In 2013, Ty Dolla talked about his favorite things about Eminem with Complex Magazine:
Favorite Song: “My favorite Eminem song is ‘Stan’ because that’s one of the best-written songs ever. He wrote the fuck out of that song.”
Favorite Album: “The Slim Shady LP was incredible. From top to bottom it was put together right, he killed the lyrics and he was hungry.”
Favorite Moment: “My favorite Eminem moment has to be the MTV Awards when he came out with like a thousand Eminems. That was just like fucking very original and just classic. I’ll never forget that. Eminem is definitely the best rapper alive.”
