Eminem shares story LL Cool J gifting him chain in “Behind the Music” interview

In a new clip from Behind the Music on Paramount+, Eminem went into detail on his friendship with legendary rapper LL Cool J, confirming longtime fan speculation about a certain piece of jewelry.

“Since I was a little kid I always wanted a chain. I was recording with Rick Rubin and I was like, ‘Yo, can you ask LL where he got his chains from?’ So he had these made and sent them to me.” says Eminem.

“I’m like, ‘Yo, I wanted that. That is what made me actually want to rap,’” Eminem adds.

The full episode of Behind the Music will be released on Paramount+ this Thursday.
