VIBE.com recently caught up with Eminem and Yelawolf who were in Detroit for a photo shoot.
Here is an excerpt from the interview where Yelawolf talks about connecting with Kid Rock and Eminem.
VIBE: Yelawolf, you connected with Kid Rock for “Let’s Roll.” What do you remember about meeting him for the ?rst time?
Yelawolf: I always knew that the comparisons were there when I ?rst started. That’s what you deal with Marshall and Kid Rock. VIBE: Are you saying because you guys are white, people threw you in together? Yelawolf: Well, early on, yeah. But culturally, I was making a connection with them two. With Kid Rock, it was the country, his connection with NASCAR, the rebel, the wild country boy side. My uncles are that way. I grew up in that world. On the hip-hop side, Marshall brought that out. I felt like I was sharing both elements of each. So, I said. “One day I would like to meet both of them.” That is the honest to God truth. I set that in my mind, and I wanted to make that happen. I had no idea I would end up on Shady or that I would end up with both of them at Kid Rock’s house. So it was really surreal.
