50 Cent says Jay-Z Don't Have More of an Impact on Hip-Hop than Eminem


Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter and Marshall “Eminem” Mathers are two of the most commercially successful rap superstars of all time. According to Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, his mentor’s legacy is greater than Jay-Z’s.

50 Cent rose to prominence two decades ago as a musical protégé of Eminem. The G-Unit leader also has a long-standing competitive rivalry with Jay-Z that dates back to the 1990s.

So, it comes as no surprise that 50 Cent would back Eminem in a debate over Em’s cultural significance versus Jay-Z’s cultural significance. Former NBA player Jamal Crawford sparked that Slim Shady/Hov discussion.

Jay-Z and Eminem worked together on the “Renegade” track which lives on Jay’s 2001 masterpiece The Blueprint studio LP. Both emcees/moguls also teamed up for the two-city The Home & Home stadium tour in 2010.
