Cambridge, Massachusetts-born rapper who goes by the name Millyz says he got the “Stan” sample clearance from Eminem.
Few months ago, Millyz shared the snippet of the song, singing the remix version of “Stan,” which originally samples Dido’s “Thank You.”
Yesterday, Millyz took to Instagram to shout out Eminem and give fans another listen of the upcoming song, which finds him singing over “Stan’s” signature melody. “OMG WE CLEARED THE “STAN” SAMPLE!!! DROPPIN 3/9!!! Salute to the GOAT.” He wrote in caption.
In his story, the Massachusetts rapper wrote: “We cleared the Eminem Stan sample. For everybody who been asking when I’m droppin, it was a long process but we lit now. I’m dropping asap! Shout out to the GOAT!”
Millyz’s love of Eminem goes deeper than just sampling “Stan.” Last year, in an interview with VladTV, he said all he wants is for the legendary Detroit rapper to hear his music: “Eminem, Slim Shady, Marshall Mathers. Number one, two and three, for sure. I am a student of Em. That is one of the things in my career I am waiting on whether it comes or not. I want that co-sign. I just want to know he watches my s–t.”
On his Twitter post, British female rapper M.I.A., who has previously collaborated with J. Cole and Nicki Minaj, commented: “Se Ya!”, probably implying that she’s also featured. I guess we will find out on Friday, March 9.
