50 Cent believes Eminem has had more impact on hip-hop than Jay-Z.

Fiddy, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, has chimed in on the greatest MC of all time debate, and, as expected, the ‘In da Club’ rapper went with his mentor.

While appearing on Shaquille O’Neal’s The Big Podcast with Shaq, NBA player Jamal Crawford discussed the Hov and Em rivalry, which he likened to choosing his favorite basketball player.

Sophie’s choice, indeed.

“That’s why my five, the dominance outweighs the number,” Crawford said to Shaq, who disagreed.

“Like, Jay-Z’s effect on hip-hop is bigger than any album sales that Eminem will have, you see what I’m saying? That’s just how it goes.”

But Jackson was quick to enter the chat, replying in the Hip Hop Wolf’s comment section: “Ha bulls**t.”

And if that wasn't savage enough, the rapper also threw in a sneezing emoji.

He must have allergies.

However, it’s no surprise who the 47-year-old would side with as Em signed the artist in 2002 to his record label, Shady.

Recently, Fiddy revealed that he is developing a series based on Slim’s semi-autobiographical film 8 Mile.

While the film was made more than 20 years ago, the ‘Intro’ rapper said he wanted to create a modern version and bring it to the small screen.

During an interview with Big Boy TV, the rapper said he’d even received the blessing from Marshall Mathers himself.

He said: "I’m gonna bring his 8 Mile to television. It's gonna be big. I’m working. I ain’t got no duds. I’m battin' a hundred, I’m battin' a hundred. I think it should be there for his legacy.

"I wanna be able to show and offer a lot more details, things that you would say in an interview or different things that you’ve already used, that you put out there, and stuff like that.

"You’ll see those things kind of surface and the temperament of the characters."

The rapper went on to compare the 8 Mile TV adaptation to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot.

The 2002 film is based on Eminem’s life and his venture into the music industry.

It was a huge hit and generated USD $241.9 million (AUD 355.6m or £200.5m) at the box office.

It also received numerous awards and accolades, even winning an Academy Award for Best Original Song for ‘Lose Yourself’.

While the film’s star Mekhi Phifer recently said no to the possibility of a sequel, perhaps a TV reboot might just work.
