    Grandmaster Melle Mel Responds to Racist Eminem Allegations

    Grandmaster Melle Mel, the lead rapper & lyricist for the seminal hip hop group Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five, has been in the news lately for his comments about Eminem. During an interview with Art of Dialogue, he claimed that Em was only rated as a top-five rapper because he is white.

    Melle Mel Defends Kendrick Lamar

    Kendrick Lamar is one of the most respected artists in rap and the culture at large. Known for his complex lyrical prowess, classic albums, and envelope-pushing evolution, he’s the recipient of multiple Grammy Awards, an Emmy win, and a major foray into film with Black Panther.

    Earlier this week, Melle Mel of Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five took to social media to address backlash over his recent comments about Eminem and Kendrick Lamar’s positions in Hip Hop. He called out Billboard and Vibe magazine for ranking these rappers above a number of other rappers who are weighted in by fewer fans and more established figures.

    Chuck D, who was a part of the Macklemore performance that featured Melle Mel, responded to his remarks by reminding the public that Mel is a significant force in forming the culture we live in today. He also called him the Wilt Chamberlain of Hip Hop, a reference to his dominance over the mic during the first few years of the culture’s existence.

    Chuck D Responds

    One of the most prominent figures in American hip hop, Chuck D, is in Toronto for Canadian Music Week and will give a keynote speech on June 9. He’s been involved with Public Enemy since 1985 and has been a huge influence on Toronto’s hip-hop community.

    Despite his success, Chuck D has often taken a stand against racism in the entertainment industry and the black community as a whole. He’s presented numerous lectures and is a regular commentator on television shows.

    As an influential rapper, he’s known for his lyrical ability and unique voice. He’s also an innovator, having launched online entertainment sites such as Reputation and SpitSlam Records. In addition, he’s been an outspoken advocate of MP3 technology and was the first major artist to release an album in MP3 format.

    50 Cent Responds

    Eminem has been a staple in the rap game for over 30 years and remains a true GOAT. But he hasn’t always been without controversy.

    The Detroit rapper, who was born Marshall Mathers, has engaged in a number of beef, including with pop stars and journalists. During the Super Bowl LVI halftime show, he made a public display of support for NFL player Colin Kaepernick by kneeling, showcasing his solidarity.

    However, he has also been accused of racism. In a recently released tape, the rapper allegedly sings about an unhappy experience with a black girlfriend and warns women not to date black people.

    In response to these allegations, 50 Cent has criticized Melle Mel for making them. He called Melle’s comments “racist” and told him to get the “fuck outta here.”

    The Game is another artist that has thrown his weight behind Eminem. He has penned a track called “Black Slim Shady,” which attacks everything from Em’s mother to his race.

    The Game Responds

    A widely read hip-hop magazine called The Source has unearthed old recordings from Eminem that it claims prove that the rapper is a racist. In one of the tracks, the rapper raps that he will date only white girls in the future.

    While this might be a little bit too harsh for some people, it’s worth noting that the rapper did have an incredibly unhappy relationship with a black girlfriend at the time of the recording.

    But, a decade later, it seems like he has changed his mind and is no longer willing to date black women. In fact, the rapper even acknowledged this in his recent statement about the controversy.

    It’s important to note that this particular situation is far from the only racial controversy Eminem has faced over the years. He has also been accused of homophobia and misogyny. But, for the most part, these controversies seem to be largely driven by closed-minded, racist fans.
