How to get hip to rap
Lisa Verrico, The Times, 21 November 2003
EMINEM IS in trouble again, this time over lyrics he wrote a decade ago. The owners of the American hip-hop magazine The Source have outed the superstar rapper-actor as a writer of racist lyrics. Their evidence was an old Eminem demo containing lyrics such as "I don't like that nigga shit/I'm just here to make a bigger hit". In his defence, Eminem claims that the recordings were made when he was "young, foolish and angry" and after he had broken up with an African-American girlfriend.
