A debate of who’s the greatest rapper in this current musical climate has surfaced yet again. During an early segment of HOT 97’s “Ebro In The Morning” show (April 14), radio host Peter Rosenberg said that Kendrick Lamar currently holds the G.O.A.T. title, adding, “There is not a person who can rap on planet Earth better than Kendrick Lamar.”
The longtime rap music-head continued to promote his case for the Compton native’s place among elite lyricists like Nas, Big Pun and Jay Z. “When it comes to the business and game of rapping, no one has ever done it better than Kendrick Lamar,” Rosenberg passionately says.
Following the 37-year-old’s comments, Twitter users swiftly reacted to share their opinions on the matter, even finding a way to compare Lamar’s career to that of award-winning artist Eminem.
If you think kendrick Lamar is a better rapper then Eminem… slim shady… Marshall Mathers… B rabbit…. Then you’re dumb and fuck you

If you think Kendrick Lamar is better than Eminem.. you were probably born in 2000 and worried if you will have a prom date this year ..

What are your thoughts? Is it time to make room for K. Dot on the Mount Rushmore of hip-hop? Is the debate between him and Eminem valid?
