Mike Skinner, also known as The Streets, who again addressed comparisons to fellow white rapper Eminem.
“It’s great to be talked about alongside him and not someone like Vanilla Ice” said Mike Skinner. “But I don’t really think we’re alike really, other than both of us being lairy”. (Brit slang for controversial).
Mike seems as surprised about his success in England as anyone else admitting, “I knew I was doing something no one else had ever done and I knew people would respect it. I never thought it would sell. No one ever thought it would sell. Even the people who bought it never thought it would sell.”
