Detroit rappers Tee Grizzley and Skilla Baby has recently sat down for an exclusive interview with HipHopDX to talk about everything from Eminem‘s “8 Mile” movie to “First Day Out” to their new project, toxic lyrics, Big Sean, Nipsey Hussle, Taylor Swift, Tee Grizzley’s gaming and much more.

At one point of the interview, the two started talking about favorite verse from each other. That’s where the Eminem-talk started.

“I walked in there nervous as hell. That’s why I was trying to play it cool. I mean, I’m with Tee Grizzley! So, I’m out here with T, I gotta throw my hardest punchline. Cause, you get one shot, palms sweaty, mom’s spaghetti.” said Skilla Baby.

Then interviewer asked if they ever had any interaction with Eminem while growing up.

“I don’t know nobody that really seen Eminem but Trick Trick. I heard he still live around where we are from, he just live far out. I never seen Eminem. I know he had restaurant downtown.” Skilla Baby replied.

Then Tee Grizzley continued: “I love Royce. I never talked to Eminem before. I definitely want to cook something with Royce in future but 8 Mile movie though, that is legendary.”

“We don’t wanna take nothing from Em though. He’s big where we are from. We just have not seen him. 8 Mile was big for us and all the Marshall Mathers s–t. All that s–t was hard. I ain’t saying I ain’t listened to his music. I banged his music. He’s big cultural impact.” Skilla Baby added.
