The other day Eminem sat down with Sway for a lengthy interview, in which he revealed that the release of Kamikaze was inspired by the lukewarm receptions of its predecessors Revival, 2004’s Encore and 2009’s Relapse. He also began to speak on the rifts with both Joe Budden and Machine Gun Kelly, but Part 1 ended before he really got into it.
Part two has now been released, where Slim explains where the discord comes from. Naturally, Em felt slighted by Joe’s frequent criticisms of his music while he was signed to and being helped by Shady Records as a member of Slaughterhouse. He also divulges a bit on why Glass House never released.
(As a quasi-hilarious aside, I remember years ago when some random enterprising type re-created Slaughterhouse’s self-titled album and removed Joe from every part of it, including the album cover.)
Eminem also goes into detail about his problems with MGK, which stemmed from his 2012 tweets about Em’s daughter Hallie. Keep in mind… when MGK wrote this tweet about Hallie, she was 16 and he was 22. That right there, to me, is more than enough for any father to snap. But, I digress.
Either way, watch the whole thing below.
