DJ VLAD has recently sat down on bomb1st where he revealed that an interview with Eminem is the interview that he always wanted to do the most.
“I mean, I always felt like an Eminem interview. Like, me and Eminem being roughly the same age, having roughly the same background, having roughly the same experiences. I mean, I didn’t grow up in trailer homes but I did grow up in projects in Springfield, Massachusetts and sort of this love of hip-hop and being white.” said VLAD.
Then he continued: “I discovered Eminem before Dre did cause I’ve been hip-hop kid since elementary school. I remember this website called Sandbox Automatic which basically sold an independent vinyl. This was like ’96-’97. And I remember they had The Slim Shady EP. There was a lot of buzz over this new white kid from Detroit. I remember I bought it. I bought the CD. I remember driving around in it in the bay and listening to it, letting my friends listen to it. I remember one of my homies was like ‘nah man, black people ain’t gonna f–k with this.’ but then Dre found him and boom and he’s a superstar. But I discovered Eminem before Dre and Jimmy Iovine and all these people. I was very early on that train. And I knew right away how talented he was and how much better he was than anyone else.”
“I remember I religiously followed every guest appearance he had, on Da Ruckus and you know, Bad Meets Evil and everything else. I really followed his career closely. So, saying that, I think me and Em could sit down like 3 hours, it would be the biggest interview he has ever done. Easy! Easy! The biggest interview he has ever done would be me and him because of what I do and who he is. I don’t think there is anyone that could sit down with him and pull off what I can pull off. But we have never been remotely close to an Eminem interview. I was in the same kind of outside area with him one time. Never spoken. But he knows who I am. He has referenced one of my Lord Jamar’s interviews in one of his songs so he knows who I am. But I’ve never been in the same room. That’d be an interview that I always wanted to do. But I don’t know if its gonna happen or not.” VLAD added.
Later, in the comment section of the video, VLAD explained the meaning of the word ‘discovered.’ He said: “The title is a bit misleading. If you watch the interview, I just said I was listening to Eminem’s music a while before he got signed to Dre. I was never in a position to sign him or anything like that, which people associate with the term “discovered”.”
