Lately HBO biographical series published a video on the internet where Dr.Dre tell the story of meeting a rapper with infinite potential Eminem!
Here’s what he says:
Well, I first heard Eminem’s music at Jimmy Iovine’s house. He just happened to have gotten Eminem’s tape maybe a couple of days before. He actually got it from an intern that used to work at Interscope. Eminem popped it in and then I heard it. And I thought it was incredible.At this time, I had no idea he was a white guy. I didn’t find that out until a few days later.
And I was just like ‘What the f*** is this? I really need to meet this guy.’
The first thing that we did was ‘My Name Is’.
I had already prepared a sample that I thought he would sound great on.
Immediately after I put it on he just went ‘Hi, my name is’…
When I heard he was going to start his own label, I thought it was an amazing idea.
I was excited to see what they were going to be able to do with it.
Although one of the most famous rappers nowadays Marshall Mathers or as everyone calls him: Eminem.
His past is filled with hardships one after another, with determination he moved forward towards the road to success.
But he didn’t achieve that by himself.
Before “The Slim Shady LP” he wasn’t a famous rap artist, well in his neighborhood he was well known but no more than that.
He created ‘Infinite’ his first rap album nut it didn’t become really famous.
After that he met Dr.Dre which helped him in his road to success, together the made the slim shady LP making our rapper really famous.
After that as we all know they became best friend and have many collaboration together like: “Forgot About Dre”, “Like Toy Soldiers” etc.
