Eminem & Yelawolf Cover Vibe

November 18, 2011 · Posted in covers · 10 Comments 

Eminem and Yelawolf pose for the cover of Vibe Magazine’s December issue, hitting newsstands December 6th. A T.I. cover is also on the way. Read an excerpt from Vibe’s joint interview with Em and Yela below.

Eminem, what advice do you offer, if any, on being scrutinized for being a white rapper. Do you guys ever talk about race in that way?
Eminem: We make jokes about it, but I don’t think we talk about it in depth. As I was listening to his music, I am not even thinking about any of that shit. It’s just the music. That’s one of the things that’s great about it. I’m not even thinking about it when I hear the music.

Yelawolf: We do poke fun of it because it’s funny. Like, he calls me White Dog.

Oh, you called him that on the BET Awards Cypher. I didn’t realize it was an ongoing joke?
EM: Yeah, or Beige Sheep. [Laughs]
YW: Cracker Nuts. Whatever, I think it’s kinda unspoken.
EM: We deal with it enough as it is. So now, let’s make music.
YW: Let’s make great records. At the end of the day, that’s all there is to do.

So is Hip-Hop colorblind?

    I’m grateful of all the new up-coming caucasian rappers
    But they need to be more like Yelawolf
    More aggressive and used to the streets

    Oh and also, KillerHipHop are you doing the lyrics for Yelawolf’s album when it comes out?
