Favorite Song: "I would say 'Stan.' I know it's cliché but the way he put it together, the structure and concept, it reminded me of 'One Love' and the whole letter thing. He definitely took a Nas concept and built it a little bit bigger."
Favorite Album: "The Slim Shady LP because he was new and fresh. This dude is rapping in plain English but he has complex rhymes and he's wacky. 'Just The Two of Us' is another crazy song. He brought the elements together really well. He gave us his demo so I heard a couple of the demo songs on there, so it's kinda of cool to see him go from that."
Eminem's first big show, he opened for us. This is in '96 or something in Detroit. The promoter is like 'We got this kid and he's a big fan. Is it cool if he hops on?' and he gave us his demo.
Favorite Moment: "Eminem's first big show, he opened for us. This is in '96 or something in Detroit. The promoter is like 'We got this kid and he's a big fan. Is it cool if he hops on?' and he gave us his demo. He was super humble and super cool. He was about to move to Cali and go to this battle and shit. To see him go from there to Eminem—you know what I'm saying? That's why I say The Slim Shady LP. I heard it in the rough, I saw the raw form, and then to see it go to where it went—I mean he exploded immediately.
"He was definitely hella humble and hella skilled—you could tell even at the show. Then the next time I see him-he's signed to Aftermath. Like 'Oh that's that guy!' He's a big Hieroglyphics fan, like if you watch 8 Mile he's got a Hiero sticker in his studio. Em and Proof were big fans of us, Proof's little brother said they used to sit, take our patterns, and go back and forth. All of D12 is good people."
