There are rumors going around that you had been dropped from Shady Records. You recently put out a statement saying that wasn't true, do you know where these rumors came from?
yeah,some lame-o's! L7 squarez, who don't exist to anyone of importance, no matter what…
It's a small group of girlymen, that wanted my attention, and they jus put me bacc in the public eye, appreciate it bruh… The rumor itself was, laughable at best. Considering, I'm the only 1 of us in the Cracc a bottle video, come on bro, King Mathers jus dropped the illest Lp in 4 years. It's my time to fully surface in the mainstream market. There is no reason to go anywhere,ever. We all have to wait our turn for succession. And in the meantime, build up the buzz and awareness of the Shady Records camp, and each artist individually. I feel that, with no question, I have done that, and that errbody knows where my loyalty is and how important that is 2 me. Marshall,Dart, Paul, Tracy, and Marc found me, signed me, took me in, and gave me a Capo seat in this organization, and gave me hope for a future, I thought would've met demisal, by now, there is nowhere else 4 me 2 go, but the casket or urn next. And even then, I'll still b Shady…..
It seems now with the internet being what it is anyone can say anything and it spreads almost like fact. Do you think its a good or bad thing that things like this can get so much coverage?
I think it's a great thing, because it sheds light on the artist, even when there is no new music 2 cover. And nit also, shows the artist, that they are important, in the field they work in. Each lie can be debunked. Each truth can be uncovered. And at the end of the day, your name is at the top of the headlines, and you can drop a massive record that will actually be heard at that point.
We recently posted your new mixtape "The Leak vol 2. Get Ready," can you tell us what you have planned next?
We just dropped What up, with Chamillionaire and Carlito Rossi, which is getten a great response.
