T.I. Pays Respect To Eminem


T.I. and Eminem have a big respect to each other’s artistry and personality. Tip had the same problem with drug addiction as Eminem and after Recovery T.I. took an advice from Em and now they are both completely off drugs. In a Billboard interview, 2010, T.I. saluted Eminem for that:

“I haven’t had a chance to speak to Em since I’ve been home. And I heard that while I was down, he was trying to get in contact with me, but I don’t know if the dots just didn’t connect… Overcoming his own adversities, you know, winning the battle against his own demons and continuing, you know, to break the mold and re-set the standard of what it means to be the most successful hip hop artist in the game. I salute that, you know, to no end. I love what he is doing with Slaughterhouse. I love the move that he made to sign Yelawolf. And the record with him and Royce Da 5’9″, that record is going H.A.M. He killed that BET Hip Hop Awards cypher. He killed that s*hit. I’ve been peeping the move man, I just didn’t have a chance to really pick up a phone and get to him personally..”

Previously, T.I. talked to VIBE magazine about how he reached out Eminem for an advice:

“I asked Em how he knew he was an addict. He said, basically, if you put yourself in harm’s way, if you risk that, you have got to assume that there is something fundamentally wrong with your thought process”

T.I. and Eminem have made two collaboration before. Take a time and listen to them:
