No one in the game can deny Joyner Lucas's mastery of lyricism, he's one of the few new school rappers than can hang with the best of them. Even though he's of the New School of rap he hasn't cease to amaze fans and foes alike.
Over the weekend he got perhaps one of the biggest cosigns he could have ever hoped for, an acknowledgement from Eminem as one of the Best Rappers of All Time.
"For me, in no particular order... Toss up between wayne, pac, royce, jay, redman, treach, g. rap, biggie, & king crook," wrote Em on Twitter before expanding. "Plus redman, LL, nas, joyner, kendrick, cole, andre, rakim, kane..."
After a minute the review got back to Joyner Lucas who suffice to say was overwhelmed and elated. "If you played ball and studied Michael Jordan as the greatest, and then Michael Jordan name drops you as one of the greatest ball players of all time. That’s how this feels to me," he said.
There have been multiple times where Joyner Lucas and Eminem have collaborated, and Em has definitely seen Lucas at his best - clearly he recognized something in him, and with the drop of ADHD we got to see even more of his talent. Hopefully we'll get to see even more soon.
