Your favorite rappers might be reading what you write online.
"Once I’m on the computer, it’s over, because I’m tempted to look at everything," Em told The New York Times in a new interview. "I went on the computer recently and got on one site, read five comments and was like, 'Man.' I have friends that do it — rapper friends. I’m like, 'I don’t know how you do that.' Because you end up wanting to fight someone, kill them, or kill yourself — usually all three at once."
Eminem might be trolling your comments, but he has his own opinions to make about the current state of hip-hop.
"I try to stay up on everything that’s out," he said. "I love [Lil] Wayne, Drake, Big Sean, Schoolboy Q. I love Kendrick [Lamar]. I just try to pay attention to what’s out. Wayne puts out a new song, and my ears perk up. There are certain artists that make me do that just because of the caliber that they rhyme at — it’s like candy to me.
"Kendrick, the way he puts albums together — front to back, they’re like pieces of art," he continued. "But hip-hop needs Drake, too. Hip-hop needs Big Sean. I feel like hip-hop is in a good place right now. There’s this balance of things going on, and it feels like some of the best rappers are the most successful. Sometimes that’s not the case."
Slim Shady - who also praised Kanye West elsewhere in the interview - is curating the soundtrack for the upcoming boxing flick "Southpaw," but said he isn't working on a new solo album just yet. "If I end up starting to record for another album, I want to make sure I approach it the right way," he said.
Looking forward to that. Until then, we'll just have to wait on the "Southpaw" soundtrack, which is slated for release, along with the movie, on July 24.
