Over the past few years, Big Sean has met his idol Eminem on a number ofoccasions but that has not stopped him from still getting nervous about performing with the star. Eminem was a surprise guest at the Big Sean concert recently, but during rehearsals, Big Sean was so nervous about it that he kept forgetting his words.

Big Sean Says:

“I kept fumbling because it was such a moment for me.Eminem was there, under the stage, waiting to pop out from underground. I’m just sitting there thinking, ‘Wow, I’m onstage with Royce da 5’9, and Eminem is about to pop up.’ It was a major moment for me. But I executed it in the show perfectly, and that’s what counts.”

“He’s a great guy. I’ve been to the studio with him a few times, had a few chances to talk to him. He’s a legend – honestly, sometimes I feel like I’m talking to a ghost, how legendary he is. He’s here, and then he just disappears. But his presence is felt. He’s one of the biggest inspirations to me.”
