Eminem Says Dissing Lil Wayne ‘Would Have Been Career Suicide’ — Say What!
In the upcoming issue of Spin magazine, Eminem discusses his new song “Talkin to Myself,” on which he says that at the height of his drug addiction he considered releasing a Lil Wayne/Kanye West diss song. “I thought, ‘Man, I can do that s–t. He ain’t that dope,'” Em explained. “I’m hearing this dude say some clever, witty s–t and I’m not doing it, so I feel f–ked up…It would have been career suicide…they would have f–kin’ murdered me.” Not sure about that.

Beanie Sigel is back with a new album, and he brought some of his friends from the block with him. “It’s bananas…you’ve got [a] joint with Travis Barker [called] ‘Just Chill,’ a joint with Trey Songz..I basically went back to the block with [this album]. I mean, I ain’t never leave the block, but I just started hanging more and more in depth with the young boys and put myself in situations where I knew I shouldn’t have been at, hanging at those spots where they hang at. And that’s where the music come from: the n—as that are on the black still grinding.” Pretty confused right now. Travis Barker is on the block with the young boys, though? [HipHopDX]
