Berikut ini adalah skripsi percakapan Kid Capri dengan The Urban Daily. Ia Berkomentar tentang Eminem dan beberapa Rapper lain. Tetapi Ia meninggalkan sebuah kata yang sangat fantastis.. "Eminem is the greatest of all time"

Berikut Percakapannya:

  • The Urban Daily:  You’ve been in the DJing game for a long time. How do you explain your longevity?
  • KC: I’m extremely blessed! I’ve seen a lot of dudes come and go and to be as strong as I’ve been all of these years is just a blessing. I have no complaints about my life. It looks like I’m going to keep going in this direction. I just thank God!
  • The Urban Daily: A lot of the conversation during season two of Master of the Mix was the whole vinyl versus Serato thing. Where do you stand on that?
  • Let me tell you something. Whatever gets the job done. I used to be totally against Serato, a straight vinyl dude. You gotta change with the times, man. You can do a lot more with your computer than you can do with just vinyl. The bottom line is to just get the job done. If you have all the records that is going to rock the party and do what your job pays for, then that’s what really matters. I did a party and played nothing but 45s and rocked it. So it depends on what you’re doing and what the event is.
  • The Urban Daily: When was the moment you said, “Eh, let me start rocking with Serato?”
  • When DJ Jazzy Jeff kept calling me and trying to convince me to switch over to it. Like I said, I was totally against it. What happened was back in ’06, we had to do Def Comedy Jam and Mike Epps was hosting. They didn’t want me to play the Def Jam records anymore, they wanted me to play my own beats. In order for me to do that, I had to download them into Serato so I could use them as records and cut them. When I did that, I kinda caught the bug. I started throwing the break beats in there and the reggae beats in there. Next thing you know, I had all my crates in there.
  • The Urban Daily: What would be the one record to shut the club down? If you don’t have the crowd, what record can you put on an instantly have them?
  • I would say “The 900 Number” by The 45 King. It’s an automatic classic party record. Timeless records never die, that’s why they’re timeless. There are certain records that no matter what, even if you’re not in a party mood, when you hear it you start to feel good. That’s been one of those records for all of my career.
  • The Urban Daily: If you had to compare your DJing style to one MC, who would it be? 
  • Kid Capri: Eminem. 
  • The Urban Daily: Why Eminem? 
  • Kid Capri: Because I’m the greatest of all time! 
  • The Urban Daily: And Eminem is the greatest of all time? 
  • Kid Capri: Yeah. Although it’s hard for me to say Eminem is the greatest because I’m such a fan of KRS-ONE, but if you look at record sales, concepts, and everything else, Eminem is that dude. There’s nobody touching him. As a matter of fact, there’s a lot of great MCs. Lil Wayne is one of the greatest. Jay-Z is too. There are a lot of incredible MCs, but Eminem is the one that stands out to me. Who’s your greatest MC? 
  • The Urban Daily: For me, personally, I’ll say Kanye West. I say Kanye West because I relate most with his back story more so than any other rapper. Plus, his beats and lyrics are dope too. 
  • Kid Capri: You know why I don’t think Kanye West is the best? It’s because he does everything well, but I think somebody else does it better. With Eminem, there’s nobody out matching his imagination.
