Cash Kidd has recently sat down with No Jumper where the Detroit rapper talked about hopping on a song with Eminem and Royce 5’9″ on Big Sean’s “Friday Night Cypher” from Detroit 2 album which also features Kash Doll, Payroll Giovanni, Sada Baby, Drego, Boldy James, 42 Dugg and Tee Grizzley.
In a similar fashion to how Em united with six Detroiter rappers on “Detroit vs. Everybody,” Big Sean went further on “Friday Night Cypher” and brought together fourteen Detroit natives — eleven rappers and three producers, including Cash Kidd. Part of the song is also produced by Detroit 2’s executive producer Hit-Boy, who is the only artist on this song who doesn’t hail from Detroit.
In rap, a “cypher” refers to a gathering of rappers, usually taking turns freestyling. “Friday Night Cypher” runs through seven beat switches and brings together rappers with very different styles over a nearly ten-minute run-time. It is notable for uniting individuals who have previously had disagreements, notably Eminem, Royce and Tee Grizzley.
“I brag about that with everybody. We were all in the studio together. Everybody was in there. I wish I was in the studio with Eminem. Everyone was there besides Eminem and Royce 5’9″. Sean was there too. Tee Grizzley was there.” said Cash Kidd.
Then he continues: “Eminem man, I got a song with Eminem. My homeboy in jail called me, he had been there for like 10 years and s–t. He could not believe it. I’m in motherf–kin line in store and my phone keep bolwin’ up. I picked it up and I hear my dude be like ‘MAN, YOU GOT A SONG WITH EMINEM?! WHAT A F–K NI–A. I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS S–T. I’M GOING CRAZY! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT BRO. Eminem bro. Still can’t believe it right now. Eminem! That’s crazy. That s–t meant the world to me. That s–t was lit as hell. Best thing in my career. I appreciate everybody that make that s–t happen.”
