Hip Hop DX recently caught up with rapper, Talib Kweli. In an exclusive interview, Kweli talked about the influence Eminem has had on his daughter,

“Eminem introduced my daughter to lyrics,” Kweli says of that day in an exclusive interview with HipHopDX. “When he performed [‘Not Afraid’], she was like, ‘Who is that, daddy?’ I think she was like 10 or 11. I was like, ‘That’s Eminem.’ She was like, ‘That’s one of the best rappers I’ve ever heard.’ And she’s been on some lyrical shit ever since then.

“It was amazing to me to watch my daughter discover Eminem, and be into his lyrics,” Kweli continues. “She immediately noticed a difference ’cause Eminem had kind of been missing from the scene for a couple years before then. She immediately noticed he can rap better than everybody. She was like, ‘He was the best rapper on the floor tonight.’ And I’m like, ‘Wow. Okay. She recognizes it, too.'”
