Eminem / Yelawolf / Royce 5'9" / NF

Royce 5’9″ has recently done a question and answer session for his fans with his wife on Instagram where he addressed his past beef with Yelawolf, shared his opinion on Eminem’s “Doomsday Pt. 2” song, commented about NF, gave high praise to J. Cole and teases another Bad Meets Evil project.

What do you think about NF?
Is that a guy from, is he like a Christian rapper? Rap real good, Christian rap? If so, yeah, I like him. He cool.

Who is the best rapper right now?
Hm, this is a good question. I don’t know. Probably Nasaan. I’m always afraid to give my opinion because…Yo, man, I was on Joe Budden Podcast and he asked me how I felt about the state of things. He asked me about my opinion how I felt about it and a friend of mine, another rapper who you all know but I’m not gonna say his name, texted me like two paragraphs message. How did you receive this? He was challenging me or something? Why do everybody think that I’m like when I break something down, the lyrics are the only thing that matter to me. Cause he was explaining to me the importance of melody and how melody is key and it ain’t all about the lyrics. I was thinking to myself, ‘yo, what the f–k do that gotta do what I said?’ I said that J. Cole seemed like the only guy I heard in a minute that’s like being real competitive and trying to be the best. I was not just talking about his lyrics. My criteria is how many boxes he checks. I don’t like when artist feel like they have to choose one or another. Biggie could do everything, tell stories, he made complete bodies of work, super lyrical, checked all the boxes, that’s my criteria.

How was “Doomsday Pt. 2”? 
Yo, I wish I could f–king…I wish I had a device that I can put on people’s heads and make them forget about that whole f–king scenario. I’m really ready for that to go away. Benzino basically went on the entire press run, putting out records and guess whose name got worked up in the mix out of nowhere? Me!

Are you and Yelawolf okay?
Yeah, we are. One thing about me is I’m not about to just sit around and just be mad at people. It’s going to get addressed and we gonna come to some sort of a solution or we gonna move on. I’m not gonna sit around and just harbor feelings about people. He didn’t do anything that was surprising to me. So it’s just another thing. But I’m not tripping about him or anybody else.

What are your thoughts on Em’s verse on Doomsday? 
Why? Why do you wanna know what I think? Because all I’mma do is say my opinion and the next thing you do you all like ‘oh, he like everything he do, that’s his boss. He got to get on here and defend him all the time. Why you talking for him?!’ but you can’t name one time I talk for him. Jesus Christ! They just stick me with all of that f–king worst titles. ‘Let that white boy talk for himself, man! What you talking for?!’ Like, bro, really?

Why have not you been on BMF? 
That’s a good question. You should ask 50 Cent that. Next time you see 50, matter of fact, spam him and be like ‘yo man, why you ain’t got Nickel on BMF? He sold more dope than all of them n-ggas.’

Is there another collab with Em happening?
“Man, we gon’ do whole Benzino diss EP and square this away once for all. The winner gets crowned with Global Lyrical Supremacy Forever. Whoever makes the best diss records. I’mma do PRhyme 3 and diss everybody too.” said Royce 5’9″. From there, Royce’s wife continues: “Go on Marshall’s and make sure you say we need BME 3. The fans, don’t think you don’t matter. Cause I want to hear BME 3.” Royce 5’9″ added: “I told you we going to do it.”
