After a photograph of Kendrick Lamar and members of Black Hippy in the studio with Eminem, Royce Da 5’9 and Denaun Porter last June many wondered if there was a collaboration between the two on the Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP 2. Eminem’s album is set to be released November 5th.
“I wish,” Lamar told Los Angeles radio station Power 106, via XXL Magazine. “We haven’t really gotten a chance to build in the studio like that. I basically just met him for a second. But if I get that call, I’m definitely running.”
We’ve already heard two upcoming tracks from MMLP2, one called “Bezerk” and another called “Survival.” Eminem gave Kendrick Lamar, who called Eminem one of the greatest in “Control,” a shot-out in “Bezerk.”
“’bout to go ham, ya bish, shout out to Kendrick
Let’s bring it back to that vintage Slim, b***h!”
Kendrick Lamar recently went on Hot 97 to talk about the “Control” verse. He was out of the country when the verse dropped and didn’t immediately know the hype it caused.
“It took a couple of days.” Kendrick said. “I was in the U.K. for a second. You can’t really feel the energy out there like it be up in the States. I realized when I got some real good internet service at the particular moment and I saw a bunch of response records and I knew, for a fact, that it inspired a few cats to get out there and do their thing.”
