is all round.

Im new at this debate thing but please don't let that hold you back. This is my first one.

Yes, I agree mainstream rap music isn't the best around and is really cheesy. This does not mean eminem is the only good rapper. We still have great rappers like Nas, Mobb Deep, 2pac, Lupe Fiasco and many more.

Please elaborate why Eminem is superior to those.

His lyrics in general are superior to anyother rapper plus if every rapper had the same voice you could tell who eminem is. He doesnt rap about weed and drugs alll the time, he has talked about his past present and future and i want you to tell me when has any other rapper done that and plus he is already voted number one by many others

Tupac talked a lot about his life and how unfair things can be. He also reminded us how we should look forward to good things in life instead of weeping about the bad things. He criticises society and the law and doing so fanatically it caused him his life.

Nas is great lyricist as well. One of the best and can definately outrhyme Eminem. He has a natural flow to his raps making it seem like he's telling stories instead of rapping. His flow is so natural he doesn't have to endeavor himself, he can just talk about things and it all seems to rhyme. That's skill that could top Eminem.

Christopher Wallace, better known as Biggie Smalls was a great rapper and the biggest rival of Tupac. They used to be friends but got caught up in the turf wars with the east and westcoast. Biggie Smalls came the closest to Tupac's succes and in my opinion Tupac is better but they're both extremely good. So good that they both shared the same fate.

I'm not saying Eminem is a bad rapper. He's in my top 5 and can top most rappers from today. But he's not the best. He's close though. But my top 3 would be Tupac, Biggie and Nas. I've showed you some examples of superior rappers to Eminem.

Also note that Eminem has stated Tupac is better than him.

Thanks for the debate.
