Jay-Z's Eminem career fear
Jay-Z would not like Eminem's career.
The 'Empire State of Mind' rapper, who is married to pop star Beyonce, has revealed he wouldn't like the success Eminem had in the past.
He said: "I never even told him this, but I remember that Eminem came into the studio when we made 'Moment of Clarity', which he produced on 'The Black Album'.
"So here's Eminem. It's 2003, I think 'The Eminem Show' had come out, and he was, like, the biggest rapper in the world - he sold, like, 20 million records worldwide.
"But when he came into the studio, I remember I hugged him and I could feel that he had on a bulletproof vest. I couldn't imagine being that successful. I mean, he's a guy who loves rap and wanted to be successful his whole career. Then he finally gets it, and there's this dark cloud over him."
Jay-Z - otherwise known as Shawn Corey Carter - also defended Kanye West for his invasion of the stage at the MTV VMA awards during Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for 'Video of the Year' in 2009.
He told Interview magazine: "He believed that Beyonce's 'Single Ladies' was a better video. I believed that. I think a lot of people believed that."Posted on 15 Jan 2010 07:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
