Eminem made a prank telephone call to LL Cool J this week, pretending to be a rapper named Jason on a US radio show. He phoned in to Sirius Satellite Radio’s Shade 45 programme on Tuesday, which is presented by Tony Touch. Fellow hip hop icon LL was a guest and was challenged to a game of â€˜Name That Tune’ by the mystery man. Calling himself Jason, from Miami, Eminem recited a series of lines from some of Cool J’s songs, which he correctly identified. He then began to rap lines from his own track â€œLose Yourselfâ€, before revealing himself to the presenters and audience.
After being unmasked, Eminem invited LL over to his Detroit home, saying: â€œListen, man, you got this relationship with Dre. â€œYou’re cool with 50, so when are we gonna hang out? I got cable at my house, and the game is on.â€ Host Touch also took the opportunity to question the unexpected guest over his musical plans, which have been on a hiatus since 2006. â€œEverything is good. I’m just in the studio now working on songsâ€, Eminem told him.
