Nathan Kane talks about being raised by his brother Eminem




During a conversation with Hailie Jade Mathers on Just A Little Shady podcast, Eminem‘s younger brother, Nathan Kane has shared what it was like growing up with the hip-hop icon, describing Eminem as “the best role model”.

He was the best role model I could have had to help me be the dad that I am today,” – Nathan Kane

He also recalled the earlier days of Eminem’s massive fame. “I started understanding a little more when reality would hit when I would start seeing Eminem on TV and going to shows and all the signatures and crazy people. I am like, ‘Alright, well, this is real’… A few years later, when I was able to leave from being under my mum’s care, I moved in with you guys.

Nate also said that seeing his brother’s success inspired him to start writing, too. “I had learned from your dad, my brother, how to do music and how to write formulas, compound syllables and tested it out in the beginning. From there, I started looking around for beats and whatnot and got comfortable enough with my voice and writing skills that I started recording and getting a feel for how I would deliver songs and how that would formulate to where people would enjoy it.

During the interview Nathan also recalled the times when he was trying to look like his brother and how he got tricked by his cousin to dye his eyebrows: “[Eminem] would get so many free clothes and buy clothes that I would just take some. I would take his hand-me-downs, his huge ‘fat Farm’ outfits and stuff that I thought would fit me. I was like 110 pounds that time and trying to wear 3XL, fit perfect! When I was 12, and went to your dad’s first show, my brother’s first show, my cousin John convinced me, going to his show, not only should I dye my hair that my brother also dyes his eyebrows. Being young I’m like ‘Oh really? I wanna dye my eyebrows too. Sounds like a perfect idea. I wanna look like twins.’ But it was not case. [Eminem] didn’t dye his eyebrows.
