Iggy Azalea on Losing to Eminem

Iggy Azalea on losing to Eminem for Best Rap Album at The Grammy's last month
"I did not want to win that award. My speech would have been like, 'Fuck this! I don't want it! Take it!'... I found it to be kind of ironic. It was because I'm white, therefore I'm appropriating culture. But then Eminem won it - who's white and won it many times - and they didn't seem to say anything about that."

Detroit rapper Esham disses Eminem

Detroit underground legend Esham (founder of the "acid rap" sub genre) disses Eminem
"I am tired of Eminem. I just want him to keep it real and quit being a bitch. He fuckin' sold a lotta people out in the city, man. He needs to stop disrespecting the city and making people hate Detroit even more. That's what that was about. Don't even say shit about Detroit. With the ‘Detroit Vs. Everybody’ don't say Detroit vs. everybody… you don’t help nobody in the city,” Esham says. “I don’t give a fuck. I will say that. You got a radio station and nobody gets played on your station? Come on, B. Get the fuck outta here. You got 50 hundred million dollars and you ain't doing shit. Do something for the schools, anything, I don't wanna hear that shit. If you say something about Detroit, I'm gonna say something about you. Let somebody say something to me. I ain't gonna say shit. I ain't lyin' on that muthafucka."

Kid Rock talks to Rolling Stone about Eminem

Kid Rock talks to Rolling Stone about hanging out with Eminem and Bob Seger:
"Em's just sitting in the corner — me, Em and Bob — and they're trying to relate, but they're both a little kooky... Eminem's funny as shit, man. He's a great father, he's funny, he's talented out his ass, but you know, obviously, my social skills are much more developed."
Kid Rock also compares golfer Tiger Woods to Eminem:
"Nice kid. A little bit of an Eminem and Axl Rose syndrome. Very reclusive, literal, and sometimes you feel a little bad for them. Sometimes they think the world's against them. You gotta loosen up, man! People are gonna talk shit. You just gotta enjoy it!"

Knaye west mentions Eminem

Kanye West mentions Eminem in his new interview with Complex, while talking about major fashion designers' perception of him:
"They know the concept of celebrity designer is so far out the window.
I feel like I’m Eminem, you know? You don’t think “white rapper.” You just think Eminem. You don’t think celebrity designer, straight designer, black designer, all these types of things that kind of held me back conceptually in being accepted as a designer."

Emile Haynie talks about being in the studio with Eminem
