Eminem slams Kanye West over Taylor Swift incident: 'He shouldn't have done that.'

“He shouldn’t have done that,” says the Detroit rapper, who is currently No. 1 on the Billboard album charts with his Recovery CD. “I mean, she’s a little girl.” Eminem also recalls how, during a personally bleak period a few years ago, he became jealous of Lil Wayne’s success and considered releasing a track dissing both the New Orleans rapper and West, before he thought better of it. “It would have been career suicide,” he claims.

Do you think Eminem is right to criticize West? Or do you think his words are hypocritical, given how many people he himself has attacked in rhyme over the years?
