NEWS: Eminem Speaks On Drugs, The Death Of Proof & Praises T.I. & Lil Wayne On New XXL Cover

Get ready to enter the Em Zone. Back from a three-year hiatus, Eminem is set to grace two XXL covers for the magazine’s June issue on stands May 5, two weeks before Em’s fifth solo album, Relapse, hits stores May 19.

A special collector’s edition, the issue showcases Eminem posing as Marvel Comics’ notorious vigilante The Punisher. In addition to the cover story written by XXL Editor-in-Chief Datwon Thomas, the issue’s entire feature well is dedicated to Marshall Mathers and documents his illustrious career. The magazine also includes an exclusive collaboration between XXL, Shady and Marvel Comics: a special edition Punisher comic book entitled Eminem/Punisher: Kill You starring Eminem and created by Marvel Comics. Part 2 of the comic will be made available on www.marvel.com/eminem starting May 5.-Bruce Moses

Check below for choice quotes from the June cover story with Eminem and an exclusive first look of Slim Shady as The Punisher. And stay tuned for more Eminem with XXL.

On His Drug Addiction

“I wasn’t ready mentally. I wasn’t ready to give up the drugs. I didn’t really think I had a problem. Basically, I went in, and I came out. I relapsed, and I spent the next three years struggling with it. Also, at that time, I felt like I wanted to pull back, because my drug problem had got so bad. I felt like, Maybe if I take a break, maybe this will help. I started to get into the producer role more… I can still be out there with my music, like with the Re-Up album, but I don’t have to be in the spotlight the whole time.”

On Proof’s Death

“Everyone felt his loss, from his kids, to his wife, to everyone. But, for some reason, in hindsight, the way I felt was almost like it happened to just me… Maybe at the time I was a little bit selfish with it. I think it kind of hit me so hard. It just blindsided me. I just went into such a dark place that, with everything, the drugs, my thoughts, everything. And the more drugs I consumed, and it was all depressants I was taking, the more depressed I became, the more self-loathing I became… By the way, I’m just now at the point where I’m better talking about it. It took me so long to get out of that place where I couldn’t even speak about it without crying or wanting to cry… Proof was the anchor. He was everything to D12. And not just the group-for me, personally, he was everything.”

On T.I., Lil Wayne & Hip-Hop

“I stayed up on the music, and obviously I watch TV and saw what was going on. And without naming any names, it just felt like hip-hop was going downhill. And it seemed like kinda fast. You know, in them three years, it was like everybody just cares about the hook and the beat; nobody really cares about substance. But with this new T.I. album, with this new Lil Wayne album of recent, it seems like things are looking a lot better now. You can appreciate Lil Wayne using different words to rhyme and actually rhyming words that you know. Or T.I., where you hear shit and you’re like Whoa, ah, I wish I would have thought of that! You know what I mean? Or you hear all the compound-syllable rhyming and all that. It just seems like now the craft is getting cared about more.”

        • alex

          what the fucks wrong with ko. infinite wasnt that good. even em said that. he started becoming a genius when he released the slim shady ep which transformed into the slim shady LP. then he created the marshall mathers lp then the eminem show then encore. i actully like the relapse .fuck critics

      • Sensy

        u dont make sense idiot. you liked his infinite album but u never liked his shit??

        thats chilll but everyone on here who is hating at all even one bit just has problems with their own life and who they are but yeea i think its cool Em is where he is today…

        he made it through some tough shit n he just wants to share it with people.. i respect that

        plus i like a couple of his new shits… beautiful is real.

    • KAM

      He’s back, to bring hip hop back? Damn this commercial sh** got people acting stupid. No real rapper will dress up like a woman in his videos or act stupid. Keep your commercial hip hop. Long live Pimp C, Geto Boys, Street Military.

      • KLETEWOOD

        @ Kam…What are you looking for in a “real rapper”? Sounds like your from the south.

        How stupid would Em look if he had a grill in his mouth… with 10 chains on his neck…while driving his slab…gripping wood grain on syrup.

        • KAM

          @Kletewood. I’ll tell you this, real g’s rather be riding slab than dress like a woman. Just cause the boy sold records that doen’t make him real, tough, the baddest s.o.b on the planet. Elton John has sol millions and he still gay!

        • Stop Buggin’

          Pause. “Real G’s” don’t exist in rap. I don’t care what region they rep. Or their dumb asses got locked up for snitchin’ on themselves on record. Wake up people! It’s ENTERRTAINMENT. Always has been, always will be.

      • thekngizback

        real rapper? slap yourself. it takes a real rapper to wear a dress and still get respected. and wtf? pimp c? r.i.p and all but your definition of a real rapper is someone who overdoses on cough syrup? wow. you don’t deserve to listen to rap, you’re too much of a moron.

  • DV8

    I can see what he is saying about T.I.’s music but not Wayne. Wayne has corny lyrics that the masses are amazed with for some reason.

    I though he would be Batman as much as he likes to mention the Bat signal all the damn time.

    • http://xxlmag.com $hawty Reg

      @ DV8

  • WESTCOAST

    EM’S BACK AND READY TO DESTROY EVERYTHING IN HIS PATH…

    • mike

      Amen. Leave no corny rapper spared. For that matter he should also get at those whom he is allied with and tell em to step their game up for christ sake!

  • render

    that shit hes been thru with proof is why I still have hope for this album despite the unimpressive crack a bottle/we made you bullshit

    Real pain makes real music

    the fuck is up with the punisher shit tho?

    • Penelope Rodriguez

      That’s what I’m saying about the punisher thing. It’s a bit too much, I think. But it’s whatever.

    This is the kind of shit that seperates rappers/singers from actual artists. Real life experiences that are not easily escapable. Death, drugs, etc.

    Just him baring his soul in those minor excerpts is enough to make me buy the album. Like, I’m curious to know what he’s been going through these last few years. One doesn’t just sit on top of the world & suddenly disappear for no reason.

    No wonder he’s not firing shots @ Roth, he’s been living adult life dealing with grown up problems. Hopefully the album(s) will reflect that.

      Real talk.

      This dude cried for his homie. Went into the foxhole and marinated.

      He relapsed and went back to his old style. I just know it. He has a new story to tell!

      What’s up Tony?

      I absolutely co-sign. DeShaun “Proof” Holton was a dear friend of mine that I’ve known since 4th grade. His death damn near destroyed me and everyone else in Detroit… and world-wide, matter-of-fact. I cried – and it takes a whole LOT to make a dude like me cry. I will be first in line to cop Em’s CD.

      It’ll be some grown man music, for real. Believe it!

    If ‘stanky Leg’ or ‘Ricky Bobby’ doesn’t prove that, I don’t know what more you need. . .Wayne catches alot of hate, but you cant deny his talent, nor T.I. I hope he inspires more artist to take time making MUSIC rather than DANCES!

    I used to like Eminem’s freestyle’s in the Stretch Armstrong show; but based on the first single he just continues his downward spiral qualitywise with mentioning everyone in the National Enquirer.

    Plus the cover looks like a Nazi poster and Marshall still has no chin.

    Yeah this is good eminem talking about hip hop going downhill, true… But what he said about Lil Wayne and T.I. is WRONG!

    They are not even hip hop! They are pop for christ sakes. Go listen to rappers like Big L, AZ, Nas, KRS-One, Ice Cube, Xzibit. Even underground rappers like Immortal Technique, Esoteric, Copywrite, Murs… Wayne and T.I is complete joke. Auto-tune midget and douche who talks about “you can have whatever you like”

      Mutada copping the XXL mag because he wants to hear (read) what the man got to say, just like I do. I’m a little bit biased since I’m from Detroit (and I know Proof), but I want to know what’s on the man’s mind.

      I skipped through the pics real quick in order to get to the comments. Those are interesting too.

      I’ve never met Mutada in person, but I can guarantee you that he ain’t no pimple-faced 12 year old who’s a blind fan of “Feminem” as you so eloquently described my fellow Detroiter, Marshall Mathers.

    The article looks good. I’m just happy to see a halfway decent MC on the cover, who has consistantly put out great material and a A CLASSIC ALBUM (2nd album).

    As for the picture, I’m a fan of comic book, super hero type stuff so that what I thought looked cool. Its also diffrent than the usual, him with a jason mask or whatever.

    What up folks, you still had a subscription to XXL ? lol j/k Peace

  • RWord

    Notice that Em say the genre was downhill, and this was when 50cent was at his pike. And also notice the Em said TI and Lil Wayne (not 50cent) help bring it back…LOL!

    50cent is a clown and the cancers of hiphop. He is the main reason hiphop was going down hill. He wack lyrics and “beef to make sell” attitude help coke hiphop. Em knows this (even thought that his artist) and that why he said TI and Lil Wayne (nt 50).

    • jburg

      Its at his “peak” dude!! And I think you are digging a little too deep. 50 hasn’t put out an album in bout a year and a half or so. TI and Wayne came out way after Curtis and 50′s PEAK was during The Massacre days. I wouldn’t say 50 is a cancer. Soulja Boy is a cancer. If anything 50 is keeping it interesting. wether you like him or not the man is ENTERTAINING. And people still listen when he speaks. Regardless if his records sell or not they get played. And tell me one sensible verse from Soulja Boy, or half of these clown ass ring tone rappers out today!! Don’t worry I’ll wait…………………….

    for everyone who doesnt understand this, Em was not saying that Lil Wayne was a lyricist or even a good rapper. look at what he really says: “You can appreciate Lil Wayne using different words to rhyme and actually rhyming words that you know.” What I interpret that to mean is “he’s better than most people, but he still sucks ass.” that’s a statement about lil wayne that i can live with.

    The thing I love bout Em is how he’s grown up and doesn’t get involved in Curtis’ beefs anymore. I really think its time for Dre and Em to focus on other artists in their label instead of 50 Cent. I mean you don’t want to lose other artist like they lost Hitman, Game, Stat Quo, and Obie Trice.

    queue Mary J. Blige’s “My Life” and countless other classics. This album will probably be the first one of Em’s that I get on release day without even hearing a single.

    Mad respect for Em for his own growth and genuine love for his artform.

    Can’t wait for the Royce collab album either. With those two back on the scene, the rest of the game better be on notice!

  • ff1one@yahoo.com

    lol em is smart because he knows the south is running the game. Its not about lyrics anymore, so ya em might be able to beat alot of emcees in a battle, but tht dude is trying ot make money. 50 good with that viatiam water, but if they don’t make it musically a lot of the other offers will stop. So he mentioned ti and wayne in my opinion so he doesn’t get frozen out.

    I was never a huge em fan because i grew up during the golden era of rap, and its many dudes that rhyme just as good as em but don’t get as much praise. Both of his first singles are wack; in fact, his last couple of singles were wack.

    Em is trying to make a radio hit with a hook and catchy beat, but it don’t go over right. I suggest he stays in his lane and his faithful fans will buy his music. Plus, music needs him to not try and get t pain or a catchy beat.

    The whole point of a Em cover (check the 3 or 4 XXL or Sauce covers he has had) is to attract your attention.

    Obviously for those that didn’t catch the “point” of the Punisher getup was the quote “Vengence is EMINEM”

    I am not a Punisher follower but I know that must be a saying or play on words on the cover ties “MINE” to his name…

    And since EM/50 did the Gatman/Robin deal, same with Dre, then a Superhero (innocent way to justify holding weapons)isn’t out of the normal.

    All the same blog design is important, and here’s how not cool, but even with fiziologichskoy terms agreeable to read text on a white background, surrounded by a pleasant path. Of course, the brightness is needed, but that person comes to a site not in order to spend the 5 seconds, since he wants to read something – someone new, who comments on blogs to view. I too sometimes because of comments back. to look to what the people there draw some. There are so develop the theme that the sheet obtained. Swing. Sorry. yet.

    The price of entertainment has never affected eminem, Adam you gotta realise with eminem he could care less of popularity when it comes to his brothers. Family to business entirely changes the perspective cuz he would shit on them regardless just like anyone who strikes at your family. you gonna sit idle by or you gonna defend your family? thats a basic eminem principle especially after proof-R.I.P
