Although Eminem built his reputation as a battle rapper before he shot to super stardom, one of his most famous losses came at the hands of Chicago rapper Juice.
Back in 1997, during the Rap Olympics, Juice defeated seasoned battle rappers like Rhymefest and Dose One, before eventually beating Eminem — who actually caught the attention of Dr. Dre and Interscope Records shortly after.
During a recent interview on the Murder Master Music Show this week, Juice recalled the legendary battle… before offering Em a rematch.
“I was lucky enough to win that particular day. There were a lot of different factors that played into why I won. I started the head games, like how Floyd Mayweather or Conor McGregor does. I started talking shit early. I already tried to establish that I was dominant before we even met. I was lucky enough to beat him. They did a documentary on it — with Netflix and they will air it soon. If he ever wanted to do it again. I would beat him again. It would be a Slaughter House, because he would need the other members of the group to deal with me. With the person he is now, the pressure is on him.”
