The last time we checked in on Bubba Sparxxx, he was clean cut, rocking a plaid dress shirt, looking like an office worker.
Now, he's getting attention for his VladTV interview where he talked about failing to be the next Eminem when he was signed to Interscope.
In 2001 the Georgia rapper released Dark Days, Bright Nights and followed it up with his Deliverance LP two years later. Both albums had production from Timbaland.
"This is something that Tim and I have discussed too. Yeah, I failed to live up to being the second coming of Eminem," said Sparxxx. "He failed to become the second coming of Dr. Dre in that situation, even as far as getting caught up in that line of thinking of that’s what we’re competing with, or we’re trying to match up with this standard of feeling like that was the pressure that was on us, though, in that building."
He continued. “That’s what it was looked at as, the two different teams almost competing, even though we was always cool with ’em. But even just feeding into that line of thinking was a mistake, a grievous error on our part. And we definitely fell short of that [on the first album].”
Did you think Bubba Sparxxx was going to be the next Eminem when he dropped?
