Born To Be Wild With Eminem & Yelawolf (Pg.4)
YW: When we pulled up Bob [Kid Rock] pulled up on Waylon Jennings’ old golf cart painted like the General Lee. We pulled in and he’s got two cannons sitting in front of his house. A lot of classic Americana memorabilia. Letters from Johnny Cash on his wall. Pieces of his history at his warehouse, from when he was opening up for Too Short. I was just respecting his evolution from opening up for Too Short to hosting the CMTs is very inspirational. Me and Marshall played ball, which I won by the way.
You guys were playing basketball?
YW: You just gonna let me have that? [Laughs]
EM: Listen, I’ll let the reader ?gure out if he’s telling the truth about who won.
So he beat you Yelawolf, and you got him by a good, what four inches?
YW: We were playing 21 and I was hurt. Bad ankle.
EM: Now the excuses come. Him and his man got it.
How bad was the beating?
YW: It was so close, I had him right up to the very end. And he came back for the win.
EM: We were playing 21, and yeah, it was close. He had like four points.
Kid Rock didn’t play?
EM: He was barbecuing when we were playing.
YW: Didn’t Kid Rock beat you in a game of horse in ?ip-?ops?
EM: We played horse that night, really?
YW: Yeah, in ?ip-?ops that night.
EM: Do you really want this record to come out.[Laughs] Nah, he is nice. I’m not gonna front. He’s got a nice shot. He can play-play.
YW: Basketball, like I don’t know, the hunger to win with this dude [pointing to Eminem]. It’s awe- some but it’s also very funny.
EM: I’m a very competitive person, I will say that.
