Eminem is one of the best-selling musicians of all time, with over 220 million records sold worldwide. Busta Rhymes, on the other hand, has 12 Grammy nominations for his work, making him one of the most-nominated artists without a win. E40 recently stated that Busta Rhymes would defeat Eminem in Verzuz Battle. That is quite a hot take indeed.
It is a new day, and another contribution to the Eminem Verzuz debate is going down. Now, E-40, the West Coast OG, takes a stance and explains why he believes Busta Rhymes is not only a viable opponent but also a potential victor in the battle against Marshall.
E-40 sat down with Jalen and Jacoby to discuss the situation. The Californian spitter outlined his position from beneath a row of RIAA certificates.
“I love Eminem. I love this guy, too, to the fullest. Busta Rhymes would eat Eminem in a Verzuz battle. I really believe that. Busta Rhymes goes crazy. Because, now, it’s turned into a performance type of situation. Busta Rhymes is animated, he’s got gas, he raps fast, all that.”
“He do all that stuff that Eminem do. And Busta Rhymes got up-tempo slaps that get the party going. Anytime you got up-tempo slaps, you’re gonna win. You, guys, gotta agree with me. You know it’s the truth. Eminem is so legendary. Definitely, can’t take it away from him.”
“Great hits, great style. He’s legendary, he’s an icon. But Busta Rhymes’ got it what it takes to bring it to the surface when people say, ‘Damn, I didn’t even know he had all these hits.’ Them he gotta sing the stuff he did with Mariah [Carey] and the stuff he did with Craig Mack.”
“He got his own slaps, and he’s animated. And don’t even let him bring a spliff up there. Let’s get Swizz Beatz on the phone and bring him in! Him and Timbaland have to make this happen.”
E40 has finally revealed his perspective on the Versuz battle. The game has begun; let’s see how Eminem and Busta react to his viewpoint. Odds are if Em steps on that stage it won’t be against anyone but Jay-Z, but who knows what can happen if enough money is thrown around?
