Eminem is now considered an icon in the world of rap music, but there was one a time when he was just trying to make a name for himself.
Along the way Em got to meet his heroes, and he recently sat down to talk to LL Cool J for his Rock The Bells Radio show on SiriusXM which is set to air on September 1.
Eminem shared the story of the first time he met LL Cool J in a Foot Locker, and he noted that LL quoted lyrics from one of his songs.
“And the next thing you know, I’m in Foot Locker with Kirdis Tucker and she’s getting outfits for the ‘Just Don’t Give a Fuck’ video, and I see you,” Em continued to LL. “I’m like, ‘Yo, he’s in here by himself.’ I was buggin’ the fuck out… You quoted a lyric back to me. You said, ‘Yo, how can I be white / I don’t even exist.’ You quoting that lyric back to me, was like, I think I s**t myself.”
