back in the day, the only white rapper whos name youd have heard of was a total joke, vannila ice (his eminem diss is the worst track in the history of music). Though hip hop started black, now millions of white people listen, and eminem was the first white guy to do it seriously in the mainstream and became arguably the most popular rapper of modern times. Now there are more, bubba sparxxx has teamed with timbaland and made two albums, and there will be plenty more, and more and more and more. I think a reason for this will be because many of the black guys talk complete jibberish (want great examples? 50 cent, the game, jadikass, etc. etc. etc.) and the white guys tend to not talk the same utter garbage most of the time.
