dissing Benzino or Mariah Carry doesn't make it a credible streak
I think it's all positioning. Em ethered non threats like Benzino or feuded with jokes like ICP, the industry saw him lyrically destroy every rapper he beefed with but never considered who Em was beefing with.
He essentially built up a strong rep for himself without doing anything worthy to gain that rep. I'm not dissing him, Slim is one of my favorites, I just don't think he's this guy who could lyrically destroy any emcee.
