Slim Thug recently stopped by Hot 97 for an interview with Ebro In The Morning. During the interview he spoke on the Black Lives Matter movement, rappers moving their money to black banks and much more.
Perhaps the most interesting part of the interview was Slim talking about taking a Jay Z song and not having a shot at Beyonce.
Slim Thug says when Jay Z was working on “I Ain’t Heard Of That” remix which was really the “Change Clothes” remix, Jay Z ended up doing his own verses to it but he didn’t use it, so Slim ended up doing verses as well. He and Pharrell were supposed to reach out to Hov again because Slim wanted the song since Jay Z didn’t use it, but the album ended up leaking. Slim jokes that he ran in to Jay Z later on and Jay said that was really his song.
Slim Thug also says he didn’t actually know Beyonce before “Check On It”. He says if he knew her he wouldn’t have let a young Jay Z steal her from him! Rosenberg asked Slim Thug if he recorded “Check On It” in the studio with Bey, to which Slim replied saying he had to send his verse because Jay Z wasn’t having that. Hilarious!
