The label executive addressed his disappointment with Vibe magazine naming Slim Shady the "best rapper alive".
He told MTV: "S**t like that kinda pisses me off. You know why? Because let's take Eminem's records. Watch my analogy. Eminem is a great artist, no doubt. He puts words together, he's witty, a smart lyricist, a great lyricist. But how can we say the guy is the best rapper alive?
Gotti also remarked that Eminem's albums are no comparison to previous efforts by rappers Jay-Z and DMX.
"Look at Hov [Jay-Z]. I've been to battles with DMX, Jay-Z and Ja Rule, that was some real s**t. Homie, you wouldn't been able to survive. I say take Eminem, and let him say 'Hard Knock Life'. Still hot. Now, let's have Jay-Z say the 'We Made You' song. They would laugh him out the f**king building. It would be over."
