A new clip of Eminem – recorded on August 20, 1998 – has emerged of him five months before he burst onto the scene with ‘My Name Is’.
In the footage Eminem asks DJ Stretch to ‘keep the same beat’ before launching in to a freestyle verse.
He then raps: “I look at my life in a new light, fuck it give me two mics. I write songs for me, fuck what you like.
“You probably hear me rap half-hearted because I don’t even like rap anyway. I’m just trying to get my porn career started.”

The footage is from a new documentary called Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives about the 90s college radio station that helped launch the careers of many of the biggest names in hip-hop. The film also features exclusive footage of Jay-Z, Nas, The O.C., Pharoahe Monch and other rap stars before they made it big.
Eminem said of the radio show: “Stretch and Bobbito was our dream. The fact we had a chance to be on it was crazy.
“It was certainly a highlight and a boost for my career and self esteem. We felt like we made it.”
