Eminem has hit out at litigious musicians for going against "artistic expression" when they complain about his biting lyrics.

The outspoken rapper, whose latest album Encore attacks everyone from Michael Jackson to US President George W Bush, believes if everyone offended by his satirical lyrics were to take legal action, he would be "broke" by the end of his career.

Eminem says, "It's f**ked that artists want to sue other artists for saying something that's artistic expression.

"If everybody I say something about on Encore sues me, I'm going to be the one broke motherf**ker by the time I'm done with my rap career.

"But hey, if you want to sue me, take a number, because there are lots of people waiting in line wanting to do that."
