Just 24 hours after releasing his new single featuring Eminem, Kid Cudi exclusively spoke to Lil Wayne about how the collaboration came about. On Friday evening, Kid Cudi visited Young Money Radio and was interviewed by Lil Wayne who Cudi called an inspiration coming up — proclaiming that he used to call himself “Lil Scott”.
Kid Cudi then revealed how he was able to get Eminem on his single, as he said he reached out to Paul Rosenberg who connected both rappers, as Cudi proceeded to send over the track. He says: “So he [Eminem] sent the record back and I got him on phone and I had to tell him ‘yo bro you f**king destroyed it. Cause man, I was f**king nervous. I got Eminem on my record. He gonna body me on my own s**t. But I was like, f**k it I just want a joint with Em”.
The Cleveland, Ohio, rapper credited Wayne for the collaboration, saying his interview with Em “really set it off”. After trading admiration for one another, and both admitting they both got “bodied by Eminem” on tracks, Kid Cudi revealed he has a track he wants Lil Wayne to feature on. The track is in the works with Cudi sending over songs that Wayne is able to work his magic on.
