Benzino and Eminem‘s 20-year-long beef could finally be ending with one last duel — and the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” alum thinks he can win with ease, vowing he’s in his rhyme prime!!!TMZ Hip Hop recently chopped it up with Benzino as he soaked up some Miami rays, and first things first … we got his beef expertise on Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole‘s brief battle, and the shocking apology that followed!!!


Like many rap pundits, Benzino said Cole’s apology was bad for battling, but great for showing future artists that hip hop doesn’t have to be so macho — especially given the long history of murdered rappers.His history with Em is a little more checkered, but we got him to explain why they’re still nipping at one another’s heels after decades. Remember, they kicked off this year trading diss tracks!!!


It feels like a classic case of admiration neither side is willing to admit … Benzino tells us he shot his “Rap Elvis” video in Detroit and Em’s Mom’s Spaghetti restaurant, but it was all in good sport.

Eminem Through The Years


Benzino says his Em issues stem from the promotional and marketing boosts he received for being white during a time Black artists had to scrap for recognition — and even admitted he blocked Em’s 2004 album “Encore” from getting rated during his tenure at “The Source” magazine.They were at war, so no freebies!!!


Cooler heads have since replaced hot-headed ones and Benzino tells us he’s willing to shake hands when it’s all over — but he just needs Em to accept the challenge.

Chances of that happening are likely slimmer than shady, but Benzino says he’s just territorial when it comes to hip hop culture. He adamantly swears he’s not the racist Em’s Stans accuse him of being.


The Boston rap vet has other things going outside of staring at his Eminem pin cushion — he just joined his pals N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN as “Drink Champs’” first-ever guest host where they interviewed MC Eiht.A podcast career might be the obvious route, but Benzino’s still keeping his schedule flexible should Em come knocking again!!!
