Legendary Detroit rapper Eminem recently joined Kxng Crooked for his first interview since dropping his surprise 11th studio album, Music To Be Murdered By. On Crook’s Corner, the two discussed a range of topics including the album, Em’s writing and rhyming style, the state of rap, as well as Lord Jamar’s recent comments about how the Detroit MC is a “guest” of hip-hop.

Speaking on Jamar’s comments without referencing his name, Eminem shared “I don’t know if I’ve got a chance to say this yet, but the funny sh(t is with the whole beef with a certain person, I never said I wasn’t a guest.” He then explained how he sees place within the hip-hop industry. “I’m absolutely a guest. I never said I wasn’t. And I never said I was king of anything. I never want to be the king of hip-hop.” You can listen to Slim’s comments around the 21-minute market via the video above.

Jamar — who Eminem dissed on his recent album with the track “I Will” — took to Twitter to respond to Em’s comments. “I guess his EGO wouldn’t allow him to say ‘Lord Jamar was right the whole time, & I was buggin for coming at him the way I did…my bad…I am a guest in the house of Hip Hop.’”


Atop of addressing the comments, Eminem and Kxng Crooked also discussed a wide range of topics including Slim’s love for rhyming in syllables, his creative process, Music To Be Murdered By, the state of hip-hop, and more. You can watch the entire interview above.

For more related news, Eminem set a world record with his third verse on “Godzilla.”
