  • Bit about Em in Rollin' With Dre book

    dunno if this has been posted before but i thought it was somewhat interesting and basically fits with where em/shady records is at right now:

    Nowadays it seems like the one-time poor kid's emotions are getting the better of him. He's isolated in Detroit, even from his own crew. For the longest time, one of the cats in D-12 had a sick child and no insurance and there's nothing he could do about it, in part because the man who makes the world even give a fuck about D-12 is cut off from the world. Now, Em's a grown man and all, but I put a lot of the responibility for this phase of the dude's struggle on his management team. In the decade since he recorded SSLP, Slim Shady hasn't done a whole lot, if you think about it. It's like, the first five years were action packed. Albums, movies, touring like a demon and helping develop 50 Cent. But recently? He mostly just hangs out like Bruce Wayne, a ghostly king of a genuflecting Detroit.

    Paul Rosenberg and people who run Shady Records have only focused on the one main guy, and when he's done there's no foundation for more. When Dre signed homeboy I thought it would be the making of a movement. ... My man is talented as fuck. It's unlikely he'll ever recapture past MC glories though. Think about it: What more can he really say? Even people who aren't even into rap know more about this ***** than they do their next-door neightbour. We've heard it all already. Unless he actually gets up and does something that doesn't involve his daughter or cashing a paycheck. Em is deep in the shit. And it didn't help that the guy he'd turned into almost as big a star as him, 50 Cent, was embroiled in epic beef with the guy he was supposed to be giving a leg up. These are things that make artists quit rapping and move over to producing much sooner than their talents suggest they might.

      it's ok, nothing special. very short and kind of glosses over lots of stuff i was hoping there would be detail on. actually it's not really ok when i think about it, waste of money really. i think the few scans of it i''d seen over at the dubcnn boards had everything i wanted to know, except the very brief stuff on em.

            i didn't really get that part. i think it was implying that for whatever reason he couldn't help, not that he flat out didn't.

                ^ fuck knows. that bit is pretty dodgy, like it can be taken really badly as in, em's an asshole who didn't help a sick a child when he could but i dont think that's what he was getting at. he praises em throughout the book and to suddenly drop that lil nugget seems out of place. i dont know what he was getting at though.

                  I hope the part about the child is not true...
                  "And it didn't help that the guy he'd turned into almost as big a star as him, 50 Cent, was embroiled in epic beef with the guy he was supposed to be giving a leg up."
                  ????
                  50's only "epic beef" was Ja Rule and I don't see how he or Eminem were supposed to be giving him a leg up.

                    thats fucked up if Em didnt help out with the health insurance. Em seemed to get rich and famous and lose his mind. What other grown man with kids is enfatuated with farting noses?

                      Well, eminem does pay for his mom's shit and we know his story there....

                      i'm sure there's some misinterpretation, from what Proof used to say, dollars didn't mean shit between the two and Eminem helped him whenever.

                        reread the article guys.. what the guy was saying is the d12 rapper couldn't make money from rapping because the guy who gets d12 all the money (eminem) wasn't there to make music with them... now how does a d12 member, not have insurance, i mean come on... i'm pretty sure d12 ain't poor or nothing...
