Melle Mel was not happy when Eminem was named by the fifth-best rapper of all time by Billboard.
“If Eminem was just another n*gga like all the rest of us, would he be top five on that list, when a n*gga that can rhyme just as good as him is 35,” Melle said. “If he was a Black rapper, he wouldn’t even make the list, probably.”
“Shoutout to Furious Five and Grandmaster Flash, but boy/ There’s someone who really is furious/ Stay out his path, his wrath avoid/ I’ll be the last to toy with a juice head whose brain is half destroyed, like a meteor hit it/ Now with Melle Mel, he lost his ass to ‘roids.
Melle Mell plans to keep the war on wax. He previewed his response to Eminem’s diss.
“No apologies, this ain’t a disclaimer/ I’m the king of legend, the first hall of famer/ Makin’ diss tracks, I know you with that/ Now everybody get ready for the kickback,” he raps. “Why you hurt?”
Is Shady hurt?
