Since being named the winner of AFH’s user-generated GOAT competition, Eminem has been busy promoting Southpaw, a Boxing film starring Jake Gylenhaal and 50 Cent, and for which he is the soundtrack’s executive producer. Previously slated to become an honorary member of N.W.A. as he joins them on their forthcoming tour, those reports by Dre/Em’ reps to have been untrue.
