Basically.....but ya'll gotta understand that outside of Hip Hop Eminem probably did have a bigger impact, people that know NOTHING about Hip Hop/Rap Music know about Em....the same can't be said about Pac....But inside of Hip Hop everyone, for the most par knows and understands Pac significance and ranking Em higher then Pac would be blasphemy.....

lyrically eminem was better, and thats a fact if you know anything about lyrics.

but as far as the impact on the hiphop music and its listeners, 2pac takes it by a long shot.

I don't know about the lyrically part, but Em does have a better flow, it's just more adaptive. Pac never really changed it up, Like In the song he did with Bone "Thug Love", Pac basically kept the same flow (as opposed to Biggie who spit Bone style), but if you compare Em songs like "Stan", "My Name Is" and "Lose Yourself", you can see how adaptive his style is. But like I said earlier also Pac's impact within hip hop is FAR more significant.

Lyrics?
Dear Mama, Keep Ya Head Up, If I Die 2Nite, Ambitionz Az A Ridah, Hit Em Up, Only God Can Judge Me, Old School, Brenda's Got A Baby, Streets Are deathrow, etc, etc> anything Eminem has done.

They both got lyrics, but there's always the ever-important subject matter...

Rolling Stone is full of sh*t - I'm pretty sure 90 percent of people with a regular type of brain knows that.

How are you gonna put Eminem simple butt in a category with 2pac?!?!? Mama, Kim, his infamous Daughter, Kim K, all knows it's biased.

Purposely overated pop-stars -- I tell you.

The boy lyrics is nothing ... atleast since his first album, and the lyrics on that is so overated that it's not funny; he had a couple nice songs that had a few good lines. But thats about it - the rest were simple and goofy.

Sure people know more about him then 2pac. sh*t, the Shady Convention come on, like, every damn month.

Let's see if the boy start hittin' channel 3.

I'm always up for a very, very good laugh, though. No matter who, or what, it is.

They think "The Beatles" are the no. 1 band to ever grace music.

they hardly ever mentioned 2pac on their mag until he dies

They are named after a ROCK AND ROLL GROUP FROM THE 80's

they gave Encore 4 whole stars and they gave "The Eminem Show" only 3.



so u really want to know or even care about the opinions of these stupid a.ss people?

They only do that type of sh*t to diss/make fun of rap music. If Eminem would of been rappin' about 'ketchup' on the entire album, they would of gave it five stars. They would of hated rock-n-roll if my people stuck with it. And yup, pure lusers they are.

How come nobody cares that the Beastie Boys are so high on there?
Maybe they could be switched with Pac to make it a little better.

Eminem has had a huge influence over the music industry, so did Pac, but Pac's was more localized to hip hop, same with NWA. As far as skill goes, I would have a hard time putting Em above Pac, but I could make a case either way.

However, I couldn't make a case for Beastie Boys >> Pac or Em in influence or in skill.
