Dr. Dre calls Eminem the “best emcee ever”

“Long story short, I met Eminem at Jimmy Iovine’s office, we slapped hands, went to the studio and started recording,” Dr. Dre says of meeting Eminem. “And I’m not sure if anybody knows this: I think the first four [Eminem] albums, was just me and [Eminem]. His writing and his delivery and his imagination is off the charts – and I don’t think anyone would disagree with that. I think he’s the best emcee ever.”
