The Source Reveals ‘Racist’ Eminem Tape


Eminem has copped to writing a racially inflammatory song that has come back to haunt him. The track – available at www.thesource.com – tells of his breakup with a black girlfriend in 1993.
“Black girls only want your money cause they’re dumb chicks,” Slim Shady raps. “Never date a black girl because blacks only want your money, and that s– ain’t funny … black girls and white girls just don’t mix, because black girls are dumb and white girls are good chicks.”

The track was aired by Source magazine executives, David Mays and Raymond (Benzino) Scott, at a midtown press conference last night. Benzino said yesterday that they got the tape from “three white kids from Detroit [who knew Eminem and] walked into Dave’s office and said ‘This is the real Eminem, and we’re tired of it.'”

He added that Eminem must be “held accountable” for the 10-year-old track: “Since Eminem made his music, every other black artist has taken a decline. Hip hop is being stolen from us. …We want it back.”

In his statement, Eminem fired back at Benzino, Mays and The Source, saying that they have had “a vendetta against me, Shady Records and our artists for a long time. The tape they played today was something I made out of anger, stupidity and frustration when I was a teenager. I’d just broken up with my girlfriend, who was African-American, and I reacted like the angry, stupid kid I was.

“I hope people will take it for the foolishness that it was, not for what somebody is trying to make it into today.”
