'I ain’t playing Eminem in my car': Rapper Gucci Mane feels 'Slim Shady' should not even be in 'The King of Rap' conversation
According to the 28-year-old rapper, anyone voluntarily playing an Eminem track in 2018 is laughable
Clearly, Gucci Mane is not a fan of 'the real slim shady' and he made it very clear while appearing in an interview. The Atlanta rapper took to share how he is not really an Eminem fan and expressed his thoughts on the 'Rap God' singer.
While appearing on 'The Ricky Smiley Morning Show' last week, the host of the show Headkrack asked Gucci how he feels about Eminem being considered in 'The King of Rap' conversation. Gucci shakes his head and responded, "You gotta come up with a better name than that. I ain’t playing Eminem in my car. You play him in yours?" to which Headkrack shares he does everytime Eminem has a new release.

Gucci then asked, "You sliding around playing Eminem in your car?… You just dolo playing Eminem, just metaphors?" According to the 28-year-old rapper, anyone voluntarily playing an Eminem track in 2018 is laughable. Even though Eminem's latest album debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200, sold 434,000 album equivalents in its first week, and was certified platinum in October, Gucci is not convinced.
Gucci's 13th studio album 'Evil Genius' was released on December 7 and artists such as Migos, Lil Yachty, and 21 Savage all contributed. The album also features a previously released single 'Wake Up in the Sky' along with Bruno Mars and Kodak Black.
Gucci is not the only one who has issues with Eminem. Fans will remember how rapper Machine Gun Kelly too attempted to call out Eminem with his diss track titled 'Rap Devil'.
In September, Eminem appeared for an interview with Sway Calloway and shared, "One day, you know, you go down a f*****g wormhole on YouTube or whatever. I see 'Machine Gun Kelly Talks About Eminem's Daughter' or whatever. I’m like 'what the f**k?' I click on it… he starts doing a press run, basically, about Hailie. I’m like 'what the f**k? Yo, my man better chill."
"The reason I dissed him is actually a lot more petty than that. The reason that I dissed him is because he got on — first he said 'I’m the greatest rapper alive since my favorite rapper banned me from Shade 45' or whatever he said, right? Like I’m trying to hinder his career. I don’t give a f**k about your career. You think I actually f*****g think about you? You know how many f*****g rappers are better than you? You’re not even in the f*****g conversation," Eminem continued.
