Eminem once sent Elton John two diamond-encrusted cock rings.
Their latest interaction was more conventional; John interviewed Shady for Interview magazine.
During their chat, Em discusses Dre, his sobriety (nine years) and who he's been listening to these days.
JOHN: Do you listen to a lot of current hip-hop?
EMINEM: I listen to pretty much everything that comes out.
JOHN: Who do you think is doing great stuff at the moment?
EMINEM: J. Cole. Travis Scott. Kendrick is great. My friend Royce da 5’9″ is incredible. Joyner Lucas is really good. Tech N9ne, too.
He also spoke out about why he went after Donald Trump in his famous BET Cypher.
It was about having the right to stand up to oppression. I mean, that’s exactly what the people in the military and the people who have given their lives for this country have fought for—for everybody to have a voice and to protest injustices and speak out against shit that’s wrong. We’re not trying to disrespect the military, we’re not trying to disrespect the flag, we’re not trying to disrespect our country. But shit is going on that we want to make you aware of. We have a president who does not care about everybody in our country; he is not the president for all of us, he is the president for some of us. He knows what he’s doing.
What do you think of Em's favorite artists? And what about this sober, political Shady ...
His ninth album Revival drops next Friday, December 15.
