Black on Black Crime. White Rap on White Rap Love.
In an interview with Detroit’s Metro Times, Em admits coppin’ Asleep In The Bread Aisle.
“Well, Ashley Roth has actually said, I think, in a song that he was influenced by me. And that’s fine. I feel great when other artists are influenced by me. I mean, it’s certainly flattering. But as far as people saying he sounds like me and shit like that, well, I got his album and I don’t think it sounds anything like me. I was just listening to it the other day, in fact. That’s one of the “catch-up” music things I mentioned earlier. I really wanted to check him out because people have been telling me to check him out. And I think the kid is dope. I think he’s good and I don’t think he sounds like me. It’s kinda sad that just because he’s white and he raps, then he’s automatically gonna get that.”

After the jump, Marshall also speaks on his new special friend. You Stans will love it.
“Elton John. I talk to Elton a lot. We became friends and I talk to him about things, career wise. And he had a substance abuse problem in the past. So when I first wanted to get sober, I called him and spoke to him about it because, you know, he’s somebody who’s in the business and can identify and relate to the lifestyle and how hectic things can be. He understands like the pressure and any other reasons that you wanna come up with for doing drugs, you know.
Me and him have had similar lives and stuff. So I reached out to him and told him, “Look, I’m going through a problem and I need your advice.” I also talked to T.I. a lot and, you know, we exchange advice.”
