For several years there have been rumors circulating about a possible collaboration between DJ Premier and Eminem but nothing to date has materialized. But now, with Preemo and Eminem’s close friend, Royce Da 5’9″, releasing the critically acclaimed PRhyme album, as well as Eminem wearing a PRhyme hoodie in the Detroit Vs. Everybody video, one has to wonder whether or not these two will finally get in the studio.
DJ Premier addressed the rumors with the Huffington Post.
I don’t know if you disclose this information but there have been rumors that over the past year or so you’ve cut some records with Eminem. Any truth to that?
We never cut the records. We were going to do one and it just never materialized at the time. He scrapped those songs during the Relapse album. After PRhyme was done, I saw him when he was doing his Shady promotions and he said he loved the album and that we got to do something finally. We talked about it recently but still nothing materialized. We at least said we got to do something. At least we got to that point.
