Rihanna has collaborated with Eminem not one but two times. The two worked together back in 2010 on “Love The Way You Lie” which was a big hit and again in 2013 on “The Monster” which was another huge hit.
So its no surprise when you ask Rihanna about Em she will tell you that he is perhaps one of the greatest rappers of all time.
“He’s one of my favorite people,” RiRi told Vanity Fair in her recent interview with the mag. “He’s got so many layers and he’s such a good person—focused, disciplined. I mean you can’t tell me that you have to be in the club when Eminem is legit at home and being a good father and is still one of the most prestigious rappers of our generation. He’s one of the most talented poets of our time.”
Rihanna also added that working with the Detroit lyricist on “Love The Way You Lie” helped her to express how she felt about relationships at the time.
“It was such a brilliant moment to have him ask me to be part of a record; I felt … anointed, because he thought I was cool enough to be on ‘Love the Way You Lie’,” she said. “But also, the lyrics [about a dysfunctional relationship] were just so true to what I felt and couldn’t say to the world at that time.”
Rihanna is also on the cover of the latest issue of the mag. She is also readying her new album ANTI for a release by the end of the year.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Eminem but something tells us that he could be getting back in the studio soon to deliver another classic body of work.
