Eminem is enjoying a bit of a resurgence, and Stans are celebrating the 18th anniversary of his masterful album "The Marshall Mathers LP." Many fans have called Eminem the best rapper alive. But critics don't agree with the GOAT label. Many cite Tupac or Biggie as the greatest rapper of all time. While Eminem is the best-selling rapper, some music critics say he wouldn't be as commercially successful if not for white privilege. Is Eminem the greatest? 🎤🐐

Just to recap, "Lose Yourself" is one of Eminem's greatest classics. The song was the lead single to his semi-autobiographical film "8 Mile." The smash topped the Billboard Hot 100, won Grammys for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Solo Performance, and won an Oscar for Best Original Song. Fans use facts like these to prove Eminem is the greatest. Not to forget, he's a lyrical genius whose rhymes are both introspective and political.

Watch the music video for "Lose Yourself" below. 

And plenty of Stans call "The Marshall Mathers LP" one of the greatest albums ever!

But Tupac and Biggie are regarded as the greatest of all time. Jay-Z, Nas, and Lil Wayne are considered some of the greatest rappers alive alongside Eminem. Kendrick Lamar and J Cole are revered as the rappers of their generation. 

Skeptics are just simply calling Eminem a good rapper, not the greatest.

Critics are saying that although Eminem is a talented rapper, he could not achieve this level of success without being white.
