Eminem was the guest of honor on Big Boy’s Neighborhood on LA’s Power 106 this morning to chop it up. Two interesting things came out of the interview. The first is when Eminem was asked what would he do if he wasn’t making music. Em explains that music is his life and true passion, “Actually I am the type of person that does have to do music, this is my passion, this is what I’m passionate about.”

The second part, Slim Shady shares the story behind “Talkin’ 2 Myself” off Recovery, where he mentions wanting to diss Kanye West and Lil Wayne. “Anything that was hot at that moment, or anybody who was really killing shit at that moment, I felt so bad about myself and the music that I was creating, that I felt like I started to turn into a hater and it wasn’t just singling Kanye and Wayne out at that time period.” He continues to say that he felt like he close to doing it “I came very close, for me it would of been career suicide.”
