Rapper Eminem has further fuelled his war of words with the bosses of
hip-hop magazine THE SOURCE after verbally attacking a co-owner in a Detroit,
Michigan, radio station showdown.
Enraged by comments DAVID MAYS made during a live interview on WDTJ-FM,
Eminem and a posse of 10 stormed the station on Tuesday night (11JAN05) for a
Music website MTV.COM reports the off-air verbal confrontation was
non-violent, but station staff report it was "loud and nasty".
The long-running battle between Eminem and The Source reached a new level
last year (04) when magazine head BENZINO exposed his arch-rival's racist past
with a track he recorded about a broken romance when he was an angry
Eminem has since apologised for his lyrics on the lost track, and has
filed a lawsuit against the magazine's bosses, claiming they released the track
without his permission.
Mays, who admits he was "shocked" to see Eminem "in the flesh" now hopes
the radio station confrontation will lead to a proper debate between the rapper
and The Source.
He says, "My attorneys are sending correspondence to his attorneys
relating to this thing, as well as the ongoing lawsuit.
"We need to have a real discussion. People in business, men, human beings,
resolve differences. These people can't come to the table and discuss issues."
