Eminem is back on everyone's radar. He delivered a highly praised freestyle during the BET Hip Hop Awards blasting President Donald Trump. And the rapper just unveiled the track-listing for his upcoming LP "Revival." Many fans are calling Eminem the best rapper alive amidst this career renaissance. But critics don't agree with the GOAT label. Many cite Tupac or Biggie as the greatest rappers of all time. While Eminem is the best-selling rapper, critics say he wouldn't be as commercially successful if not for white privilege. Is Eminem the greatest? 🎤🐐

Watch Eminem's freestyle that had everyone talking. 

Stans call him 🐐.

Stans are legit ecstatic for Em's new music. 

And just to recap, "Lose Yourself" is one of Eminem's greatest classics. The song was the lead single to his semi-autobiographical film "8 Mile." The smash topped the Billboard Hot 100, won Grammys for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Solo Performance, and won an Oscar for Best Original Song. Fans use facts like these to prove Eminem is the greatest. Not to forget, he's a lyrical genius whose rhymes are both introspective and political.

Watch the music video to "Lose Yourself" below. 

But Tupac and Biggie are regarded as the greatest of all time. Jay-Z, Nas, and Lil Wayne are considered some of the greatest rappers alive alongside Eminem. Kendrick Lamar and J Cole are revered as the rappers of their generation. 

Skeptics are just simply calling Eminem a good rapper, not the greatest.

Critics are saying that although Eminem is a talented rapper, he could not achieve this level of success without being white.
