Eminem didn’t invent ill rhyming or the ill lower class mentality, however, he had lived it, seen it, done it, and was now speaking on it for the world to hear. He was not a bad guy. Everything he wrote, rapped or spoke had been in the mix, in one form or another. During the period of these interviews, Eminem’s life was racing one-hundred million miles an hour yet he managed to maintain a grip on reality by sticking with the crew he came up.
These interviews deliver a raw twenty-six-year-old Eminem, the real Eminem as an angry young man eager to prove himself to the world and give them the middle-finger at the same time. These interviews deliver an Eminem solely concerned with representing himself, his family, and those he came up with in his time of need. These interviews deliver an Eminem who proudly declared he lived for the day.
The second part of the book features an exclusive 2001 interview with D12. It provides a first-hand look into the “Just Don’t Give A F**k” mindset of the crew and choice background information on Eminem in the midst of becoming an international phenomenon.
