Fresh off a platinum album in MMLP2, Eminem covers the latest issue of RollingStone magazine which will hit news stands on November 22. Inside, he chats with senior writer Brian Hiatt about his return to music, his “intentionally” spaced-out appearance on ESPN, love for Beastie Boys, his inspirations and more.
“I’m as happy as I can be, I guess,” Em reveals, later telling Hiatt, “Hip-hop saved my life, man. It’s the only thing I’ve ever been even decent at. I don’t know how to do anything else. I think they have a word for that — what do they call it? Idiot savant?”
