Eminem Says Hip Hop "In A Good Place Right Now"

Eminem believes hip hop is in good hands.

In a new interview with the New York Times, Eminem stated his belief that hip hop is in a good place in 2015.

The interview mostly addressed Eminem’s role and experience working on the soundtrack for the upcoming 50 Cent-produced film Southpaw, but also took the time to share his opinion on the state of the genre.

Here’s what he had to say:

“I try to stay up on everything that’s out. I love [Lil] Wayne, Drake, Big Sean, Schoolboy Q. I love Kendrick [Lamar]. I just try to pay attention to what’s out. Wayne puts out a new song, and my ears perk up. There are certain artists that make me do that just because of the caliber that they rhyme at — it’s like candy to me. Kendrick, the way he puts albums together — front to back, they’re like pieces of art. But hip-hop needs Drake, too. Hip-hop needs Big Sean. I feel like hip-hop is in a good place right now. There’s this balance of things going on, and it feels like some of the best rappers are the most successful. Sometimes that’s not the case.”
