Christopher wallace aka The Notorious Big or Biggie Smalls, a drug dealing seventeen year old rapper with an ambition to make it in life and get rich while doing so. Marshall Mathers, Eminem his stage name was just a young white kid in a black detroit community with a passion for rapping. Both rappers have changed the current and and will be changing the future rap with their songs, not only by just their rap but from their persona as well. Just think about it for a second, if you walk into the mall and look around at peoples shirts, go into stores and look around you will either hear or see something Biggie Smalls related. Biggie has carried his legend throughout time because people are realizing him and guys like Tupac are the ones who changed the “bad boy” image in todays world. Its not the same anymore you don’t have guys on harleys in gangs or in their classic cars, its the “thug life” thats changed the world today and Biggie Smalls was just the creator. Eminem a Detroit kid rapping in just a whole in the wall place with a ambition to make it in a rap career when everyone in his family counting on him, but nobody believing in him. He was one of the only white rappers in a black community growing up and trying to make it. “What comes around goes around” is a quote from eminem when people would try to bring him down and not believe in him anymore. eminem has changed the era of white rappers before him there were no good white rappers and he is still very successful today as a rapper. eminem uses his daughter as motivation a lot and raps about her in most if not every one of his songs. Growing up for biggie wasn't much different, he had gang members trying to fight him everyday because of the life that he chosen. It was... ... middle of paper ... ...own rapper at the time of his death and with the rivalry between tupac made it more major. Eminem is definitely the most worldwide known white rapper alive today and back in his prime. Both rappers carry on a huge legacy and neither of theirs is over still today there are songs being released that biggie recorded and never went out on the big lights and eminem is still alive today and making music today. I think throughout time a lot more people will apperciate what biggie has brought to the rap era and more people world wide would accept it but it many may not. There's no telling what either of the rappers legacy will be in ten or fifteen or even one hundred years from now. In my mind they will always be some of the greatest rappers ever in the history. But once again both of the rappers didn't just change the name of the game they changed life today as we know it.
