In a recent interview with Jools Holland, Ed Sheeran claimed that he and Eminem have a particular affinity over their shared love of cassettes.
So much so that the hitmakers frequently write to each other about their collections.
Ed said: “I collect cassettes and I’ve got Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder and they are quite difficult to find. The only person I know who collects the same is Eminem.”
“He collects cassettes, that’s his thing. He loves collecting. He is avid at going to find them. We have started having this, it’s like a very cool pen-pal thing. I got a message the other day about an LL Cool J cassette.”
