Eminem vs Cage

How many whack and average artists have accused Eminem to have copied their style or rhymes? Well, if Eminem was actually inspired by some of you and took some of your whack or average work to make it look brilliant, that makes him appear much more than a genius in the public�s eyes.

Underground rapper Cage from New York belongs to those emcees who claim that Eminem copied their rhymes and their style.
Their beef goes back to the release of the Slim Shady EP in 1998. At this time, Cage accused Eminem to copy his rhymes and his style, which has been denied by Eminem. Cage gets dissed in the song �Role Model� from the Slim Shady LP, where Eminem says: �Bought Cage�s tape, opened it and dubbed over it.�
Eminem also disses Cage in a freestyle called �Drastic Measures�:

�Are you afraid of a blade made of a razor wit AIDS
Blood dripping from it
Ripping your stomach up from the waist up
You talk a lot of junk, but you was never ill though
I’m strong enough to beat you to death with a feather pillow
Tipped over some cows, just for a joke and a laugh
Jumped up choked a giraffe
Snapped its neck and broke it in half
Waging wars
Went on stage and sprayed Cage wit Agent Orange
And wiped my ass wit his page in Source
The demon is here, i’m steaming this year
I rip Mystikal’s voice box out, and scream in his ear
It’s not a gimmick trick, it’s an image I live it
Give a damn? I don’t know what a damn is to give it
Man I don’t think this guy is well, I’m high as hell
I beat you with a live cat while I’m swinging him by his tail
I’ll freakin’, I’ll freakin’
Lay your nuts on the dresser, just your nut sack by itself
And bang them stuffs wit a spiked bat
Cut your neck off, and glue your head right back, and leave you like that
You just triggered the prick who mixed liquor
Who’s itching to leave you disfigured
And stiffer than Chris “Stiffer” Reeves
I was teething with strep throat when your mother was breast feeding
And gave her the flesh eating disease
I’m iller than taking a hammer and beating your knees
And walking through South Central L.A. bleeding in jeans
Flash you back to being shot and repeating the scene
On how you just got smoked
And if you do live
You’ll be too scared to tell it, like a Biggie and Pac joke
Did my best to edit in the curses
In these verses
When it dispurses…�

Despite the fact both emcees despise each other, Eminem and Cage have something in common: both are abused children. The article �Rage In The Cage� will give you further information about the underground emcee:


Cage calls Eminem�s rhymes “Tired rhyme styles from Detroit, Michigan”.
Cage justifies his retaliation against Eminem this way: “It started because he is a bitch ass nigga! Right now it stands with me kicking in his fucking face, real horrorshow, I ain�t lettin� all the shit he said slide.”

Here are some lines written by Cage that are directly aimed at Marshall and at his alter egos:

I heard some blonde bitch walking through New York looking for Cage, I’ll stab you in the face, ten times in the same place. Lace your little infant ’til you thinking different, When in the same building on the street lift you off your feet. The illest four letter word in the world, supporter, Rhyme slaughter, the listener to death save the gun for the Blonde Ambition, fell off the Christian wagon. Your systems saggin biting my shit and I’m laughing, I can freak simple shit and sell records but I don’t. I write the illest shit that cause fans to enter bitin’ zones, Keep your guards by your guard you showing cards on the low. See a man gotta deal, now y’all look just like ‘Cro (Necro), all you schizophrenics need help with reality. Kill your two little personalities, shark getting snuck a salary, Observe gravity pullin ya in to earth gradually. You’ll see you need a style I create to try and battle me…�

Cage, who despises Slim Shady calls Eminem�s alter ego �Censored Lady�. He also created a Dr Dre diss called �Still Cage� which is supposed to be a parody of �Still Dre�.

Since the beginning of his career, Eminem has caused a lot of envy and jealousy in the world of hip hop. Because he is incredibly gifted for rap and because he handles words like nobody, many emcees would like to be rap like him.
Why not try to improve your style and work a lot harder instead of picking on the best MC?

    Cage Kennylz is just real. Em… love him, but seriously, is it necessary to promote your wack ass D12 click? or drop a horrifically poppy 1st single everytime you drop an album?

    Cage appeals to you if you’re looking for more than just what’s out there in contemporary hiphop. That’s why he’s part of Def Jux. The most innovative indie hiphop label around. Have you even heard the new EL-P album?!?!?!

    I am not white and I honestly don’t enjoy horror core, or anything of the genre (except necro – ‘i need drugs’ was hilarious, and a few gravediggaz tracks were cool), but there’s something about what he says and his story that really speaks to me. his choice of production is impeccable: RJD2 and Darryl Palumbo on the same track? Jello Bafara and DJ Shadow? El-P?

    Come on, you cannot even argue! Those are some tasteful and solid ass risks. Em never took risks like that except for when he had Elton come on stage with him, which was a huge publicity stunt more than anything. From a political standpoint… “mosh”?!?!?! come on! Cage has him covered on ‘Grand ol’ Party Crash’. w/ jello doing the bush impressions. When you compare who pushes the envilope further, lyrically and musically, CK wins.

    However, I really do respect Eminiem, and I love the song ‘rock bottom’. I’ll give him that he’s probrably a better freestyle artist, but really… if he didn’t rip anything from Cage, wouldn’t he be the better man and leave his name out his first major label debut?

    I can’t wait for Cage’s new record “Depart from Me”

  2. Em is faggot. Cage is a real Emcee…..Evil Dead is better

    Roxbury MA what up my niggas

  3. haha slim shady is a faggot yo. Cage was nice. ….Evil Dead is better

    Roxbury MA what up my niggas

  4. 1st of all i am a fan of hip hop….that underground an commercial talk dont even come into play cuz corny shit i wont even listen to because CORNY isnt HIP HOP…all i give a fuck about is lyricism an for me both slim an cage sre lyricists…jus cuz slim sells more records dont make him better…but also u cant use that against him neither cuz wen it comes down to it maybe he does drop that one track to sell more records but at the end of the day i still dont think u can ever question his lyrics…how he flips his syllables word play an rhyme patterns is amazin an sayin he has no crediillity is ridiculous!however cage if not better IS on the same level as em but to me there styles r totally different…they may say some things that sound alike but how they write an deliver they shit is totally different!some ppl wont give cage a chance cuz his voice is less radio friendly an they av no idea how to put words together or realise how the shits structured…they here wats said rather than how its said!to me it dont matter bout the beef…both r sick so ill continue to listen to an like both….even tho the artists i listen to r considered ‘underground’….arsonists,j5,high an mighty,mad skills,cage,weathermen,BIG L,immortal technique,heltah skeltah,ogz’z,buckshot an blackmoon etc that doesnt mean ima feel embarrased to admit i like eminem also….purely becuz his talent shines through all the ullshit bein spoke on him….same for cage….now keep hip hop alive an respect real hip hip for wat it is!!!!check my shit if you want



  5. ...Mst Muthafuckas... says:

    Eminem’s a bitch that when “rappin” on the mic sounds lika a fuckin’snitch


  6. Blood Boy says:

    “…and You can all pretend you gave a fuCK!!!”

  7. lolz we luv cag says:

    Okay, all of these losers are obviously kissing up to Cage because he’s ‘underground hip hop’ and Eminem is mainstream. You think that Cage wins because of what, grammar nazis and spelling whores take his side. First off, Eminem is purely original, Cage is straight trash. Eminem’s style, his flow, his delivery rips up Cage and fucking obliterates him. Comparing Eminem to Cage is basicly throwing Cage into a meat grinder. I took Eminem’s song lyrics, then I took Cage’s song lyrics, just for pure flow, to read that shit and check out his style and how it sounds compared to this whack underground MC Cage rapping about girls who slit their wrists. Eminem’s flow is SINISTER. Cage is nothing but another ICP rapper, straight trash, one of the worst to come out there. He isn’t rap, just a little emo kid who go throwin in a mental institution and a bunch of bullshit. Eminem took beatings too, he had a hard life as well but he doesn’t have to fall back on like, every song and relate to his past struggles. Cage uses his past as a gimmick, and is nothing more than a no talent fuck up. Eminem = Unchallenged flow.

    Nothing more than a giummick. How do you even compare these two? Btw you guys need to stop kissing Cage’s ass and each other’s, just because you’re not lazy and take time to type doesn’t mean Cage is better.

  8. lolz we luv cag says:

    Lets be truthful here….Cage is an emo bitch boy rapper. Listned to his shit and all you think is blah blah blah. He has absolutely no flow and bit Eminem’s style.

  9. PlunX says:

    The only album that I think Cage can be considered ‘emo’ on is Hell’s Winter, which I’m pretty sure most fans would consider his worst album so far. None of the albums before that sounded emo to me at all, especially stuff like The Smut Peddlers, Nighthawks, and even Movies for the Blind. I actually believe Eminem has a lot of ‘emo’ tendencies, especially on stage or when being interviewed/on MTV. It’s too bad we don’t get to see Cage on MTV.

    I’ve never been an Eminem fan and I’d heard a few Cage songs before even hearing Eminem and I immediately thought he was trying to copy his style in -certain- ways. Then it just got worse and worse when I compared the two, which caused me to not give much of a thought towards Eminem. I think Cage is a way better lyricist either way it goes, I just hope that his next album(s) won’t be quite as bad as Hell’s Winter.

  10. ryan says:

    i cant believe i heard some1 say cage is garbage

    r u guys fuckin stupid cage was around before eminem is a hella good rapper, but i dont think em was biting his shit and even tho eminem sucks now i think when the slim shady lp came out he was better than cage, but shit like smut peddlers, leak bros n shit like that is still hella tyteee

  11. among the sleep says:

    I used to be a huge eminem fan, long before he dropped the slim shady LP, I had most of the songs from that record by the way of trading underground rare bootlegged tapes.

    (it was the only way to get this shit back then)

    eminem was dope as fuck…
    cage has always been and will forever remain dope as fuck as well
    he just stayed true to himself and now he’s not washed up on the shit shore of an akon song.

    still widely respected, still successful…
    at this point I think just looking at it logically,
    if you’re impressed by ANY of the new eminem releases
    you’re like a codependant girl who doesn’t realize
    that she’s getting treated like shit

    and come on…. what kind of a name is slim shady.

  12. Psycho+Logical says:

    Wow can u say RETARD haha eminim and cage are both repetitive in what they rap about but cage changes up his style em just does same thing every record-“mom ruind my life and girl friend screwd me over every 1 hates me ill kill u all” and u want to speak on cage,pfft get off the computer stop E-thuggin and go buy a cage record u simpleton

  13. Catacomb Kid says:

    Cage all the way, eminem forgot where he came from

    Who every said that…i agree with you 110 percent

  16. Sum1WhoKnowsWhatHesTalkingAbout says:

    i think what i just witnessed

    was every person in the world… thinking that if they vote for the under dog

    that thats promoting “real hip-hop” because the dude aint signed

    and never will be..

    his life story… damn.. i feel for him.. dude had it rough

    rougher then Em? of course he did

    now has that made him more musically talented?

    lets have a look see….

    nah… nah it hasn’t

    Marshall Mathers has been called a ground breaking artist and has made history

    and has been acclaimed by some of the living breathing greats such as Rakim, as an amazing artist


    in short

    all cuz the dude isn’t signed does NOT mean he’s wack… at all

    Em was once unsigned with a cd that sold less then a hundred records

    but if ur unsigned does that mean you’re good?

    no.. it doesn’t… all you Encore haters can get off eachother’s dicks for real

    so eminem finally made a CD that didnt have 15 solid amazing tracks.. he still had enough to outsell everyone else

    and ripped all of his verses on the Re-Up for those that think he “fell off now” ?

    but trying to teach sum1 sumthin when they think they’re right is like trying to teach a retard, Trig.

    so i give

    Cage is the best rapper ever

    all hail cage

  17. META4 says:

    CAGE, hands down one of the illest MCs. EM’s only good shit was the Slim Shady LP.
    any of you fools who think EM brought cage to the scene are IDIOTS!
    CAGE claimed EM coped his style way before EM went mainstream.
    CAGE easily wins this beef.


  18. MACLAX says:


  19. Bi-Polar High Roller says:

    Its quite obvious nobodys gonna reach a comon grounds on whos a better rapper, cuz the eminem fans will talk shit about cage n the other way around.

    Ill give u the facts.

    1) Cages shit is true shit, he raps about his childhood and the fucked up things that happenned to him growing up.
    2) Cages flow and style was invented and around on albums before Eminem was ever even heard of, is it at all possible em heard his shit n said “hey, i wanna do that?” I think thats quite possible.
    3) Cages last album “Hells Winter” is about him trying to reform his life and get off drugs, and his struggle to do so. It may not be accepted widely by his fans, but its a good album if you consider what its for.
    4) Cages style is much more complicated than Em’s. When you listen to eminem you hear cages style in it, but it sounds like if cage had down syndrome because cages use of words is much more diverse and clever than ems instead of every other word being bitch, fuck and cunt.

    1) Em released his movie 8-mile to tell people about his struggles growing up in “the ghetto”. if ur gonna call cage whiney n emo call em that too cuz all he does is bitch about his problems getting into the black crowd.
    2) alot of the things in eminems movie are completely false and have been disproven by witness accounts and such.
    3) alot of the claims eminem makes about his mother and his troubled life have been challenged by his mothers book that tells the “true story” of his childhood.
    4) Eminem is widely considered a sellout because all he does is do shock-rap to get young audiences because nobody buys more records than a “troubled” teen, which is eminems ONLY true following. others buy the CD, but if these teenagers werent there to jump on the bandwagon Em would have been completely forgotten long ago.

    This is just some of the real shit that deals with this subject. Make ur decision on who you support, but as for myself i am Cage all the way. I prefer to hear about a guys fucked up life thats true, over a made-up story by a bleach blonde haired sellout who used to be a vanilla ice wannabe. if your wondering about the vanilla ice wannabe comment look for old pictures of eminem and my point will be clear.

    at this point id say eminem can suck a dick, but im sure he already has. probably elton johns…

  20. Watermouth says:

    Bi-Polar Hi Roller all the way. No one has ever spoken better words about Cage. I have to say, I do like em’s early stuff, but just listen to him, he’s just a pussy. Atleast Cage actually lived through all this stuff that he so frequently writes about. Cage has been doing what he’s doing for so long, way before eminem got big or did anything good with hip hop, which he didn’t even do anything all that good. he’s become a generic mainstream rapper that i hate so much and i’m sure all of you do too. Cage has been true to hip hop through out his whole career. so fuck eminem, fuck all you cage haters cause you don’t know shit. Listen to his shit with the smut peddlers, listen to leak bros., listen to the weathermen, just listen to anything that cage is on or was associated with. eminem is wack!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Keeping It Real says:

    A while ago sometime in 1998, I first heard Eminem and predicted that he’d have staying power. Now, some 10 years later, I was right. But over that period of time, Cage entered my eardrum realm…

    Now, having grown up and with a stronger sense of what real music is, I can truly say this: Eminem is a battle rapper who is decent in lyrical wordplay, and by chance of being in the burgeoning Detroit underground hip hop scene plus the obvious “inspiration” in terms of subject matter via Cage…not to mention also freestyling on the Wake Up Show, attained fame.(being “discovered” by Dr. Dre)

    Cage is more of a novelist in terms of his wordplay and subject matter, along with his delivery (which I consdider his trump card and saving grace). This gets overlooked by the average so-called hip hop fan who depends on punchlines and shock value to find his or her comfort zone in a rapper…

    I haven’t heard anything decent from Eminem since the Eminem Show (which is overrated btw along with The Marshall Mathers LP); Hell’s Winter just left me in WOW mode. Now, with a growing fanbase and a highly possible biopic on his life re-enacted by Shia Lebouf, I can truly say that CK won…and that King Mathers (the upcoming Eminem album) will be outdone commercially and critically by Depart From Me (Cage’s upcoming album).

    Oh, and always keep an open mind on everything. It’s really beneficial. :)

  22. J.K. says:

    The way I see it, there isn’t even a contest. Cage is one of the illest MC’s out there. Shady is a bitch/sellout/sensored/pop artist. That motherfucker has always been a bitch too. Anyone who rhymes about Tom Green, on some MTV shit is just in it for the ca$h. You can’t tell me that if you pick up a Cage, Weathermen, Smut Peddlers, or especially a Leak Bros. album and not instantly fall in love with that shit. I don’t know if it’s the simple fact that people can’t comprehend Cage or his lyrics, because there is no one out there as ill as him. Cage’s style, flow and especially lyrics are much iller and intelligent than Shady’s. Do yourself a favor and pick up “Movies for the Blind”, “Weatherproof” and “Waterworld” by the Leak Bros (Cage & Tame 1). Those are 3 of the illest albums I have in my collection, and anyone who has any love of hip-hop and respects it and the culture of it, would realize that Shady is really a bitch and Cage is real, and a million times iller than Shady.

  23. Myles says:

    dude em had infinte and soul intent before he even cought the eyes of cage. and had the same style on infinte as slim shady lp.. 313, role model andrun rabbit run= cage’s lyrics/skill put together in a giant ball and put into a blank mc….cage is garbage learn your hiphop

  24. Keeping It Real says:

    I’ve already explained on that: Cage debuted in 1993 on Pete Nice’s solo debut album, with the horrorcore style. Eminem was on the battle rapper/postive thing. It would behoove you to not say in the least that Eminem didn’t garner some sort of inspiration from Cage, Esham, or any other acid rap-type emcee during the late 90s. And just for the sake of curiousity…what kind of hip hop do you listen to…Myles?

    Have you up to this point that you’ve read my post listen to hip hop that’s not supported by a major media outlet?

  25. The Russian says:

    oh my fuckin god! Anyone that supports cage as even in the same league as emimen is a fuckin moron. cage’s lyrics are so boring and his beats so Shitty! Also his voice sounds just like my garbage disposal. Eminem has more talent in little toe than cage will ever have. eminems lyrics are absolutely brilliant. Just cuz they dont talk about stabbing and gutting and shooting and bluffing doesnt make them weak.

    Anyone that has actually listened to the lyrics in almost anyone of Eminems songs can see that hes a fuckin genius. cage is a half ass no talent tool that no one would ever have heard if he hadn’t put his name next to eminems.

  26. Tussin says:

    Personally, I think both lyricists have different strengths and weaknesses. For example, I think Cage is a lot better at being descriptive and telling stories, whereas, Eminem is a lot better at the whole battle rap thing. Overall, I would have to say that Cage is the better of the two. He’s a better songwriter than Eminem. Also, Eminem has been on a steady decline for the past few years, while Cage has been getting better and better lyrically and artistically. Cage just makes more interesting music than Eminem does, hands down. Eminem has become boring and one-dimensional.

    A lot of people will say that Eminem has better punchlines, which is true, but punchline lyrics are not what makes a rapper good in my opinion. You can use all the most clever metaphors imaginable, but if you can’t write an intelligent song with some meaning to it, then your lyrics don’t mean shit.

    For example, check out newer songs from Cage, like Subtle Art of the Break Up, Too Heavy For Cherubs, Ballad of Worms. This all has artistic value to it. Eminem used to make songs that had a point to them, but stopped doing that a while ago. This is why I say that Cage is the better of the two. Im not saying Eminem sucks, because he still is a good lyricist, but he continues to decline while Cage gets better with every album.

  27. Tussin says:

    Another thing I’ll acknowledge, is that Eminem kind of got his foot in the door with the whole ‘Slim Shady LP’ (which was an ill album), but then made a career out of dissing everybody in the industry to get attention.

    This is what Im talking about when I say Eminem is one – dimensional. If you even pay attention to the disses, Cage’s disses were so much more relevant; he brought up actual weak points of Eminem. Eminem, however, just talked about how he thinks Cage is wack and he will kill him. That further proves my point; Cage is the better and more intelligent artist.

  28. johnson says:

    i think the author of this thread should do their homework and actually listen to some cage esham etc and stop being up eminems ass…..this whole topic is a joke…….go and listen to masta ace…..eminem aint nothin new get over it

  29. ILLEST 4 LETTER WORD says:

    i grew up listenin to eminem and memorizing his lyrics .. and then i heard of cage and read plenty of bios and listen to most of his songs.. i beleive cage is the best rapper . in my opinion. and fuck if he looks like a punk. or his songs arent reall hip hop.. but listening to dipset and all that bullshit of “i get money” ” I GET BITCHES ” AND ” i got guns?”
    thats what every mainstream hiphop song is all about . eminem was crazy … WAS but even then, he wasnt anything close to what cage was and is. the point is .. hip hop is dying. slowly up on the surface. but the underground lives on. why?
    because the dont rap about. i money or bitches or guns.. they laugh at it and make fun of it in their songs.
    stay underground . where its alive

  30. jabberwockey superfly says:

    Look, im 21 now, and i was the biggest eminem fan when he came out (i think i was 12 or something). i still got SSLP and MMLP memorized word for word. The dude got me into hip-hop.

    and, thanks to him, i listened to everything hip-hop has to offer.

    as my hip-hop matured… i got into the underground. didn’t know much about cage. jus knew that he was beefing with eminem, and like any eminem fan, i just blew him off as wack.

    with that being said, today… i can safely say, cage is 100 times doper than eminem. it doesn’t matter what eminem did. he just made up all his rhymes.

    Eminem was never true to himself from the start. As I watched his career throughout the years, i realized how much of a fraud he is. he even said in intervews that people didn’t like his “positive” shit on infinite, so he completely got on that slim shady shit, and just made shit up. he was never hardcore. he was never in the streets. he had like one friend who was proof. he was never into drugs until he blew up. dude just has a good imagination, i’ll give him that. and he was funny on his first two albums

    cage is just ill as fuck. all you eminem fans, this is comin from one of ya’ll. grow the fuck up. i can tell from sum of ya’ll posts, ya’ll don’t have the slightest clue about what real hiphop is.

    anyways. my favorite rapper is aesop rock. ya”ll need to peep his shit if u like cage

  31. grimey says:


    best album ever

    cage and tame were unstoppable on that record
    has anyone else noticed the ratio of cage fans to M&M fans on “The Eminem Blog”?
    em was a flash in the pan,he blew up and disappeared like every other mainstream pop act. Now he doesn’t have any fans left to defend him lol

    “Depart from Me” drops summer 08

  32. john says:

    cage sucks, necro sucks, all that hoororcore bullshit sucks.

    demigodz > weathermen

    cage got his teeth knocked out by celph titled, cage is a pussy. period.

    thank you and goodnight.

  33. Wiw says:

    *Sigh* Most of the people who actually know what hiphop is, can say cage is an amazing lyricist with endless talent….

    However in my opinion, as someone with an IQ above 50..unlike some of you. I like eminems delivery and lines better. I’m a huge cage fan, But don’t use hells winter as an argument unless you are a retard, I have heard a total of 4 ill lines in the entire album…

    Yeah some of ems albums were horrible..

    So was hells winter……

    Half of the shit on the blog is bias and idiotic shit, I will admit that. I doubt half of the quotes listed are real..

    But I will say that all in all I’ve seen a lot iller material from em than cage…..And this is all I do really, is analyze and listen to music, really not into anything else.

    Quotables from em outweigh quotables from cage, is ALL I’M FUCKING SAYING… Half of you are probably the same fucking person trying to back yourself up, get another hobby man…

  34. xONEMICx says:

    Obviously Eminem is one of the all time greats, and he has so much credibility already that it doesn’t even matter how many shitty albums he puts out. The Marshall Mathers lp is a fucking masterpiece.

    However, Cage hasn’t really put out anything bad, sure every rapper has a few bad songs, but to me his music is very consistent. And seriously FUCK all you who say Hell’s Winter is garbage, that shit might be the best hip-hop album to drop since Stillmatic. Yes movies for the blind and all of Cage’s early shit is good too, But Hell’s Winter is fucking ridiculous. 4 ill lines? Are you fucking joking “Wiw”. I don’t even think i could find 4 lines that aren’t ill on that album.

    Hell’s Winter and The Marshall Mathers lp are both right next to each other on my best hip-hop albums list. But Em’s released some bad stuff, Cage hasn’t yet. They’re both working on new shit right now. We’ll see…

    All time talent and credibility- Eminem > Cage

    The better MC as of right now- Eminem < Cage

    and just to piss some people off- The Marshall Mathers lp < Hell’s Winter

  35. Only Eminem says:

    Eminem Is About 10 Times SICCER, And 50 Billion Times Funnier And 2 Times More Creative. CAGE Doesnt Even Have Another Persona, Like “EM” Has (SLIM SHADY).Eminem Did Get Beat Up And Picked On At School, He Was Knocked Into A FUCCIN COlMA!! He Did Have A Mom On Drugs, He Did Try To Commit SUICIDE. On The Song Rock Bottom, He Talks About Being BROKE And Having A Daughter. Oh, And He Uses His Real Name MARSHALL MATHERS. He Has Nothing To Hide From And Cage Is A Fuccin NOBODY, He Sounds like SHIT!! For Real CANT EVEN HEAR WHAT THE FUCC HE’S TRYING TO SAY!!

    Man. This is is ridiculous. I can’t even believe people still talk about this Cage\Eminem beef… its sooooooo 1999.

    People, get over it and move on. Eminem isn’t as good as he used to be and neither is Cage. I used to be into this crap when I was a teenager. I grew out of it and ventured into real hiphop.

    And the reason why Eminem never dissed Cage as much is because he is underground and below the radar, which would make Cage sell more records if he did. Just like when Chino XL dissed Tupac.

    And if I had to choose, I would pick Eminem over Cage anyday. Atleast Eminems rhymes make sense, and are well put together. Cage just doesn’t have it like Eminem, his words are shitty and don’t make any sense. Its like he just finds words to rhyme and doesn’t consider if they’re going to flow well. Like Necro for example, he’s garbage and only had a couple of hot songs, but he recycles a lot of the same rhymes, just like Cage.

    Bottom line is… they don’t have it anymore… none of them. And out of all of this Eminem lasted the longest, so even though Eminem sucks now, much love and respect to him for sticking it out the longest and have more dope and classic songs than Cage.

    eminem is more talented than cage, but it sure sounds like he borrowed cage’s persona.

    90% of eminem’s fans are white teeny boppers who never listened to rap music before they saw mtv.

  41. tabor says:

    so eminem ripped off cage….who ripped his shit off R.A. the rugged man……

    R.A. > cage

    apathy > cage

    rise > cage

    majik most > cage

    dutchmassive > cage

    …….pile of week old dog shit > cage………….

    I dont have to comment. Tussin said it all.
    Cage is EASILY the more gifted of the two. Underground music always has been better than Mainstream anyway. Always has always will.

    whoever wrote this is biased as fuck lol they are both hella good mc’s and lyricists

  44. Nick says:

    How can you say Em fell off after Slim Shady LP you moron.

    The Marshall Mathers LP and The Eminem Show are two of the best hip-hop albums EVER.

    – Stan
    – The Way I Am
    – Drug Ballad
    – Kim
    – Who Knew
    – Soldier
    – Say Goodbye To Hollywood
    – Till I Collapse

    Some of his best tracks from them, oh yeah so ‘money driven’. Fucking idiot.

    Cage doesn’t come CLOSE to Eminem. Not even close. Go listen to Renegade and be tutored in real rap genius fuck head.

    First and foremost, I will give it to Eminem on being one of the first Emcee’s to bring real hiphop to the mainstream. The Slim Shady LP and The Marshall Mathers LP are his two best albums, hands down. Eminem is creative, he has skill there is no doubt about it. The thing with Eminem though, he re-uses ALOT of his shit. And no one can say that he doesn’t. I have scribble jam dvd’s of Eminem freestyling against people and he was spitting lines back in ’97 and some of the lines he used were on The Slim Shady LP, he can’t freestyle to save his life. He pre-writes almost all of his shit. Whether or not Eminem bit Cage’s style, I couldn’t tell you. I can tell you though, that Cage had it was tougher than Eminem. I mean he was forced to tie shit around his Dad’s arm while his Dad injected heroin into him? His Dad had a gun fight in front of him with the Middletown police department. Spending time in a Psyche ward, abusing PCP, and having been shipped to Germany just to get the shit kicked out of him by his uncle. Listen to the song on Hell’s Winter “Too Heavy for Cherubs” and “Stripes” Eminem openly admitted to not doing half the shit that he says on his records, he does it too just get a rise out of people. Cage on the other hand, Cage has always spit real shit. Movies For The Blind is a fucking amazing and incredible album, both lyrically and production wise. Agent Orange is suck an incredible song and anyone that says otherwise needs to re-evaluate their lives and go listen to some T-Pain.

    Here are some lyrics from Cage:

    -Agent Orange-

    I’m Against the Machine like Rage; bitches say, “I hate you Cage!”
    After circle jerks, I wash my hands off and do dirt
    Sick with a smirk, plus I be disturbed
    Fucked the first two bitches like dogs and I jacked off on the third
    I’m obvious oblivion but that’s my science
    Fuck your head up like corn rows put in by blind giants
    Haven’t been with it, since the last corpse kidded
    Wore a blood stained smile, and told the cop, “He did it!”
    Of course the most raw throughout the 9-1-4, 1-0-9-4-0
    Got you beasts shook like Doc Moreau
    Pour beer out for yourself because you’re walkin dead
    I’ll burn your house down like a fuckin Talking Head
    And get high like fuck, and pick apart my brain
    Disections [HA!] may [HA!] mentally [HA!] cause [HA!] infections
    Break you with inventions, sick intentions
    Leave most MC’s lost in my sentence
    I’m strictly, beyond and back, come and get me
    Hemotobin, left from a lip like a hickie
    Leak smoke got me ready to murder a rookie
    Killers on your block tuck in they dicks like Tootsie
    Come and witness what your shit missed
    Watch the glock kiss, Little Sis’ wetter like a Baptist
    Inconvenience; dilemma, like sitting on, Venus
    With no shuttle, treeless
    Try and pick apart some Agent Orange perception
    Catch frontal lobe damage and not manage correction
    I smell leak smoke, left by the anonymous
    Beats brought back to life, die, when I’m embalmin this
    Come around and get yo’ ass shot to clusters
    I’ma play the injuns with the arrows you be Custard’s.. back
    I write upon ya, divorce your head and neck then scalp it
    Rip off all your flesh and make a outfit

    – Among The Sleep –

    I’m seconds from meeting what mossberg had to offer
    And feed my thoughts to Christ to the altar
    I wake up on a red floor
    Axing a dead whore
    My dick chewed up, why I let this bitch give me head for?
    Pigs tryin’ ta kick down the door, I’m out for me
    Opened the sliding glass door and hopped off the balcony
    Fell 30 flights to car on 10th Av.
    Landed on a FedEx-disguised meth lab
    And after it blew up
    I woke up and threw up
    Stuck my hand in my pants, my shit ain’t chewed up
    Wiped the puke from my face
    Then leaved this place
    With a 4-5 in the waist
    At an elitist pace
    No breathing space
    I step out and show face
    Within 3 minutes I’m approached for H
    Then a shotgun to neck, now loose the weapon
    And my scull fragments painted the sky for seconds

    – Suicidal Failure –

    Took the phone off the hook, ate multi-colored pills
    Washed it down with Absolut and started writin out my will
    Give my dawgs bootlegs PS2 and DC
    To my girl who left me when she said, “Pick me or PCP”
    Since I love to smoke I thought it was a joke
    Tried to hang myself and I fell free from the rope
    Broke both my arms, my neck smashed my femur
    Got up somehow and limped in front of a beamer
    Cracked my rib cage, look what you did Cage, you’re dying
    But I’m not dead yet I’m still trying
    Cut my wrist and walked past some crips bleedin red
    In hopes that I get shot in the fuckin head

    In my opinion, Cage is a better and more real Emcee.

    that’s why cage is still making music, and eminem retired like a bitch and got fat. The Weathermen fucking stomp on D12. WM for life

  47. Ben says:

    Cage is has way more skills and intelligence than Em.
    Not to mention: Went from battle rap to gunplay like we didn’t notice the change?……Yeah right.
