Today in “…was this a diss?” news, Nick Cannon seems to be on the edge of re-igniting his on-again off-again feud with Eminem.
In an interview yesterday, Cannon was questioned whether or not Eminem is listened to “in the hood.” Cannon began explaining that hip-hop boils down to capitalism, and the white women who fanatically support Eminem are who made him a marketable pop culture superstar.
“When you get a blonde-haired white boy that is actually dope, that’s like the second coming of Christ to the music industry…Because you gonna get all of the credibility, like dude you can’t deny that he’s dope. He’ll get in front of anybody, battle anybody. Then, the fact it’s like,…‘I can sell and market this … like Pepsi? And he’s crazy and entertaining too? Oh, he’s a superstar. Oh he’s Elvis on crack. As much as I loved his approach, we wasn’t rocking with him like that. One thing I did know if you heard about an Eminem concert, it was gonna be flooded with women and those are the number one consumers of the product.”
Longtime fans may remember Nick Cannon getting pulled into the Eminem-Mariah Carey feud, culminating in Cannon releasing his Eminem diss “I’ma Slick Rick” in 2010.
