Joyner Lucas is confident in naming his "favorite rapper."
Recently, Eminem's Kamikaze was certified platinum, proving that not even the digital age can stifle his momentum. And while Em has no shortage of platinum plaques decorating his walls, for Joyner Lucas, the milestone is a new experience. The "I Love" rapper recently tweeted out his gratitude for Marshall Mathers, after landing his first ever platinum plaque for their work on "Lucky You."
"Who would of knew My first platinum plaque would ironically come from my favorite rappers album?" writes Joyner, via Twitter. "
@Eminem thank u." With "Lucky You" in the bag, let's see if their upcoming collaboration can follow suit; Joyner has already teased an Em feature on ADHD, which is said to follow in the footsteps of "Stan."
When it comes to GOAT discourse, Eminem's name is not always respected accordingly; some feel compelled to give him his props reluctantly neglecting to note his various contributions to the game. We've seen Em vent his frustrations on songs like "Fall," so its good to see new generation voices like Joyner Lucas put some respect on the legend's name.
