Eminem, Marshall Mathers, Slim Shady, whatever you call him, is widely considered one of the best to ever touch a mic.

Mathers sent fans into a frenzy when he updated his best rappers of all-time list.

A lot of artists prefer not to dive into the greatest of all time (GOAT) debate in order to keep everyone in their field chummy.

But in his 2002 track, 'Til I Collapse, Eminem weighed up on who he thought was at the top of his genre.

"I got a list, here's the order of my list that it's in / It goes: Reggie, Jay-Z, 2Pac and Biggie, André from OutKast, Jada, Kurupt, Nas, and then me,” The record-breaking rapper said in the song.

Considering Eminem – real name Marshall Bruce Mathers III – is quite literally the number one selling rap artist in history, people are always interested to know who he respects most in the industry.

So in 2022, when YouTuber No Life Shaq asked on X who the greatest rapper of all time is, fans were stunned when Eminem replied.

The 50-year-old musician artist wrote: "For me, in no particular order... Toss up between wayne, pac, royce, jay, redman, treach, g. rap, biggie & king crook...."

In a separate tweet, he said: "Plus redman, LL, nas, joyner, kendrick, cole, andre, rakim, kane..."

For the uninitiated, that's Lil Wayne, 2Pac, Royce Da 5'9", Jay-Z, Redman, Treach, Kool G Rap, Biggie and Kxng Crooked in the first post.

The second mentions LL Cool J, Nas, Joyner Lucas, Kendrick Lamar, J Cole, Andre 3000, Rakim and Big Daddy Kane.

Hundreds of people commented on Em's post, with one pointing out: "You gotta include yo self in there!"

"The guy didn't even include himself on the conversation," added another. "You the [goat emoji] @Eminem we don't need conversation for that.

"Hope you put out more music. You are keeping the Unique Hiphop culture alive. Godbless."

A third joked about the rapper's various personas, writing: "For me, in no particular order.. toss up between @Eminem, Marshall, b rabbit, slim shady or that white guy from d12."

Many of the comments were from people excited for No Life Shaq – it's not everyday one of the most well-known rappers on the planet replies to your post.

"I would lose my s**t if he replied to me," said one. "This is so cool. Plus he mentions Treach! People always forget about NBN!"

A second said: "Damn this is amazing. You definitely deserve it brother. If Em ever tweeted at me I’d probably lose my f***ing mind."
