In the latest released bonus clip from Netflix’s Kenya Barris-directed romantic comedy movie “You People,” Ezra (played by Jonah Hill) and Mo (played by comic Sam Jay) discuss their Top 5 rappers dead or alive on their podcast called The Mo & E-Z Show.
Mo: “Alright bro, Top 5? dead or alive.”
Ezra: “1. JAY-Z, 2. Biggie, 3. 2Pac, 4. Nas, and 5. Eminem.
Mo: “That’s in order? — Eminem though?”
Ezra: “Yes, in order, that’s why I put numbers in front of every person… Why do I have to keep defending Shady? I mean, his sole purpose is to be on other people’s tracks and murder them. I mean, ‘Renegade’? ‘Dead Wrong’?”
Mo: “Dawg, he’s like, I don’t know the Larry Bird of rap. Hick from French Lick. You know what I mean? He’s not great. He’s great because he’s a white man in a Black man’s game.”
Ezra: That is so stupid. That might be the dumbest s–t you’ve ever said to me.
Billboard and Vibe magazine have recently rolled out the list of 50 Greatest Rappers Of All Time to celebrate Hip-Hop’s 50th anniversary and their top picks were Jay-Z as number one, Kendrick Lamar as number two, Nas as number three, followed by Tupac and Eminem at no. 4 and no. 5 respectively.
