BET.com reported that Gucci Mane sat down for a brief conversation in support of his new autobiography, and when the host asked about the controversial rapper, Gucci hinted that Eminem had lost favor for a long time.
After the release of Revival and Kamikaze, the first one that was strongly criticized, the latter was better received by fans than by critics, the status of Eminem as a legend of hip-hop has been questioned by some rappers and fans.

According to BET.com, Gucci Mane once "helped" Mariah Carey in her fight with the rapper since 2009, so it seems that Gucci, for a long time, did not think much about Eminem.
In any case, his comments provoked a lot of conversation between fans of Gucci and Eminem online. Some on Twitter have argued that purely outside of album sales and history in the community, Eminem's status has been established and always will be.

Others said that nobody listens to their albums in their car anymore. In fact, that is precisely the comment that Mr. Gucci Mane made and asked the host if anyone already listened to his records.
Gucci Mane said: "I'm not playing Eminem in my car." Do you play it in yours? "According to Smiley, Eminem's records have an opportunity in his car usually during the first week after the release of Marshall Mathers, but after that, he deactivates them.
Unfortunately for Gucci, not many people are too fond of his status on the scene, arguing that his collaboration with Logan Paul was one of the vilest of all time.
