In the clip, the Roc Nation mogul discusses the greatness of peers, Snoop Dogg and Eminem.

You can have a great voice and you can just almost say anything,” Jay says. “I think Snoop Dogg has a great voice. Like, he can say, ‘One, two, three, and to the four,’ and it’s like, ‘Oh my god.’ It just sounds good, right? It just sounds really good.” The Brooklyn MC would later praise Slim Shady. “Or you can be someone like Eminem and just have amazing cadence,” he says, speaking of his “Renegade” collaborator. “It’s percussion inside the music.”

On the latest episode of A Waste of Time with ItsTheReal, Eric and Jeff Rosenthal sit down with one of the nicest (in more ways that one) rappers of all time, Phonte. In a hilarious, insightful and jewels-filled conversation, Tigallo discusses everything from his history with Little Brother and the tragic, life-changing events that shaped his new solo album No News Is Good News to the story behind his scrapped Take Care collaboration with Drake and his memories of working and performing with a young Kanye West.

“Me, Rakaa and Ev[idence] kinda had a running joke between us about doing shows with [Kanye] and it’s like, ‘When did you get the ‘Kanye, Kanye!’? If you were opening for Kanye, the goal was: can you get through your set without the crowd yelling, ‘Kanye! Kanye! Kanye!'” he remembers. “I think Little Brother might have been one of the few that actually made it through without getting it.”

One of Eminem’s biggest critics after releasing his Revival LP was Joe Budden. During his tenure on Everyday Struggle, some viewers felt the Slaughterhouse MC was harsh in his backlash over the album’s mainstream sound. 50 Cent and D-12’s Bizarre fired back at Budden on social media, and Eminem himself would clap back at Joe on his “Chloraseptic” remix. In a recent promo run to promote PRhyme 2, Royce Da 5’9″ sat down with Elliott Wilson and Brian “B.Dot” Miller on the Rap Radar podcast to speak on Joe’s comments about Slim Shady.

There is such thing as going past the realm of what your opinion is and making it sound like you’re trying to sway people’s judgement,” says Royce, in a clip released online. After hearing Royce’s thoughts, Joe decided to respond on this week’s episode of The Joe Budden Podcast. Watch both clips below.
