When it comes to the rap game, Eminem is one of the greatest artists of all time. The ‘Rap God’ revolutionized the rap world with his fast flow and bars. However, over the years he has made enemies. He notably dismantled Machine Gun Kelly after the rapper made a diss track. But that wasn’t going to be the case when he tried to prank Michael Jordan.

During his time in the NBA, Jordan made a name for himself as the most ruthless competitor. His spooky aura scared the teams even before the match started. His will to win is what put him on top of the mountain among NBA greats.

Eminem said he would dunk on Michael Jordan

Speaking to Jordan on the phone, Eminem was close to closing his deal for the sneaker collaboration. However, he nearly ruined his chances in the end. The Detroit native then told MJ he could dunk him. And His Airness’ reaction put the rap god on ice.

He said, “Everything was cool as he is super cool. Everything was fine until we got to the end of the phone call when I said ‘Yo man, when are you comin’ to Detroit so I can dunk you.’ And it was crickets. I don’t remember exactly what he said, but he just felt like laughing. And I remember hanging up the phone and going, “Oh my god, I think maybe I messed it up.”
