Big Sean said he received big praise from Eminem for his verse on "No Favors."
Eminem's verse on Big Sean's "No Favors" has stirred much controversy for dragging both President Trump and Ann Coulter. In an interview with Big Boy, the I Decided emcee revealed that Detroit's pioneer white rapper praised him for his verse on the irreverent track.
"He was telling me how much he loved my verse," Sean said. "I'm like man shut your mouth," raising laughs from the crowd inside the studio. "He was like, 'I respect you [...] you're one of the most dangerous emcees."
The younger Detroit artist felt intimidated at first when Em sent him a 2-minute long verse where "he just let out."
"I lost my mind in the studio, I couldn't believe it," he said. "I was just happy he let it out on a track. But then I was like goddamn."
Big Sean said Eminem told him he's critical of most music he hears but that Sean's stuff "intrigues" him. He said Shady was glad to take part in his new album. The segment on Em's involvement starts at around the 17:20 mark in the video below.
