We have Elvis Presley as the "King of Rock" and Michael Jackson as the "King of Pop." With those labels how could anyone add up? Well now we may have the "King of Rap."

ru joking now i feel M he is on it 4sho but just bcs he is white he is not getting the king of rap title sorry he hasn't outsold JZ he is def not 2Pac or Biggie and the group he produced only makes hits when he appears on them w/o him they just went away and 50 is a bum rapper not to mention NAS Scarface Cube and many others in the line before M even though he can rip most any MC in a battle he has a long walk down to calvary if he wants that crown b/c it isn't outta reach but i def don't see him as the KING OF RAP jstNcase u don't know has nothing to do with his being white just the facts but he can be the Mid-West King though as a consolation prize if Kanyeezy doesn't mind

he wants respect but he doesn't want this kind of presure. both m.j. and elvis had a hard time handling the presure an it may have made them crack. i don't wanna put that on him. and yes he is good but many great ones came before him too , like 2 pac. there is no one king. and yes the race issue will come up ( read above comment,maybe it already has) a white king of rap, well it's just case he's white. u know stuff like that is what plenty of people will be saying. he's one of the greatest no matter what the color but there is no one greatest.

Mariah should've left it alone. Maybe she did it for record sales and publicity. Maybe Eminem is in on it and it's a bunch of hype to sell records on both ends.

Tupac is the King of Rap. Untouchable, imo.

i dont think em is the king of rap. i think pac is and in 2nd is big. but em is truly 3rd. em got another style than all these other rappers. he dont talk bout the same thing jay and wayne and the other rappers talk about such as money,hos,etc. jayz never sold 1.5 mill n a week. em in Guinness for having the fastest selling album of all time. practically thats out selling. dont matter how many albums u got, its if u still got more than the other. and em got it.

Eminem has to earn this handle to his name first! He is far from being so loved all over the world like Michael and Elvis were and still are.
