Skilla Baby Says Eminem Isn’t Detroit’s Best Rapper

As a Detroit native himself, Skilla Baby has his thoughts on the best rappers from the city.

The musician joined the This Is Keke Palmer podcast as a guest recently, where he disagreed with the notion that Eminem is the best rapper from Detroit. “I don’t know because if you think number-wise Eminem is the best Detroit rapper,” Skilla explained. “But the gag is nobody would say that in Detroit.”

Palmer replied in surprise, “Now that’s tea, boo,” before asking him who his “top rappers” are.

“I don’t know because everybody had their turn being Detroit’s favorite rapper,” he responded. “Sada Baby had his turn, Tee Grizzley had a turn, [42] Dugg had a turn, Babyface Ray had a turn. Veeze is one of Detroit’s best rappers now. Baby Smoove, Big Kizz – a lot of artists had their turn. Rocaine… Everybody had their turn being the best in the city, but what we lack is consistency. Nobody’s consistently been Detroit’s best rapper.”

He concluded, “Nobody in Detroit plays Eminem right now,” before adding, “I was an Eminem fan as a kid. I’m a fan of Eminem but do we consider him our best rapper? I don’t think Detroit does.”

Eminem is about to release his 12th studio album, The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce), on July 12. The album is led by single “Houdini,” which earned him his highest-charting Hot 100 hit of the decade, as the track debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.
