Peter Gunz from Lord Tariq and Peter Gunz hip-hop duo, who released their debut album back in 1996, has recently sat down with Math Hoffa where the The Bronx, New York-rapper revealed that he was trying his best to get his son Cory Gunz signed to Eminem‘s Shady Records.
Cory Gunz who is currently signed to After Platinum Records, Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records, and Universal Republic Records also revealed that Eminem is still his dream collaboration.
“Cory was raised on LL, Rakim, Kane, KRS-One, Redman, Jay-Z, Biggie, Nas. He only heard that and I would give him those patters and gave him like a homework. Go write like that, do this, do that. I would give him sprinkle of everything. Little bit of Slick Rick, little bit of De La Soul, Tribe Called Quest, Busta, I wanted him to get full package. And then this rapper came along called Eminem and his patterns intrigued Cory and the rest is history.” said Peter Gunz.
Later in the interview, Peter continues: “I’m still a fan of Eminem. Yeah he may not be the same if he was black I get when people say that. He says it himself but that does not take away from him being incredible. Sometimes he says some s**t we can’t relate to but he also says meaningful stuff. He’s incredible to me. In my humble opinion, I think Eminem is incredible.”
“I met with Paul Rosenberg. I was really trying to get Cory next to Eminem. I even tapped the producers just to get next to Eminem, even if I didn’t want the beat. It was Mr. Porter but beat was fire. I felt like, if we get the beat from him and Cory rapped on he would play it for Eminem and that’s maybe set it up. That was my thinking of to try get him over there. It never panned out that way but things happen the way it supposed to happen.” Peter added.
Then Cory continues: “I wanted to work with Shady Records and to this day still I do. Cory and Eminem, that’ would be a dream come true. Shout out to Royce too.”
Peter adds: “That would be like me getting a song with Prince. That would be something on my bucket list if that happened before I die. Even before my own dreams, to get Eminem and Cory on a record or hear them rhyming together would be a dream come true because Cory one of the ones that can hang with him in my humble opinion.”
