Although a boisterous personality bleeds through his music, Eminem is actually a very reclusive artist. In fact, he's so quiet that he doesn't even tweet unless it's to promote one of his business partnerships or maybe shine light on a feature verse.
So when Em stepped out his comfort zone to tweet a cautionary message, the internet took a rare pause before trying to figure out who ruffled his feathers.
"Lord Jamar—you a legendary rapper. You're a part of a legendary rap group. It's like you're going in there sitting on (DJ Vlad's) couch, sitting in this man's chair, and you running up all these views because you have all this controversial shit to say about one f**kin' person and he walks away with the check and you walk away craving attention," Royce said. This prompted Jamar to respond by listing out his pedigree as a rapper.
"The reason why he would call me a ‘legend’ and my group ‘legendary’ is because when Brand Nubian came out, our debut album received five mics in The Source," Jamar responded in an Instagram post of his own. "A lot of people got knowledge of self through fuckin’ with our music. That’s what makes Brand Nubian so legendary. Why dude would even start out his whole rant about that and say that so thank you and respect for acknowledging what I’ve done in this game as a legend. Thank you. I appreciate that."
This exchange has fans thinking that Eminem is ready to test Lord Jamar's status as a legendary rapper. And as the anniversary of Kamikaze approaches, some people in the audience are anxious to see who will strike first.
