(AllHipHop News) When two of the biggest Hip Hop artists in the world get on a track together it is sure to grab people’s attention. According to Eminem this is partly why he tapped Kendrick Lamar to provide a guest verse on The Marshall Mathers LP 2 track “Love Game.”
Eminem tells Zane Lowe in the third part of their interview that after he realized he did not have any other rappers on the album he spoke with his manager Paul Rosenberg about getting K. Dot to create an “event record.”
“Me and Paul had talked about maybe we should try and do an event record and get somebody like Kendrick,” said Em ”Kendrick, as incredible as he is, he’s also on the same label. He’s in our camp. It only made sense.”
The multiple Grammy winner then shares that Kendrick came to studio with him in Detroit rather than e-mailing music/verses back-and-forth. Eminem also explains why he and Kendrick attempted to keep the collaboration a secret.
“Me and him had a conversation about the element of surprise,” reveals Em. “We had talked about he shouldn’t even tell anybody.”
