As Eminem prepares for his new album and his upcoming 2014 tour with J.Cole and Kendrick Lamar, he recently weighed in on his thoughts about the Compton MC.
“What he’s doing right now, it’s pretty fucking incredible,” Eminem says of Lamar during an interview with Billboard. “He seems like this kid that’s just full of life and happy to be here. The impact he’s had over just the last couple of years, it’s been really fun for me to watch.”
In the interview with Billboard, Marshall also talked about the sequel to his insanely successful Marshall Mathers LP, and his hope to not make a third installment:
“I knew that it would have to match a certain intensity and vibe and feel in order to call it [The Marshall Mathers LP 2],” Eminem says. “I want to say I’m confident that I’ve done that, but it’s up to the listener to decide.”
“I hope not,” Eminem says. “I don’t know what I’ll be doing as far as whether I’ll still be making music. I’d like to keep doing it as long as I still have the passion for it. But I hope to always be involved in hip-hop in one form or another. Because when it comes down to it, this is really all I know.”
