Eminem gives in depth interview with BBC Radio’s, Zane Lowe. In the interview Eminem tells about his career and personal life.
Eminem chats about his rap flow, rap influences, respect from his peers, goals and the next generation of rappers.
My number one goal getting into hip hop would be just to get the respect from other MC’s.
The rapper speaks on his past drug addiction, rehab, relapse and being introduced to the drug Ambien.
When I came out of rehab I was clean for three weeks total. I only stayed in rehab for two weeks because when I went to rehab it felt like everyone else was ready for me to go but I wasn’t ready myself.
Eminem speaks on respect, his childhood, his passion for metaphors and the English language.
I just felt like I want to have all these words at my disposal in my vocabulary at all times whenever I needed to pull them out.
Eminem chats about being back in the spotlight, early studio sessions, past drug addiction and sobriety.
The rest of the year I am going to focus on putting out Relapse 2 and go back and help Dre with whatever he needs for his record input or whatever and make sure 50’s album comes out right.
The rapper speaks about his influences, doing more movies and changing his direction toward writing.
I love music so much this is my passion, this is what I want to do. Not saying that I won’t do a movie ever again but this is me.

It’s not easy being me, it gets hard a lot which doesn’t really make a difference. Sometimes it is, sometimes it has its benefits, dirty hores being thrown at you, at will.
Eminem chats about making his big break into the music industry, getting a buzzclip, negative interviews, and lyrical style.
I was out to impress Dr. Dre to show him what I can do. When I saw Dre nodding his head and laughing at some of the things I was saying and what not I was like, I am in…I made it.
