As part of BET’s Rap City special tonight, Eminem visited Big Tigger for “EM360.” In their time together, they talked about various topics concerning his life now, as well as ran back through memory lane, as Tigger got Slim’s opinion on his previous albums.
Not only that, he spoke on what Kendrick Lamar means to the game and why he decided to work with him on Marshall Mathers LP 2, as well as life after relapsing. He wasn’t selfish either, he brought Slaughterhouse to the studios for an interview and they helped out in “The Backroom” with freestyles from each member.
If you didn’t catch it on TV when it aired, watch what you missed below.
Without question the cypher segment just might be the most popular part of the BET Hip-Hop Awards for the viewers. This year is no different and has some added interest, due to the couple of shots that Kendrick Lamar may have sent towards Drake. Aside from that excitement, the rest of the cypher lineup is also stacked with artists that include SlaughterHouse, Action Bronson, A$AP Mob and the entire TDE collective.
If you missed any throughout the night we got them all right here!
Click image to watch Just Blaze’s interview with Sway in the Morning
If you remember around the time that “DP3” dropped recently, Just Blaze was on Twitter and briefly spoke on a track that him and Jay-Z made around the time of The Black Album. The song was along the lines of a “Song Cry 2″ (that was tentatively called “Hello, Young Lady’) and in this interview with Sway, he went into more depth about it. The track was actually considered for Magna Carta Holy Grail, but that didn’t last long.
Just also spoke on his relationship with Hov in 2013, and how their conversations don’t surround music at all, but more on a personal level.
To wrap up the interview, he talked about executive producing the upcoming Slaughterhouse album and how he wants to approach their style of making songs (not just out-rapping each other on a 16) as opposed to their last project. Producers on deck include araabMUZIK, Cardiak, !llmind, Justice L.E.A.G.U.E., Alchemist in himself.

Mark your calendars for July 30th and get those W’s ready to fly out the window!
Joell Ortiz is batting a cool 1.000 this year and U.O.E.N.O. it. But he’s been doing this for years, shame on you for just now catching on if that’s the case… We kid but, really though, pay attention to Joell as he still has a lot of 2013 left for him to takeover as well as his Slaughterhouse brethren. Stay tuned.
Crooked I has been relatively quiet after a monstrous 2013 him and the rest of Slaughterhouse had. But that changed as he stopped by The Wake Up Show with King Tech and Sway and does as the West Coaster does best. Push play up top as he puts the battery in his back and his bars tap dance over the beat.
Royce had to dust off the mic as he spits his flow to get thing on a good start again. Borrowing “We Major” beat to assist him into his 32 bars. He feels brand new for 2013. Of course he got more music to come. We never count out Royce especially this early in the year. As of whats to come next, that’s another story.
In light of the events late last week, Fat Joe adds a very sentimental verse on the Slaugherhouse “Goodbye” record in dedication to the late Chris Lighty. Joel Ortiz also adds a new verse in remembrance to the late Hip-Hop mogul as well.
