Macklemore overwhelmed by Eminem's support: 'He's one of the best rappers ever'
'Can't Hold Us' hitmaker Macklemore has revealed that being supported by rap heavyweight Eminem is amazing and he can't believe what nice things the 'Stan' superstar had to say about him as a contemporary.
Eminem recently told the Rolling Stone that he admires Macklemore's lyricism: "He's really dope... I think there's very technical s**t that he does. He's a really good songwriter, too. Conceptually, the s**t he does is pretty f**kin' incredible."
He responded to the magazine and confessed that the praise from such an internationally renowned artist means the world to him: "I really want to Instagram that quote, but Ryan (Lewis) told me I shouldn't. I think I still might."
"What meant the most to me out of all that s**t, is what he said about the technical stuff, and the songwriting. Because I think a lot of people do, for whatever reason, think that there's not a technical skill set to what I bring to the records. And to have Em validate that - I mean, that's like the technician of technical rap. So that was super fresh to me. And obviously he's Em, he's one of the best rappers ever."
