Eminem Says He Came Close to Writing a Rap Attacking Kanye West and Drake
Eminem has revealed he came close to writing a rap in which he attacked Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Drake, the Independent reports (via NME).

The Detroit rapper opened up about how other musicians "killing it" between his "Encore" and "Relapse" albums made him feel insecure about himself and his own music while appearing on Los Angeles radio station Power 106.

"For that time period when I was away, I was watching what was going on in the game. Anything that was hot at that moment, anybody that was really killing sh-t," he said. "I felt so bad about myself and the music that I was creating, I felt I was starting to turn into a hater."

He continued: "Singling Kanye and Wayne out at that time period, they were the ones killing it the most to me and it hurt. I'd pop a CD in and be like 'F--k man, I'm not doing this no more'."

After saying he considered writing a rap "dissing everybody," he explained he never put pen to paper because it would be "career suicide."

"There were times that it didn't feel good to be me," Eminem said. "I think deep down I just wasn't happy with myself, man, you know? There were some really dark moments in there, when I think about my thought processes when I was a high a lot. It wasn't good and it certainly wasn't me. I'm not even that sort of person."
