Archive Song: Jeezy & Freddie Gibbs – “Talk To Me” ft. Eminem

When Southpawer listed his favorite Eminem hooks, it turned out many fans did not know Jeezy and Eminem once collaborated on a track, which also featured Freddie Gibbs.

Back In 2011, the song titled “Talk To Me” by Young Jeezy, featuring Freddie Gibbs and Eminem and produced by Drumma Boy, was leaked and since then the song has never been released officially. Even though Eminem does not have a verse, the Rap Gad made sure to unleash one of the hardest hooks he has ever made.

The song has a little background story. During an interview with Hot 97, in 2014, Jeezy said that Freddie Gibbs ruined the relationship with Eminem and eventually the song got leaked:

I messed up a lot of relationships because of Gibbs, even with Eminem, just by me putting Gibbs on the record that was for me and, trying to convince Eminem to do the record, and the record leaking in the process. That burned a great bridge for me. Eminem is my dude.

The next day, during an interview with Hot 97, Freddie Gibbs addressed Jeezy’s comments. Gibbs revealed that he is unsure of how he could have ruined the relationship between Eminem and Jeezy:

“Jeezy talked about Eminem song and I want to clear that up. How did I mar your relationship with Eminem? I did not do anything of the sort. I was not involved in that whole process. He brought a song to me and asked me to get on it and I got on it. I was just doing what my superior at that time was telling me to do. I actually, honestly was against it. I did not want to get on the Eminem song because that was not the approach that I wanted to take. For one, I did not like the song. I’mma keep it real with you. Let’s just be real. I did not like song. So, I did not want to get on it. I told him I did not want to be on it. It was not my thing. I am not really comfortable with being on records with cats really if we do not  talk. So, I kinda wanted to establish that first before cause to me it kinda looked like I was thirsty.”
