Eminem praises Tupac on his radio show
Eminem is remembering the late rapper on his Shade45 SiriusXM Channel, and praising Tupac Shakur for his skill set on the mic.
Tupac's 1995 album Me Against The World has some major hits, including "If I Die Tonight", which Eminem praised before playing it on the Music To Be Quarantined By radio show.
Eminem said of the song, “Debate what you want about MC skills and all that because he had that, too. This is one of them songs by Tupac that, to me, was like, he was showing you I can write heartfelt s--t and I can write lyrical, crazy s--t, too"
He then went on to rap some of the lyrics saying, “They say p--y and papers, poetry, power and pistols/Plottin’ on murderin’ muthaf--kas ’fore they get you.”
“The play on the p-words and all that s--t and like, how he was doing it was so crazy mixed with the feel that Tupac could give you, which is constantly why I feel like he was always saying, ‘Can ya feel me?’ because you felt ’Pac," he continued.
"You can’t just listen to ’Pac. You feel ’Pac. If you listen to him, you’re gonna feel him.”
