Eminem plans to jump start 2003 off with change.
The rapper said that he has abandoned drug use, is working out daily to maintain
his health and is focused on the New Year.
Em's two albums and hit movie "8 Mile"
raked in a total of $300,000,000. Eminem was also the best selling rapper of
the year. The Eminem show moved a cool 7.4 million copies, while the soundtrack
to "8 Mile" moved 3.5 million.
Looking back at this year? I really haven't thought
about it," Em told the Detroit Free Press. "I haven't taken it all
in yet. I never really stop to look back on things and reflect on them. I keep
'em on the head, but I'm concentrating on next year more than anything."
Em said that he is shunning the spotlight for
the time being and focusing on getting his production weight up. "It's
almost to the point where I truly believe I may be getting too big for my own
good," he said." I never really asked for that."
The budding producer and label is exec is working
out of 54 Sound in Ferndale, Michigan and preparing releases from 50 Cent, Obie
Trice and D-12. "As far as hip-hop, there's talent in Detroit -- it's just
hidden. It hasn't been exposed yet," he continued. "I want to open
up the market here."
