D12’s Swifty McVay taunts Melle Mel to diss Eminem




Swifty McVay of D12 is a recent rapper to weigh in on Melle Mel’s statement about the reason of Eminem being in the top 5 rappers of all time is because he is white.

In a recent interview with The Art Of Dialogue, Melle Mel of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five shared his opinion about Eminem being in the Top 5 rappers of all time list by Billboard and Vibe magazines: “Obviously, he’s a capable rapper. If we talk about sales and he sold more than everybody, okay, if we talk about rhyme style, okay, he got a rhyme style. But he is white! He is white! If Eminem was just another ni–a like the rest of us, would he be top 5 on that list when a ni–a can rhyme just as good as him is 35?! They had records and all that.”

50 Cent, Fat Joe, Papoose, Kxng Crooked, Kevin Gates, O’shea Jackson and Page Kennedy have all come together to defend Eminem against Melle Mel’s comments. To respond the backlash, Melle Mel recorded 8 minutes video from the guy where he defends his statement:

Melle Mel recorded a video from the gym where he says: “I said, Eminem is only number five on the list because he was white. I guess that started the uproar. Everybody is just so angry that I would say that. I’ve been branded a racist but that’s impossible, I’ve been playing with all the different kind of people in my life. Eminem made record, I guess it is called “White America,” where he said that he would be less popular if he was not white. So now we basically said the same thing. This is what Eminem says (plays White America where Eminem raps “Let’s do the math, if I was black, I woulda sold half I ain’t have to graduate from Lincoln High School to know that”) He also has another record “Till I Collapse” where he named five or six individuals that he put himself behind these five or six individuals. And I have said that he would not be in the top 5 other than the fact that he was white. He said that.”

Back in 2021, in an interview with VLAD TV, Melle Mel said he would easily beat Eminem in a rap battle: “I would easily beat Eminem in a battle. It would be the easiest thing I ever did. Easy. Technically he is a great rapper but I’m the greatest. I know how to write it. When I put it down it’s gonna stay down. It would be the easiest thing that I ever did. And when people bring that up, just say ‘you can’t beat Eminem’. I’ve been doing this all my life. I don’t even write how I used to write but still, easy. Rap is my destiny. Everybody that’s out there rapping, they all trying to do something that I did 40 years ago.”

Now Swifty McVay is ironically asking the hip-hop pioneer to actually go in a rap battle with Eminem and prove his point. “You got an opinion OG and you are an architect of this, but if you so competitive do a diss track for the culture and lets see how that works out for you [laughing emjis]. Just saying.” – McVay commented under one of the Instagram posts.
