With Eminem’s eighth album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, the rap star took over BET’s “Rap City” for a special edition called “Em 360”.
During the episode, Eminem and Slaughterhouse took over the mic for a freestyle session, while host Big Tigger sat down with the rapper to reflect on his nearly 20-year career — from Infinite to MMLP2.
He addressed rumors that he may be retiring after this album. “I want to rap until it’s not fun anymore,” Eminem explained. “When I do set the mic down, I feel like I wanna have something to do with the music, producing, whatever it is. I still wanna be involved.”
Later, Slaughterhouse joined him to discuss their next album, which is currently in the works. “I think the guys just dug a lot deeper, it’s a very introspective album, very melancholy,” said Joe Budden. “The lyricism is there, of course, the passion is there, all the things that this group was built on are still present.”
