Dave Tianen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel spoke with Florida Christian rapper KJ-52, whose track ‘Dear Slim’ takes a shot at Slim’s lyrics and their effect on kids that listen to them. Asked about the reception the track gets from diehard Eminem fans, KJ-52 admits, “I would be lying if I said I didn’t get a few threatening e-mails, but for the most part it’s been a very positive response. I’ll be honest, if it’s just a straight-up – ‘I hate you and I’m going to beat you up,’ I don’t even respond to it. It’s not really worth it because you’ll never convince them otherwise. But if it’s one of those (where) maybe they misunderstood the intent of the song, then I’ll take the time to explain it. Usually, nine times out of ten, they’ll walk away with a better understanding and really an appreciation for it.”
