As per 50 Cent, Eminem has had a greater influence on hip hop than Jay-Z.
The Big Podcast, Shaquille O'Neal's new podcast, was published on January 12 and featured an interview with former NBA player Jamal Crawford. Crawford discussed his top five NBA players, drawing parallels to musicians like Jay-Z and Eminem.
Crawford concludes at the 43:15 minute, "My five, the dominance outweighs the number. You can't change the game and say this guy has more points than me, he's better." It's beyond that. Jay-Z's impact on hip-hop is greater than any album sales Eminem will have. That's just how it's done."
50 Cent learned about the debate on Sunday (January 22) via an Instagram blog and decided to include his two cents.
"Ha bullshit," and a sneezing emoji, completed his message.
50 Cent has been an integral part of Team Eminem since the early 2000s, when he was signed by Shady. Fif announced earlier this month that he is developing an 8 Mile television series.
50 Cent said of the program, which would be based on Eminem's 2002 film of the same name. "It's important to me that they understand it. Because America's listening to Black music, right?"
50 has previously defended Eminem's reputation, so this isn't the first time he's defended Hov. When it was announced in April that Eminem would not be participating in the Jigga Super Bowl halftime performance in 2022, he took to Twitter to criticize Jay-Z.
