Oakland native rapper Symba, who was cosigned by Dr. Dre last year by posting his freestyle on Instagram with the caption: “One of my new favorites,” has recently sat down on Revolt where he talked about Eminem.
“I respect Eminem on a level as a man but as a rapper…I feel like I could name five better rappers. The Slim Shady LP, The Marshall Mathers LP, The Eminem Show. It’s fire. It’s fire but you want my honest opinion? Yes, I’m better than Eminem.” said Symba.
“Anybody can rhyme words. What are you saying? Hey, the girl that’s yelling, rap me an Eminem verse! She got quiet.” Symba added.
At 13 years old, Symba was known for being a talented local basketball player in the Bay Area, his hometown. However, he picked up another skill around the same time.
In 2017, he signed a deal with Columbia Records, but when things didn’t work out there because of a staff overhaul, he went independent in 2018. A year later, he landed another deal with a new label, signing with Atlantic Records in 2019.
