In one of his latest episodes of Expert Opinion, Math Hoffa details the story of Benzino reaching out to him to record a disstrack towards Eminem.
“You know, years ago, when I was still youngster, Benzino called me up to be a part of that mixtape dissing Eminem. I agreed because this was the way to skip the shiny suits. This is pre-DMX. DMX came through and saved us from the shiny suits. Once I got the opportunity, I was like ‘yo I could skip that’ and everybody will know who I am.”
“I got in studio. I thought he was going to fall back and let me handle it. He had a response ‘Die Another Day.’ After that, he played Huddy’s response. After that he played LO’s response. Then after that he was like ‘yo I got these Spanish guys, they are dissing Eminem in Spanish.’ I think their name was Uno Dos or something like that. At that point, I was like ‘bro what you doing?!’ He was like ‘yo, I’m making whole mixtape and I’m going to drop it on Source.’ And then I was like ‘Naah, this ain’t it’ cause in my mind I was like ‘Em is better than you man’ [Laughs]. Benzino had his ways and I was not feeling it.” – said Math Hoffa.
