Eminem has ‘no idea’ when it comes to the business side of his career.
The rapper is prioritising getting his Shady Records label back on track. In order to do this, the hip-hop star will have to get to grips with the inner workings of the business, something he struggles with.
‘I don’t get into as much of the technical aspect in the business sense. I have no idea what’s going on – ever,’ Eminem told Detroit radio Station Channel 955. ‘I don’t even know where I’m at right now.’
The rapper is good friends with 50 cent and they have recorded many songs together, including You Don’t Know. Eminem admires his fellow rap star’s ability to focus on business.
‘It was always like a mutual respect thing and we became friends outside of the music. 50 is very big on the business aspects of his career,’ Eminem said. ‘I would consider him a smart businessman.’
Eminem helped produce Slaughterhouse’s new album Welcome to: Our House, which is out on August 28. The supergroup’s record has taken all his attention recently, but he has still found some time for his own material.
‘I actually started my album, but I haven’t fully went in yet because I’ve been finishing up this Slaughterhouse record,’ he said. ‘Oh my album? I don’t have a date yet.’
