Lil Wayne and Eminem’s collaborations in the late 2010s were a dream that came true for Rap fans as the Young Money hit machine and Shady Records head honcho were considered at the Top of the game at one point.
In his interview with New York Times, Lil Wayne admitted he was scared after calling Eminem for a song. and explained his reasoning by praising the Detroit emcee.
“I was scared, actually, when I called EMINEM for a song. That is a monster. He must have the same thing I have with words. Like, we can’t get them out of our heads. Every meaning, every aspect of them. Things that rhyme, we hear it. I already know the gift and the curse that he has. And I love to hear the way he puts it together.”
Previously Eminem has also praised Lil Wayne while appearing on his show “I love when rappers are able to tell a story and don’t compromise any of the punchlines. It’s great to see you and me still doing it. It’s definitely an art to this sh*t and, man, you got it mastered,”
Lil Wayne and Eminem’s first one-to-one collaboration was “Drop The World” which was included in Weezy’s album “Rebirth”. Before this both also landed on another song “Forever’ but it also featured other stars Drake and Kanye West.
After Drop The World Weezy appeared on Eminem’s album “Recovery” on the song titled “No Love”. Since then both prolific Rappers are yet to collide again.
