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

Producer Emile Haynie talks to The FADER about being in the studio with Eminem -- after Proof gave him a shot:
"A friend of mine got a job as the assistant to the assistant tour manager for D12. I was a huge Eminem fan at the time. Proof came bopping off the bus, so I gave him a CD."
(Within 24 hours, Haynie would be meeting Eminem)
"I was like a fly on the wall. I learned a lot watching [Eminem]. I come from New York-era hip-hop, where you just make a beat and nothing really changes.
But Em, coming from that school of Dr Dre, had musicians and made *songs*."
