50 Cent Hits Back at Melle Mel for Claiming Eminems Success Only Comes From His Skin Color

The ‘Power’ co-creator calls out the Bronx rapper for his comments about Em’s No. 5 placement in Billboard and Vibe’s Top 50 Greatest Rappers of All-Time list.

AceShowbiz50 Cent has defended Eminem. The “In Da Club” hitmaker has hit back at Melle Mel after he declared that Em is only considered to be a top five rapper because of his skin color.

The “Power” co-creator made use of his Instagram page on Sunday, March 5 to slam Melle for his critical remarks about Eminem’s No. 5 placement in Billboard and Vibe’s Top 50 Greatest Rappers of All-Time list. In the Sunday’s post, Fif wrote, “There was more money selling dope than being in Hip Hop when Melly Mel was popping, the culture has grown so much.”

“I am not sure if it would be what it is today with out artist like Eminem. S**t I am not sure I would be who I am with out him but you know it is competitive so n***as gonna hate,” Fiddy continued, “LOL f**k outta here ! We sucker free.” Unfortunately, the post has since been deleted.

What 50 is referring to Melle Mel’s interview with YouTube channel The Art of Dialogue where he downplayed Eminem’s status in the rap game and his No. 5 ranking on Billboard and Vibe’s list, in particular.

“Obviously, he’s a capable rapper,” Melle Mel acknowledged. “If you talking about sales, he sold more than everybody. If you talking about rhyme styles, okay, he got rhyme style. But he’s white.”

Melle Mel went on adding, “So, if Eminem was just another n***a like all the rest of us, would he be top five on that list where a n***a that can rhyme just as good as him is [No.] 35? That had records and all that. He’s 35.”

“And anybody could be as mad. They could feel how they wanna feel,” Melle Mel further elaborated. “If you don’t think that race plays a part in the equation of how great he is – I heard one of the dudes that’s down with him, Royce Da 6’9 or one of those – I heard he’s just as good as Eminem. Why he ain’t as big as Eminem? Because he’s black!” The Bronx rapper then reiterated, “Ain’t none of that s**t hard to figure out. Eminem gets a top spot because he’s white.”
