has responded to his grandmom’s objections to using a recordings
of his late uncle on an upcoming release. The Detroit News reported
that Betty Kresin (grandma), is upset that Eminem had planned
to sample from a tape that he made 13 years ago with his uncle,
Ronnie Polkingharn, who died in 1991. "My grandmother is
going off on me. Now I don’t think anything is going to happen.
We grew up like brothers. I loved Ronnie. I’ve got a Ronnie’ tattoo
on my arm… I wanted to pay tribute to him I’ll let the public
decide for themselves what idiots my family is. My family has
never been there for me. They expect things because we’re blood."
Talk about dysfunctional.
