Redman on Working with Eminem: We Didn’t Out-Rap Each Other, it Was Even

Redman spoke about working with Eminem on “Off The Wall” in 2000 for the “Nutty Professor 2” soundtrack, which sparked a friendship between the veteran rappers. The Newark-born rapper explained that he flew to Detroit to brainstorm and write the track at Eminem’s studio, a process that Redman admitted isn’t something that happens today.

When asked if he overshadowed Eminem, or vice versa, on the track, Redman said that they each held their own and let their respective styles shine. Redman added that he was very pleased with the outcome of the record, but he and Eminem never went on to record other tracks in the future. Redman told DJ Vlad that if he needed Eminem to record anything with him, the Detroit rapper wouldn’t hesitate to come to his aid.

During the conversation, Redman also addressed a rumor about him turning down a meeting with Dr. Dre because he was tired from a flight. He explained that there’s more to the story, including the fact that he flew across the country with no sleep, and Redman said that he always wants to be sharp when he’s meeting with Dr. Dre.
