"It's obviously an honour to have won the fans'' support by being voted the Best Rapper Alive," Contactmusic quoted eminem, as saying. "I don't think that there is any one rapper that is simply the best, though. Everyone who was in consideration and many others are the best at certain things, and at what they do. But since Vibe's offering the distinction, hell yeah, I'll accept," he added.
Other competitors for the accolade included Nas, Kanye West, T.I. and Rick Ross.
