Video: Eminem x Royce da 5’9″ in 1998

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

Wow, this is truly a fucking treat. In 1998, a young Eminem spoke to Quest of UGHH on the Lyricist Louge Tour. He was a bit more ready to speak on his project and sorta dressed like a pedophile, but it is a gem to see how he would conduct himself before his career skyrockted with the success of The Slim Shady LP. The end of the video includes footage from a year later when Quest runs into Eminem while interviewing Royce da 5’9″, who was on tour with Shady, to speak on Bad Meets Evil, and Em is a completely new person.

Just hearing Quest speak on the internet is unbelieveable in itself, watching Royce, Em & Paul is mind-boggling.
