Benzino: The Person Who Sold Him The 'Racist' Eminem Tapes Killed Himself!!

Benzino claims that one of the "three white kids" who sold him the racist Eminem tapes killed himself.

“I’m in Puerto Rico while the whole beef’s goin’ on, whatever. We actually went and did our homework on Em. We was like, 20/20 investigations and sh*t. We really kinda wanted to see where he was from originally and really do his homework on who Marshall Mathers really is. So, we found out where he lived, where he grew up," he said.

“They call it the ‘racist Rap hour tapes.' I jumped on the next thing smokin’, met with the guys and I was like, ‘Man, where’s the tapes at? How much y’all want for it?'” he said.

The white kids had been trying to sell the tapes for a year. Benzino eventually paid $15,000 for them. "One of the guys killed himself," said Benzino.

In the tapes, Eminem raps, "All the girls I like to bone have big butts/ No they don't, 'cause I don't like that n*gger sh*t/ I'm just here to make a bigger hit."

In another track, Eminem rapped: "Blacks and whites, they sometimes mix/ But Black girls only want your money, 'cause they dumb chicks." He raps, "Never date a Black girl, because they only want your money/ And that sh*t ain't funny."

Em apologized for the tapes at the time, claiming that he'd just broken up with his Black girlfriend.
