Jamal Crawford, during an interview with Shaq and Nischelle, says that Jay-Z’s effect on rap outweighs any album sales by Eminem. The 3x NBA Sixth Man of the Year believes that the effect Jay-Z has in rap music far surpasses the impact of the millions of album Eminem has sold.
Crawford altered a controversial statement that many of Eminem’s fans may not agree with. In his opinion, he believes that rap music doesn’t care much about how many album you sell. Rather, it’s about your influence in the industry and the authority you command.
Don’t forget, Pimp C turned down ‘Big Pimpin’ appearance because of Jay-Z‘s masturbation mix-up according to Roc-A-Fella A&R Kyambo “Hip-Hop” Joshua.
Joshua said, “But once he got past that, he thought Jay was saying that he was playing with his dick in the truck. So he’s like, ‘Man, I’m not getting on no song with another man talkin’ bout playing with hisself in the truck! Young Hop, you my boy, but what you tryna have me doin’, man?’ He said, ‘That’s like career suicide!
50 Cent didn’t agree with what Jamal said. He commented on the video post of the interview and wrote “Bullshit.”
