“Eminem is like the godfather of the hip-hop game,” Yayo said. “In a time like this, when records are not selling, he’s the only one that is selling. You know, Drake and all the other ones [did well], but Em did [close to] 800,000 his first week, and he’s #1 for the fifth week. It’s incredible. I think he has a faithful fan base of people who have been following him for years. They’re not going to stop following him and not stop listening to his music. Em said he didn’t like his last album as much as this one. You can hear the difference. I like both of the albums. ’3 a.m.’ is one of my joints. But Eminem has followers that’s gonna mess with him until the day he dies.”
Two-thirds of G-Unit discuss with MTV Eminem’s success with Recovery. Yayo even goes on to call him the Godfather of Hip-Hop. Bambaataa ain’t gon like that. Ha!
