Rare Eminem freestyle released by Tim Westwood – listen

The previously unreleased track also features late Detroit rapper Proof

A rare and previously unreleased freestyle by Eminem has been shared online by British DJ Tim Westwood.

The 13-minute track features late Detroit rapper Proof and was recorded in 1999, when Westwood set up a session with the two artists. A truncated version of the recording has been available before, but was a third of the length, according to Hypetrak.

The audio, which you can listen to below, is from around the same time as Eminem’s first album ‘The Slim Shady LP’.

Recently, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor revealed he would like to collaborate with Marshall Mathers. Speaking to Swedish publication RockSverige, he named the rapper and Nine Inch Nails musician Trent Reznor as dream collaborators.

He said: “Everybody from Trent Reznor – I would love to work with Trent – to… I was just thinking about this the other day… I would love to do something with Eminem. I would love to trade some stuff back and forth with him, because I love the way he writes and the way he flows and the attitude; you know, the emotion that’s in it. And I’m very, very attracted to that. And I would love to do something where we kind of go back and forth. Will it ever happen? Probably not. But, you know, it’s still a dream.”
