She’s one of the most original writers. The songwriting skills of Dolly Parton with the rapping skills of 50 Cent.
Eminemmylou says: "rapping is a way of sticking up for yourself and other people. It’s brilliant"
Eminemmylou got into a battle rap with the Brighton hip hop heads, and then let loose on 50 Cent with her version of PIMP (LIMP), she does a battle rap to her ex hubby - Last Nail In The Coffin, and a tribute to Eminem with the Way I Am - country style with banjo.
