Denzel Washington revealed his favorite rappers during a recent reddit AMA [Ask Me Anything] session. 

Eminem, yes, and I like Nas, and Jay-Z,” he replied.

Going beyond this, Washington also revealed the reason for his appreciation for Em and Nas.

“Eminem and NAS are real wordsmiths,” he wrote. “So yes, I’m DEFINITELY an Eminem fan.”

Washington continued with his commentary on Eminem, asking a question about Slim Shady’s whereabouts. 

“Where’s he been?” he asks. “Where you been Eminem?”

Eminem has been touring as part of The Monster Tour with Rihanna this year, but he’s also landed a song, “Guts Over Fear” on the trailer for Denzel Washington’s film, The Equalizer.

Eminem has also been breaking records. He was recently entered into the Guinness World Records for having the most words in a hit single.
