Eminem Provides First Beats 1 Guest Interview With DJ Zane Lowe

Beats 1 DJ Zane Lowe has teased an image on Instagram that confirms hip-hop artist and rapper Eminem will be the first guest interviewed on the global radio station, which launches as part of Apple Music next week. Eminem's appearance is largely unsurprising given that he has a close relationship with Beats co-founder Dr. Dre and is signed to his record label Aftermath Entertainment.

Eminem Zane Lowe Beats 1
Lowe has interviewed several high-profile artists as a former BBC Radio 1 DJ, including Chris Martin, Eminem, Kanye West, Jay Z and Rick Rubin, and those type of guest appearances on Beats 1 could be a major drawing point towards Apple Music. The streaming music service will also lure subscribers with a free three-month trial period and exclusive content such as Pharrell's new single Freedom.

Hope they're going to have some real musicians involved at some point. It's all rhymers and boom-boom-boom music up to now. Someone who can play a guitar would be nice. (That excludes you, The Edge! :) )

This thing is going to be interesting, I wonder if they will archive shows. I will likely enjoy listening to this more so than the Radio.

I am all for rock and alternative music but really?

Just because it is a different genre doesn't make it less real.

Remember when Zane Lowe interviewed Eminem over 10 years ago on Radio 1...

Em chucked him out of the studio and took over the entire show himself :cool:


Exactly. Slim Shady, I'm sick of him
Look at him, walking around grabbing his you-know-what. Flipping the you-know-who.

lemme guess, em says 'um' and licks his lips before everything he says. then some mention of the beats acquisition since he's best buds with dre, talk of past drug use and recovery, the 'state of hiphop,' and talk of new material that may or may not come out.

i dig a fair share of em's catalog, but i've yet to hear him 'be real' in any public facing forum ever.. guys so self-aware it's hard to watch or listen to, imho. i'd have picked someone a bit more dynamic and loose to get a vibe going. not my first, second or 600th pick for first guest.

Question..

Let's say I subscribe to Apple Music and I stream songs from albums I own. Will Apple pay for me to stream it on all of my devices?

Anyone can play the guitar. They need someone who can play a real instrument like an organ. ;)


Or the lute
