What The Show is About

Hotboxin' is a podcast by Mike Tyson and his crew. The champ has been committed to this project for over a year now. If there was a way to label the type of show that you may expect if you ever tune in, it is a little bit of the Joe Rogan Experience. In that, many of the shows involve Mike talking about personal experiences while he happens to have a smoke or two.

Of course, one of the things that have brought more notoriety to the show is the fact that a lot of All-star guests have been on it. Anyone from Dame Lillard, Vince Macmahon, and well Eminem!

How Marshall Became Eminem

One of the most memorable parts of this particular episode is certainly when Eminem is sort of describing his journey. He pretty much mentions that he remembers writing rhymes at the age of 11! As he recalls, many of the material that he wrote at the time, of course, was not exactly worthy of being produced or anything like that.

One of the best lines though was when Marshall Mentions, "Once I found out that I was decent at something I just ran with it".

Some of the lyrics on Eminem's songs have been flagged as controversial, to say the least. Over the years he has never been portrayed in the media is a big family man. Especially since he has criticized his own family through his music. That being said, his love for his daughter Hailie has been a constant through the years.

In the podcast he was not afraid to show that love mentioning, “No babies, she has a boyfriend, but she’s doing good,”

For anyone who has followed the career of Eminem, they know that he did not have it easy in the beginning. One of the stories that he tells Tyson about is exactly how he literally went from rags to riches.

Apparently, in the most movie-like scenario, Marshall lost at the Rap Olympics. When he really needed the 500 dollar prize to stay afloat. Yet, that loss in retrospect may have been the best thing that happened to him. As that set off a chain of events that led him to meet Dr. Dre!
