Eminem’s huge cassette collection


Eminem dreamed of buying every cassette he “always wanted” but couldn’t afford it as a kid.

Marshall Bruce Mathers III, known professionally as Eminem used to collect tapes with his friends when he was younger, and he is delighted to have such a big collection now as an adult after growing up without the money to buy them all.

Speaking to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe this week, he said: “It took me about three years to get what I got right now because some tapes are just harder to find than others.

“Because when I was a kid, I didn’t have money to buy every tape I ever wanted. So usually what we had to do was go to this place called Record Time, and I would take the tape that came out a couple of weeks ago, trade it in for the new tape, whatever else was out.

“I and my friends would take turns buying the tape and be like, ‘It’s your turn to buy this tape and I get to dub it, and then it’ll be my turn to buy the next tape’…

“But I said to myself, ‘If I ever make it one day as a rapper, I’m going to get every tape that I always wanted.’ And there’s something nostalgic about being able to hold the tape.”

Earlier this month, the American rapper surprised his fans with an early Christmas present by dropping the deluxe edition of ‘Music To Be Murdered By’ with 16 new songs.
