I don't care who you are. Eminem will ruin your career. Period. "Nail In The Coffin" was the best diss track of all time. If you mess with this man, your career is over. There will never be another battle rapper like Eminem, and there will never be another Eminem.

The slim shady is the best. It takes real skills to be a white rapper.

Are you kidding me a diamond artist who got his start battling and had many beefs in the game isn't number 1?

Well deserved

2 Dizaster

This Persian lyrical genius could literally take off any rappers head off clean if he's in the mood. Em is only better because he could ride a beat. But wait a minute, isn't this supposed to be a battle rap list? Dizaster should be #1 Period.

Diz literally made Canibus bust out a notepad to finish off that battle! I personally am an underground emcee and battled a lot a decade ago and to get someone with the Caliber as a once known greatest battle lyricist to completely go against all battle ethics and pull out a notepad and literally read garbage rhymes is truly nasty... PERIOD!

Despite all this his first language was arabic and he bust all rappers and humped them by his camel

He's arabic retard not persian
