The Source to reveal Eminems true colors?

Posted By on November 18, 2003

The Source Magazine executives David Mays and Raymond “Benzino” Scott will air publicly for the first time an explosive audio track recorded by Eminem that he has kept hidden since 1993 at a press conference on Tuesday, November 18th at 6:00pm. In the unnamed song, which will be played in its entirety, Eminem voices his opinions about Black women and Black people in general. Transcripts of the track will be provided.

The Source has verified the authenticity of the tape, which was provided by three white hip-hop fans from Detroit who were peers of Eminem in the early ’90s, at the time of the recording. The tape contains what is clearly identifiable as Eminem’s voice, reciting racial slurs targeted against Black women — and it proves Benzino right after a year of being vilified by the media for bringing such questions surrounding Eminem to the fore.

Bringing this tape to the public is the latest chapter in The Source Magazine’s ongoing effort to expose influences corrupting Hip-Hop, including racism.
