Glasses Malone says Eminem sells more because he’s white but he’s also top 10 most talented MCs




Los Angeles hip-hop artist, Glasses Malone has recently sat down on NO VULTURES for an interview where he talked about white privilege in hip-hop.

“First off, Eminem is unbelievably talented, let’s start there. He’s not dope because he’s white. He’s just dope! Now, is he selling better because he’s white? Sure, white people relate to him and see themselves. That’s easy sale. Marketing 101. Show me, me, that look like this, I’ll buy.” – said Glasses Malone.

Then he continued: “I think Eminem is, don’t get me wrong, is top 10 talented, at worst. He’s as talented as any MC can be. This ni–a is unbelievable. But of course he’s gonna sell more units because people can market easier when you can see yourself in them. I mean, he’s the American guy.”

“Hip-Hop is all about street Urban culture. Kanye West’s first album was College Dropout. The average ni–a at his age was not going to college. There are some ni–as that’s from the ghetto that went to college but I don’t know about the Cuz’s experience but it ain’t really important. I love Ye s–t so… And I love a Drake s–t. But Drake s–t was just obvious. The point I’m saying is, Eminem grew up in the ghetto somewhere and some trailer park.” Glasses Malone added.

Eminem has previously addressed white privilege in many occasions, including in one of his hit songs, “White America,in which he raps: “Look at my sales / Let’s do the math: If I was Black, I would’ve sold half / I ain’t have to graduate from Lincoln High School to know that / But I could rap, so f–k school, I’m too cool to go back / Give me the mic, Show me where the f–kin’ studio’s at / When I was underground, no one gave a f–k I was White…
