Eminem The Music Producer

10 years ago Eminem was the featured producer on the cover of Scratch Magazine. He’s mostly known as an emcee obviously but there was a point he was producing a lot of his own stuff and his artists on Shady Records. He’s pretty nice on the boards but my favourite work of his is the stuff he did with the Bass Brothers not even Dr Dre and I’m a huge Dr Dre fan.

From the back of the May/June 2005 issue of Scratch. A lot of people may think Gangsta Rap began on the west coast but it actually began in Philly. Check out the article about the birthplace of Gangsta rap.

Nas & Premo Will it ever happen ?

Back in Jan/Feb of 2006 this issue of Scratch Magazine was released with Nas & Dj Premier on the cover. It was exciting and every hardcore Hip Hop head went crazy thinking they were going to announce an album together. Even tho there was talk about it. It never happened. Its been 9 years since and Im not sure if it will ever happen….I can still dream tho…..
