While fans continue to hear Detroit’s finest come together for a smash hit, G.O.O.D Music’s Big Sean recently updated everyone on the status of an Eminem collaboration going down.
Although he could not promise a joint effort would land on his upcoming Hall of Fame sophomore album, Sean did say it would come out sooner than most people might think.
“Nah, I can’t confirm it,” Sean said in an interview when asked about a Slim Shady record going down. “But he may be on there. I’m pretty sure you’ll get an Eminem/Big Sean collab sooner or later. Whether you get it on Hall Of Fame, whether you get it after Hall Of Fame, [I’m] pretty sure you’re gonna get something.” (The Urban Informer)
Last month, the rapper said he did not have the Em record secured just yet.
“The album’s really good, it’s really heartfelt, I feel like the [Detroit] mixtape set the tone and the album is going to take it to the top. … Miguel’s on the album, for sure, it’s a lot of good people on the album,” Sean promised in an interview. “I can’t say Eminem’s on there. He’s not on there right now, as of now.” (DDS)
Back in November, Sean spilled the beans on Marshall Mathers reaching out to him.
“Em didn’t come to the [‘Guap’ music] video. Em didn’t come but let me tell you something man,” Sean said in an interview with radio personality Tim Westwood. “Em reached out to me and was like, ‘Come to the studio. Come hang out when you get a chance. We gonna make that happen, man. That’s the legend right there.” (“Tim Westwood TV”)
A couple years ago, the Detroit rapper revealed his past interest in initially signing with Shady Records.
“Before I met Kanye, I did a rap battle, I used to battle rap,” Sean explained in an interview. “I was real popular. That’s how I got a good relationship with this radio station that I met Kanye at, but anyway, they were doing this rap battle to where this prize was $10,000 and a single deal from like Shady Music, Eminem and all them. So DJ Whoo Kid came and everybody judged and I snuck in. I wasn’t even old enough to participate in it, but I lied about my age. I got all the way to the final round and lost to some dude. But I really thought I won but the crowd was more on his side. So I lost but DJ Whoo Kid and them were like, ‘We gonna keep in contact and we’re gonna do this and this.’ Obviously they didn’t but then after I got on with Kanye, I met Whoo Kid again and you know, it was all good and Whoo Kid was like, ‘Man, I remember that battle! I was trying to hook it up.’ And I’m like, ‘All right Whoo Kid.’ But you know, Whoo Kid is my homie for life so it’s all good but yeah, that actually did happen once. I tried to hook up with Shady [Records] but G.O.O.D. Music was the perfect fit. I couldn’t be happier.” (Deal With No Deal)
