Eminem is on the cover of a special 25th edition of XXL, which you can actually buy at a newsstand
In the pages, he speaks about a variety of topics, including his addiction.
He also names four newer rappers who he thinks are the tops.
“At this point, a lot of the big achievements that could come in your career have happened for me already, so I don’t hyper-focus on numbers and being on charts. What I hyper-focus on is people like Kendrick Lamar, Joyner Lucas, J. Cole, and Big Sean, and watching them and how the f*ck they’re doing their sh*t. Because they’re also focused on being the best rappers.”
None of those names is a big surprise. Shady has always been a champion of Lucas and has collaborated with him multiple times. He has often sung the praises of Kendrick and Cole and always gets behind his fellow Detroit rapper Big Sean.
Do you agree with his list?
