Eminem appeared on a public access channel in Monroe, Michigan as a guest of comedian Stephen Colbert’s on Monday (June 29), according to The Huffington Post.
Colbert asks the rapper, who appears under his birth name Marshall Mathers, to describe his Rap style.
“Are you one of the slow-talking rappers or one of the fast-talking rappers?” Colbert asks.
“I can be both I guess,” Mathers says.
“What kind of Rap do you do?” Colbert continues. “Are you sort of sing-songey Rap like Bone thugs-n-harmony or are you more like street like Will Smith?”
“I like Bone-thugs and I like Will Smith,” the rapper says, saying his personal style is in the middle of the two.
“Are you more political or are you more booty rhymes?” Colbert asks.
“In the middle,” Mathers says.
“Right in the middle of the booty?”
“Right in the crack probably.”
“Steamy, that’s a steamy place to have your career,” Colbert responds.
“Right, steamy place to be,” Eminem says.
Later in the interview, Colbert asks Slim Shady about his work on the forthcoming movie Southpaw. Eminem executively-produced the soundtrack and raps the song “Phenomenal.”
“If I go to these lengths and these extremes and however, if I keep trying, my perseverance is gonna turn me into something other than human, an animal,” he says of the song’s message.
