Skinner Loves Being Called The British Eminem

THE STREETS rapper MIKE SKINNER is delighted Americans refer to him as the British EMINEM.

The DRY YOUR EYES star adores Eminem - real name MARSHALL MATHERS III - and credits the STAN hit-maker with inspiring his flourishing music career.

He says, "I still get called the British Eminem in the States, so it would be perverse not to think he's great.

"It doesn't matter how high he gets, he's always got something to prove and that's what makes someone go from being a good artist to being a great artist. You just can't knock his consistency."
