Slim Shady on Fighting Demons
“Eminem Speaks” is the sixth track on the album. Over a chill beat, Slim Shady will most likely say a few words about Juice WRLD.
This type of thing has happened in the past. Juice’s first posthumous album, Legends Never Die, featuring Eminem. On an interlude track titled “The Man, The Myth, The Legend,” Em spoke with Kxng Crooked about the young talent.
“Shout out to Juice as well, man; that kid was incredible.” What the f**k was that freestyle he did on Westwood for an hour? He mastered that f**king quickly for someone so young. It’s extremely depressing. Eminem says, “His potential was off the charts.”
