With the NFL Playoffs underway, GQ caught up with Eminem for his picks. Joe Budden and Marshall’s manager Paul Rosenberg also weighed in.
GQ: You and Ray Lewis—the way you approach your professions, that intensity—I feel like you’re very similar.
Eminem: Ray Lewis, man. That’s a very passionate dude. He’s an animal. He’s the last of a dying breed, really. Obviously, he’s going to the Hall of Fame. He’s fucking iconic. They don’t make them like him anymore. He’s cut from a whole different sort of cloth.
GQ: You’ve mentioned Marcus Allen, Michael Vick, and Ben Roethlisberger in songs before. When can we expect a Tebow lyric?
Eminem: Who knows? A lot of things rhyme with Tebow, though, right?
