Eminem Details Almost Dissing Lil Wayne & Kanye West

When Eminem crafted "Talkin' 2 Myself," the Michigan emcee says he analyzed the Rap scene and some of his own work at the time. 

"I felt so bad about myself and the music that I was creating, that I felt like I started to turn into a hater," Eminem said during a recent interview with Los Angeles radio station Power 106. "And it wasn’t just—you know, singling Kanye [West] and [Lil] Wayne out at that time period. I mean they were the ones who were the killing it the most to me. And it hurt. I’d pop the CD in and be like, ‘Fuck man, I’m not doing this no more.’ I felt like I came very close to like, for me it would have been career suicide because I felt like, ‘I should make a song just dissing everybody who's doing in it the game right now.'" 

"Talkin' 2 Myself" features the following lyrics. 

I almost made a song dissing Lil Wayne
It's like I was jealous of him 'cause of the attention he was gettin'
I felt horrible about myself, he was spittin'
And I wasn't, anyone who was buzzin' back then could'a got it
Almost went at Kanye too, God it
Feels like I'm going psychotic, thank God that I didn't do it
I'da had my ass handed to me and I knew it

    Eminem has always been a bleeding heart. for the most part his ability to so openly talk about his emotions are what made his career. while i was never a fan of his badmouthing his mom and baby mom, he was (as Charlemagne would put it) living his truth. him speaking about almost beefing with someone is the same thing. if hiphop is about keeping it real than i guess that's what he's doing

    Never before would you hear Eminem talk about almost dissing somebody, let alone make a song about almost dissing someone. And his reason for it is some faggot emo psycho therapy bull shit. Is this a new genre hes creating, the back-track-beef rap where you apologize before even dissing somebody?
