Nick Cannon says Eminem was training for “Southpaw” when he went in Detroit to beat him up

During a recent interview with VladTV, Nick Cannon said he actually tried to hunt Eminem down in Detroit to hurt him.

“I went looking for that muthafu**a. I went to Detroit. He do not live in Detroit. He do not live nowhere near 7th or 8th mile. He lives in Michigan and rightly so. He is supposed to come up. I believe it was the BET Awards. Like I said, at the time I was managed by Chris Lightly, musically at the time, so was Mariah, Chris was managing 50 and he was talking to Paul all the time … this is more than a decade ago.”

“Everybody knew how serious I was. I was there to defend my wife. I ain’t give a f**k about no lyrics … you said some disrespectful shit about my wife and I’m going to beat your a**. That was my mentality in 2009 … whatever year that was. Eminem was supposed to do that Jake Gyllenhaal boxing movie and he was training!”

“I was at a fight one time, I box and stuff, and he was like, ‘Yo, he ready for you. I was like, ‘Set it up E! All money goes to charity. You know I will do this! That is all I wanted.”

“Real talk … I wanted to match whatever energy he is on. I know I ain’t gonna out rap the muthaf**ka but I was like, ‘Yo, if you got a problem with me and my wife, talking that shit’ … you gotta be able to deal with the consequences that come with your mouth. Simple as that.”
