In 2013, in the interview with Montreality, DJ Jazzy Jeff revealed that the Will Smith gave Eminem some blunt feedback in the late 1990s, prior to Eminem’s signing with Dr. Dre and Aftermath Entertainment. Dj Jazzy says:

 

“I was a big fan of Eminem, especially of his super early stuff. I just kinda reached out to him and we did some stuff together… Will Smith walked into the room, and I think I played ‘Just The Two Of Us. Will listened to it, and Will looked at Eminem and said, ‘You’re either gonna be the biggest flop in Hip Hop, or you’re gonna be the biggest thing that we’ve ever seen in Hip Hop. And Eminem never forgot that.” Listen to the interview below:
