Eminem Talks Making Transition Into Acting

Posted By on May 18, 2011

     While on the set of his new "Fast Lane" music video, the first song from the upcoming Bad Meets Evil "Hell: The Sequel" album, Eminem spoke to MTV reporter Sway about making the transition from being a musical artist, to acting. Speaking about some adice he once got from fellow rapper Ice Cube, Eminem said…

"I think Ice Cube said this one time; I think I heard him say this one time," Em told Sway during their "RapFix Live" interview, which will stream on MTV.com on Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET. "If you can rap, if you can perform to the camera for singing and videos, it should be a pretty, fairly natural transition." "I felt like having heard him say that was like, 'Oh, this may be fairly easy' — and it wasn't."  (MTV)

     Eminem went on to describe the change, sayng it simply is a whole different thing.

"It's a whole different thing, because you may be used to performing to the camera, but it's a whole different ball game when the music is off and you have lines that you need to say. "It takes a minute to get used to." (MTV)

     Don't miss the entire MTV interview with Bad Meets Evil on the set of their new "Fast Lane" music video, debuting on RapFix Live today at 4pm Eastern Time.
