Hip-Hop Rumors: Eminem Considering a Career Change to Sports Commentating??!


We know Detroit rap giant Eminem has been going through some changes over the past few years…getting off those pills and whatnot, developing a new rap group called Slaughterhouse, still making good music, and doing a decent job of staying out of the negative paparazzi gleam.

And now it seems that the mostly private Em has taken on a new challenge – doling out public opinions about and advice to pro sports teams! In a recent interview with GQ magazine, the rapper offered his thoughts on the seemingly, kinda, well, always iffy Dallas team:

“Just for the record — I am a Lions fan first and foremost,” Eminem said. “But growing up as a kid, the Lions were so bad for so long, that I picked up another team in the Cowboys.

“I hate to sound f*cking cliché, but I truly believe that Romo gives them the best chance to win,” Eminem said.

Joking about using the sports commentary in an upcoming track, Slim Shady pondered: “Who knows? A lot of things rhyme with Tebow, though, right?” Hmmm. Yeah.

GQ also asked him for his predictions for the Super Bowl – which at press time were New England and New Orleans. One outta two ain’t bad!

He has dropped lines in songs about sports before, so maybe this is no big deal, but Ol’ Emsy doesn’t say much, so like Kanye West, it’s always worth a listen! Maybe he was inspired by Slaughterhouse member, Joe Budden’s, appearance on ESPN’s “First Take” a few weeks ago. We gotta admit…Joey B held his own in the sports department!!

    He should, personally I don’t see Eminem as that rapper everybody else does. I respect his grind but his music doesn’t coincide with me.

  • So lemme get this straight “AHH Staff”…Em gives his opinion on sports in a magazine interview, and from that y’all gathered he’s “considerin a career change”??  Did he specifically say those words?  And if so why didn’t y’all bother to print that?  Seein how it IS the headline and all.  I mean I know the pressure to meet deadlines can be a bitch and all, but y’all will try and pass ANYTHING off as a story…

  • Tril Beats

    All i can say is Hip Hop sucks now… & i wish this dude luck!!

  • real OG

    Cant say Ive like any music he has released since his 3rd cd whatever he wants to do. And he signed Slaughterhouse he had nothing to do with forming or making the group

    • You didnt like the Bad Meets Evil Mix CD with Royce??

      • Ok, I cant front…I liked it mostly because of Royce tha 5’9  lol

    • TruthSerum

      Regardless of what you liked his last album still proved he’s still the most bankable star in hip hop, 4 x platinum, Wayne at his peak only sold 3 mill, he’d be a fool to walk away for a job commentating on ESPN, lol
