Em goes on to talk about his rough childhood growing up in Detroit's 8 Mile. He says that he has always thought himself as a fighter. Saying he's been fighting his whole life. He for the first time candidly talks about being bullied, beat up and in shoved into lockers. He was mostly harassed for "just being the new kid". Because of his mother's own struggles with drugs he often found himself going to two-to-three different schools a year.
Some other things he talks about are being white in the Hip Hop World. His process of "stacking ammo;" he stores words, sayings and ideas in boxes. Anderson tells Em it's something he sees whenever you study a crazy person. In return Em chuckles, maybe I am crazy. It is a very nice piece.
