On this episode of The Premium Pete Show the legendary rapper Ice-T talked about almost signing Eminem and touring with him:

“I was fan of Eminem before Dre signed him. I got the cassette. I had a label. Somebody brought be a tape and said you gotta hear this. He said he’s white dude. He’s nasty. I let homies listen to them and at the end I told them that’s a white dude and they were like “WHAT.” Next thing I head was Dre signed him. I was already up on Em. Then we went on the world tour. Eminem was there. Fans were really rude to Eminem. There were going at him really hard. But Emimem kept doing it and then I was like “this kid will blow up”. That’s when I first met Em and I said ‘what you want out of this?’ He said ‘I just want to be around like you and Dre.’ That’s all he wanted. Longevity. Pfff and he f**king did that.”
