Lil Wayne Says He Refused To Get Bodied By Eminem On Their Collaborations (Video)

In the late 1990s, Eminem and Lil Wayne burst onto the Rap around the same time. Both MCs’ careers date back earlier into the decade. However, the same 1999 Marshall Mathers released The Slim Shady LP, The Hot Boys’ Weezy dropped breakout solo, Tha Block Is Hot. Each artist had respected veteran producers at the helm in the form of Dr. Dre and Mannie Fresh, respectively. From there, each artist took flight into superstardom during the next decade.

Although an Eminem and Wayne collaboration may have seemed unusual to some Rap fans in the ’90s, the two men worked together several times. 2009’s “Forever” linked Em, Weezy, Kanye West, and Wayne’s protege Drake for a blockbuster single. Later that year, Marshall appeared on Wayne’s Rock song “Drop The World.” A year later, Tunechi returned the favor with a feature verse on “No Love.”

Appearing on Drink Champs (episode #195) for the release of his January 31 album, Funeral, Wayne describes the level of competition that he feels with Eminem. “I did a few joints with Em, that’s my man,” Lil Wayne says. Co-host N.O.R.E. brings up Eminem’s propensity to out-rap his collaborators—a claim once popularized by Nas during the feud with JAY-Z.
