I’m The Type of Guy

Eminem: The fall and rise of a superstar – Features, Music – The Independent

In one headline-grabbing endorsement, confirming him as the favourite cultural influence of the chattering classes, a white-haired Seamus Heaney declared him, in all seriousness, the saviour of modern poetry. “There is this guy Eminem,” said the Nobel laureate. “He has created a sense of what is possible. He has sent a voltage around a generation. He has done this not just through his subversive attitude, but also his verbal energy.”

Getting endorsed by a white-haired Seamus Heaney is the ultimate accolade. The best LL Cool J ever could manage was endorsement by a purple-haired Seamus Heaney.
