John Salley responds Dr. Umar’s comments about Eminem




NBA legend, John Salley, who was the first player in NBA history to win championships with three franchises as well as the first player in the NBA to win a championship in three different decades, has recently sat down with DJ VLAD, where the two talked about Dr. Umar Johnson saying Eminem can’t be one of the greatest rappers of all time because he’s white.

“I love Eminem. I disagree with Umar about the color, period. It’s certain things that I understand why he says what he says, I’m a fan of Dr. Umar on a lot of things. But Eminem should be in the conversation as one of the greatest rappers of all time. It’s the way he puts things together…But, ‘in conversation’ because I’m still Kool G Rap. [Laughs]. Kool G Rap and DJ Polo…” said John Salley.

Then he continued: “I love Kool G Rap. I love Chino XL but when it comes to rhyming, just like Kobe and his focus on just being on basketball, you can tell that’s how Eminem is. Cause he still can tell you other people’s rhymes. To this day, he can reference other people’s thymes. Great rapper that did well, they had pulled from everywhere.”
