I'm the best white rapper-turned-actor: Mark Wahlberg

Los Angeles, Dec 16 : Actor Mark Wahlberg considers himself the best white rapper-turned actor and has placed himself ahead of Grammy Award winner Eminem.


In an interview with Global Grind TV, the 42-year-old, who went by the name "Marky Mark", claimed to be the most successful white rapper-turned-actor, reports contactmusic.com.

"I'm the best white rapper-turned actor. Eminem did a great job in '8 Mile', but he only made one movie so I definitely have that title," said Wahlberg.

In 1991, Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, US hip-hop group led by Wahlberg, released their single "Good vibrations". The track was the lead song from their debut album, 'Music For The People', which reached no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

It was three years later in 1994 that he made his big screen debut in Danny DeVito's comedy "Renaissance Man", however, his work was noticed only after he featured in "The Basketball Diaries", alongside Leonardo DiCaprio.
