Is Eminem ready to put down the mic and get back behind the cameras? Tomorrow during an exciting RapFix Live episode Eminem touches on not just his and partner Royce Da 5′ 9″ ’s Bad Meets Evil EP, Hell: The Sequel but Shady also recalls advice he received from West Coast O.G. Ice Cube during the early stages of his acting career.
“I think Ice Cube said this one time; I think I heard him say this one time,” Em told Sway during their “RapFix Live” interview, which will stream on MTV.com on Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET. “If you can rap, if you can perform to the camera for singing and videos, it should be a pretty, fairly natural transition.”
“I felt like having heard him say that was like, ’Oh, this may be fairly easy’ — and it wasn’t.”
“It’s a whole different thing, because you may be used to performing to the camera, but it’s a whole different ball game when the music is off and you have lines that you need to say” Em continued. “It takes a minute to get used to.”
Though there is no official word on when Eminem will return to the big screen in a starring role, the rapper has partnered up with fellow Detroit MC Royce Da 5’9″ for their upcoming Bad Meets Evil EP, Hell: The Sequel.
Tune in to “RapFix Live” on Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET, when Eminem and Royce sit with Sway to talk about the making of the EP, the future of Shady Records and Eminem’s rap inspiration.
The countdown begins … now!
