Coco Jones raps Eminem’s verse from Drake’s “Forever”




Coco Jones – 25-year-old multi-hyphenate actor, singer/songwriter, and star on the Peacock hit Bel-Air, released her major-label debut EP What I Didn’t Tell You in November 2022, which included the hit single “ICU.”

Coco has been in film and on TV since she was a tween, starting out as a recurring guest on Disney’s musical sketch comedy, So Random!, and, in 2012, as the golden-voiced love interest in the network’s TV movie, Let It Shine.

She has stayed busy ever since, flexing her range across titles that span adventure romps, intense dramas, holiday fare, and comedy horror (Netflix’s Vampires vs. the Bronx). You also may have seen her on the tiny screen—with millions of social media followers, dedicated to upping representation for proud, talented, dark-skinned Black women. Most recently, she won Outstanding New Artist at the 54th NAACP Image Awards.

The rising star has recently visited HOT97 where she talked about her first experiences with Hip Hop, including how Slick Rick’s “Children Story” gave her and her family a memory she can remember. She also spoke about how 2Pac influenced her life while she was younger with the inspirational lyrics in some of his music, and rebellious nature.

At one point of the interview, she was asked about the first song that she memorized and surprisingly it’s Eminem‘s verse from Drake’s “Forever” single, which also features Lil Wayne and Kanye West:

“The first song that I memorized was ‘Forever’ by Drake. I think I memorized the Eminem verse. — He ain’t had him a buzz like this / Since the last time that he overdosed / They been waitin’ patiently for Pinocchio to poke his nose / Back into the game and they know / Rap will never be the same as befo’ / Bashin’ in the brains of these h–s / And establishin’ a name as he goes. — That’s all I remember.”
