"I think that from the stuff that I've heard -- I haven't heard a lot from them, I still have to go check out everything that they're doing -- but I've heard enough to know that it feels like they're pushing boundaries and buttons, and that's definitely one of the things that I'm familiar with, especially when I first came out. I love it, I love the fact that they're doing that. And the dudes can rhyme."
It's worth noting Eminem hasn't been "shocking" in years -- most of his most sadistic and homophobic rhymes came early in his career, before he was rehabilitated by Elton John and actual drug rehab. But since he's demonstrated he has a taste for blood, horror, misogyny, and general fury over the course of his 15-year career, Goblin probably is the right album for him.
