Eminem covers Rolling Stone Magazine

Eminem
We are half way through the BBC Radio 1 Zane Lowe four part interview, and it is so good to have Eminiem back on the Hip-Hop scene, stronger than ever as an artist, lyricist, and rapper. I'm in love all over again. I love Eminem. Marshall Mathers covers the latest issue of Rolling Stone Magazine, which hits stores in 2 days, this Friday. Check out my favourite excerpts from the exclusive interview.

On hip-hop: 'Hip-hop saved my life, man. It’s the only thing I’ve ever been even decent at. I don’t know how to do anything else. I think they have a word for that—what do they call it? Idiot savant?'
 
On Tupac and Biggie: 'Being a student of hip-hop in general, you take technical aspects from places. You may take a rhyme pattern or flow from Big Daddy Kane or Kool G Rap. But then you go to Tupac, and he made songs. His fucking songs felt like something—’Holy shit! I want to fucking punch someone in the face when I put this CD in.’ Biggie told stories. I wanted to do all that shit.'
