MTV News reports Eminem is one of the most selective rappers in the business when it comes to collaborations, so his appearance on the long forgotten Boo Yaa Tribe’s new record is certainly a statement. “It’s all about mutual respect,” explained the Godfather, one of six Samoan brothers who make up the group. “He sees the struggle we go through and he wants to give back. A lot of people want to pay him big money to do this, but he feels us. His whole concept is that he only wants to fu** with real people.” Read more.
