Back in 2019, Cordae, who then was called YBN Cordae, gave an interview to DJ Whoo Kid where the 23 year old rapper talked about Eminem’s influence on him.
“I love Eminem. You think Eminem heard my ‘My Name Is’ freestyle? Yo, did I not mention Eminem? Eminem is a f**king GOAT. Let me just say this, that ni**a’s crazy bro! That My Name Is song was STUPID! The way he put s**t together bro that’s crazy. That is a man who nobody wanna f**k with. That ni**a’s crazy.”
“I fuck with his Dead Wrong verse. I even f**ked with Infinite. When he used to kind of rap like AZ and NAS.”
In 5 hours, Cordae will drop a verse on Eminem’s “Killer” song. This is how the times change! You can watch the throwback interview below:
