Benzino remembers blocking Eminem’s 5-mic rating on The Source!!

Benzino is still talking about his longstanding conflict with Eminem.

In a recent interview, he opened up about the time he vetoed the rapper’s award of a 5-mic rating for his debut album.

“I was at the top of my damn food chain. Even [Russell Simmons]lyor [Cohen]all those n-ggas, Steve [Stoute] and everyone had to answer to someone. I was at the helm of a nearly $75 million company when N-Ggas wasn’t making that much money. I got the big money first and I was the best,” he explained.

He continued, “When the Eminem thing came through The Source, now it’s getting disrespectful. So how the fuck am I supposed to have this nigga in my magazine? Would you? You won’t put anyone in your magazine who gives five mics to that n-gga after that n-gga was disrespectful. You wouldn’t do it, man. Nobody would do it.”

The magazine gave the rapper four microphones as a gift.
