Sitting down with Zane Lowe, Jessie Reyez, who has collaborated with Eminem on Kamikaze album, opened up about working with one of the rap game’s legends:
“It was sick. He’s mad sick, man. That’s crazy to work with a legend. Another legend. Here in LA. Man, it was cool to be able to come up with it in front of him too, because it was not something that was copy and paste, it was like, we vibed, we met.”
“Rosenberg was there. He played me some beats and I was like, oh this is cool. Sometimes I have my notebook, I always have notebooks, and I write stuff down sometimes. If the faucet’s too wide, and there’s too many things coming, then I gotta do that, right? But every now and then, I will get blessed, and it’ll just come and so I’m just rocking, and I’m trying to hear it, and I’m trying to catch it, and I’m just figuring out the words, and Rosenberg and him were there, and they’re just vibing and chilling.”
“And then it was there. Then it just came. Then I was like, cool let’s do it. And we did it, and he was like, “You never had this before?” I’m like, “Nah.” He was like, “That’s dope.” And I was like, “Yeah!” Crazy, man. It was nuts to be able to get that praise from him. It’s crazy. He’s mad talented. Working with him was sick, and I love … He’s super sarcastic, man, and I’m fluent in sarcasm, so we were just right here, it was perfect. Love it.”
