Looks like Eminem’s previous two-part interview with French Journal was not fully released. In this newly released interview, Eminem talks about the president of the United States Donald Trump, his impact on hip-hop, current rap and hip-hop albums and much more. You can read and watch the interview below:

ON BEING COMPETITIVE:

I think that I consider every albums differently, I write about how I feel. I need to express my feeling and the beat and the melody have to go with it perfectly. It is probably the album in which I expose myself the most. In Detroit, there was a place called the Hip Hop shop where a lot of rappers would come to battle, I was one of them. I still feel like all my bases come from there. Speaking of real problems, and not insipid s**t. I think the main thing that stayed with me from the time I was battling to now, is the competition. I am super competitive, I am always trying to pay attention to what is out in the game and I am trying to figure out ‘How can I do something like that, but in my own way?

ON DONALD TRUMP:

“Sometimes I get really upset about what is happening, you know, with our president back home. Sometimes I am not even able to put words on it because I am too frustrated. I have too many things to say, and I think everybody should do an anti Donald Trump song, even if you are not American.”

ON IMPACT ON RAP:

“When I am done with rap, hopefully I will inspire some dudes and they will take from what I have done, exactly like how I was inspired with my own heroes in rap.”
