    A lot of white rappers sell well (G Eazy, NF, Mac Miller before his death, etc) but taking that next step to superstardom is hard and requires a lot of help. You need more than a black cosign from major artists, you need hits...and a lot of white rappers have struggled with that. You also need a diverse group of white people backing you. Em had white backpackers, wiggers, casual fans, young kids, frat boys, etc all in his corner. Post Malone has all types of rock fans and casual fans supporting him. Flip side G Eazy never had all of those bases of white support, nor does NF.

    Post Malone is truly the new Em because he found a way to repackage something for white consumption. Just as Em's style of rap was around for years before he took it to the white masses, Post Malone is simply taking Future/Thug/etc melodies and adding just enough musicality to bring in the "I don't listen to rap music but I like [insert white person]" types. These are people who would listen to a Future song and call it the worst thing they've ever heard...yet think Post Malone is a genius. That's the level you gotta reach for mass success. Once you convince a bunch of white people that you're doing it better than the ******s, you've truly made it.

    NF does EM numbers for sure. He got the IHeartRadio Stimulus package. Plus he has the core fan base. Riding that mysterious, depressed, angry wave. Difference with him is, he doesn’t collaborate or feature with black artist which might hinder him for the future.

    Actually.

    G Eazy main manager was Drakes ex tour manager, which allowed for G Eazy to open up for Drake and access to a much larger playing field than the average white rapper having a inside connect.

    If albums were still selling like that he probably would. No one is selling like that now, not even Em. But I would say Post Is the closest thing we have in these days as far as sales and that “I don’t like rap but I listen to Eminem”

    Em was the first to be THAT good and back then, he was THAT good, while being co-signed by black rappers. So it was a much bigger deal than white rappers just following a Good/Platinum formula.
    I wouldn't say Future is the benchmark for that dichotomy breh

    Because theyre all trash. Difference is Feminem was the first to fool people many years ago and his music likely contains more bizarre, disturbing homosexual, incestuous lyrics in which his stans stans connect with :dame:

    Eminem was a god damn animal from
    98-01. Slim Shady era em is some of my favorite music. Still gets burn. Role Model is better then anything any of those other dudes have . Although G Eazy is nice as fukk .He's the best white rapper out now
