Benzino is a changed man who has matured since his younger days. He’s ready to sit down with Eminem and say “I’m sorry”. Benzino realizes that the beef was idiotic and had a lot to do with pride or feeling of being disrespected. It’s time for him and Eminem to bury the hatchet and put the past behind them.
Back in 2002 Eminem was supposedly pissed off with The Source magazine, which is owned by Benzino, for only giving his album 4 mics instead of 5 mics. When Eminem finished a set at a show in Puerto Rico and retreated backstoage Benzino attempted to approach Eminem so he could interview him for his magazine, but that night Eminem made it very clear that he didn’t want to have anything to do with Benzino or his magazine. This is what set off the entire beef, which lasted for about a two years.
