Eminem utnämner 2Pac till den bästa låtskrivaren någonsin


“You can’t just listen to ‘Pac, you feel ‘Pac.”

 

 

Eminem anses av många som en av de mest begåvade lyricisterna någonsin. Men under sin egna radiospecial “Music To Be Quarantined By” på Shade45 avslöjade han nyligen vem han själv anser är den bästa. Nämligen Tupac Shakur. Medan han förberedde sig för att spela “If I Die Tonight”, från Pacs klassiska album “Me Against The World”, motiverade han sin utmärkelse.

 

“OK, this next song is from an artist who I feel like might be the greatest songwriter of all time. Debate what you want about MC skills and all that, because he had that too. This is one of them songs by 2Pac that, to me, he was showing you, ‘I can write heartfelt shit and I can write lyrical, crazy shit too.’

 

‘They say pussy and paper is poetry, power and pistols/Plotting on murdering muthafuckas ‘fore they get you’ — like, the play on the ‘p’ words and all that shit and how he was doing it was so crazy, mixed with the feel that 2Pac could give you, which is constantly why I feel like he was saying, ‘Can you feel me?’ because you felt ‘Pac. You can’t just listen to ‘Pac, you feel ‘Pac. If you listen to him, you gonna feel him.”

 

 

 

 

Em annonserade tretimmars-specialen förra veckan och spellistan inkluderar även låtar av bland andra Beastie Boys, MC Lyte, Mobb Deep, Nas, The Notorious B.I.G., Run-DMC och Wu-Tang Clan.
