TK Kirkland is an American entertainer who has been in the industry for over a decade. He has had success in both film and television. TK is well-known for his work in acting, stand-up comedy, and writing. He has recently sat down for an interview with The Art Of Dialogue where he shared his thoughts on Billboard and Vibe magazines list of top 50 greatest rappers of all time and how Eminem and Jay-Z fit in the list.
“[Top 5] That’s a hot list bro. Listen, I toured with Jay-Z. I toured with Tupac. I toured with 50 Cent and Eminem. You can take all the rappers combined on this planet and put them in the Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan, they will never outsell Eminem. When he was at the top of his prime.” said TK Kirkland.
Then he continues: “When I saw Eminem performing in Detroit at the Ford Field in Michigan, he sold out three nights straight. Jay-Z could never do that. Tupac could never do that. Those guys on the list could never do that. And these are facts. Eminem sold out Ford Field by himself alone. It’s insane. But far as swag. Far as when you listen to person’s music what they do for you, hands down, Jay-Z.”
From there TK Kirkland continues talking about Nas and Kendrick Lamar. You can watch the entire thing below:
