Tables have turned for Eminem, a white rapper who Dr. Dre introduced to the world in 1999. Now Slim has signed and unleashed 50 Cent, a black artist who many predict could become the next rap sensation. “It’s kind of funny how it works, isn’t it?” said Eminem. “When we’re in the studio, I don’t look at Dre and go, ‘Wow, you’re black!’ And he doesn’t look at me, and say, ‘Wow, you’re white!’ We don’t dwell on color. This is about music. Art. If 50 was white or Spanish or purple and rapped as good as he does, he’d still be in the same position. My prediction: This guy is the next big thing.”
