This pairing works on exactly zero levels. No I.D. has made a name for himself by producing electronic synth beats for hapy-go-lucky Kanye West albums and Big Sean mixtapes. Eminem has never made a song of that nature in his career. In fact, he’s done exactly the opposite. If you think we’re going to be in for a surprise here then your in fact in for a bigger surprise of your own. Artists need to stop ruining their careers because they finally have the opportunity to work with a legendary producer they have never worked with.
These Japanese fans have no idea what hit them. Rap on an international scale is such a hilarious concept because the Japanese clearly have no idea what the origins of the genre are or the words behind the music; but boy do they love it.
Basically what we learn from this interview is that all he cares about is the music. Movies, business, drugs, it doesn’t matter to him. There are so many talented artists who need to take note and start doing the same.
Detroit hip-hop stems much farther than just Enimen & D12. Without J. Dilla, Obie Trice, Royce Da 5’9″ the legendary Trick Trick, we would not consider Detroit hip-hop to be as tough and rugged as we do. This video explains just how deep the culture runs.
The things I’d do to own that Yelawolf sweater with the geese on it. Radioactive in stores now.
Now that’s white power. VIBE closes out the year with two of Shady’s most wanted. Issue hits newsstands on December 6, but peep the excerpts of their interview with Erik Parker below.
Eminem, what advice do you offer, if any, on being scrutinized for being a white rapper. Do you guys ever talk about race in that way?
Eminem: We make jokes about it, but I don’t think we talk about it in depth. As I was listening to his music, I am not even thinking about any of that shit. It’s just the music. That’s one of the things that’s great about it. I’m not even thinking about it when I hear the music.
Yelawolf: We do poke fun of it because it’s funny. Like, he calls me White Dog.
Oh, you called him that on the BET Awards Cypher. I didn’t realize it was an ongoing joke?
EM: Yeah, or Beige Sheep. [Laughs]
YW: Cracker Nuts. Whatever, I think it’s kinda unspoken.
EM: We deal with it enough as it is. So now, let’s make music.
YW: Let’s make great records. At the end of the day, that’s all there is to do.
Yelawolf > Drake. Argue with me I dare you. Radioactive is out next week.
You know how it goes. Just about everyone spit some bars tonight at the BET Awards.
