G-Eazy on Eminem’s “The Storm” Freestyle: “There’s a reason why he’s the greatest”

Remy Gelenidze

In a new interview with Hot 97, Bay Area G-Eazy shared his thoughts on the BET freestyle, revealing that he was more or less in awe of the performance:

“The cypher was Incredible, incredible. I was grateful. That is all I you can say is thank you for like being the biggest voice and saying it so loud, and saying it so accurately, and so forcefully, passionately, and genuinely. It was incredible from every angle. He hit the topics right on the head, standing with Kap, saying that loud, being him, having his platform, his voice, and doing that was incredible. And he snapped — that was dumb fire. There is a reason why he is the greatest.”

Then he went on to applaud the density of the wordplay in the freestyle: “That is the thing about a really great lyricist and why I love hip-hop. There is layers of the onion, of the bars. I will still be catching bars that I did not even fully peep for years of listening to songs. That is why we love it so much. You can not do nothing but love greatness… highest respect to Em. Period.”
