“I Think I Sh*t Myself”: Eminem Reflects On His First Time Meeting Hip-Hop Icons Like LL Cool J And Dr. Dre

blogged by @lovelikejhoney

Detroit rapper #Eminem reminisces on his early rap career and talks about his rise to fame in an upcoming interview with hip-hop icon, #LLCoolJ.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The interview will appear on a monthly program, hosted by LL Cool J and DJ Z-Trip. Each show will welcome hip-hop artists to reflect on their careers “and the songs that meant the most to them.”

Eminem spoke about his partnership with producer and music mogul, #DrDre. The two rappers, who met nearly twenty years ago, have gone on to create some of hip-hop’s biggest records to date.

At the time they met, Em was traveling heavily promoting his new EP, “The Slim Shady.”

“The Slim Shady EP that we pressed up starting actually moving some decent amount of units. You know, it was like a thousand, two thousand,” the “Lose Yourself” rapper told LL. “We had a guy in Vegas—they had guy that wanted to buy 5,000 of them. So we were like, ‘Oh shit!’ So, we go to Vegas, we start running around putting the shit on consignment at different stores and stuff. I come back to the hotel just from doing that and (producer) Marky Bass was like, ‘Man, we got a call from some doctor. He wants to meet with you.’ So I’m like, ‘Don’t f*ck with me. Don’t f*ck with me. Do not f*ck with me.’”

Em continued: “Because I remember I was in the car with these two chicks right before I went out to Vegas to sell the tapes […] and these two chicks in the car were playing ‘Phone Tap.’ I was like, ‘Yo, if I could just get with Dre, oh my god.’ Literally a week later, we got a meeting with Dre when we go out there. And that was it.”

Shortly after his meeting with Dre, Em ran into another hip-hop heavyweight: LL Cool J.

“And the next thing you know, I’m in Foot Locker with Kirdis Tucker and she’s getting outfits for the ‘Just Don’t Give A Fuck’ video, and I see you (LL Cool J),” Eminem recalled. “I’m like, ‘Yo, he’s in here by himself.’ I was buggin’ the fuck out. You quoted a lyric back to me. You said, ‘Yo, how can I be white/I don’t even exist.’ You quoting that lyric back to me, was like, I think I shit myself.”

The Real Slim Shady will be the first guest on the new show titled “The Influence of Hip-Hop—which will premiere Sept. 1 on LL Cool J’s Rock the Bells Radio show on SiriusXM.
