The prolific Detroit rapper Boldy James has recently talked about Eminem showing support after his car accident and possible collaboration with Slim Shady.
“It was under some weird circumstances because I was in hospital in critical condition so when I got the tweet it meant the world cause I do music and I look up to Em and what he did for the city and just hip-hop in general… The Eminem shout out, wishing me a speedy recovery, it definitely meant a lot because a lot of people that was close to me didn’t even wish me well in my situation so that meant the world to me.” said Boldy James.
Then he continued: “I have not spoken to Em since then but I’m sure my brother have. You know, Allen [Alchemist], that’s his bro bro. I’m just tied in through Paul. I’m a proud Detroiter. I’ve been doing hip-hop for a minute. I’m definitely familiar with Eminem. It just feel good to know that he actually is familiar with me as well. That’s what I do it for. I met Jay-Z, I met Nas, Eminem wishing me speedy recoveries, what more can I say?!
“I would love to work with Eminem. I’m never against working with greatest of all times. In my world, me being from the hood, Jay-Z is my favorite rapper but me being from Detroit, Eminem is one of the best to ever do it. Nobody ever put on for the state of Michigan and up north Detroit like Em. Nobody reached the peak that Em touched. Em the one! I would love to work with Em. That’s a no-brainer.”
“It’s about if Eminem wants to work with you or not and if its conducive to what he got going on because one wrong move in this game, you know, a lot of stuff for diminishing started declining so maybe if he admire the type of works you are putting out, I’m a wordsmith just like him, so, I know he can appreciate the people that’s like-minded in that sense so when it comes to just creating, growing up, Eminem influenced me a lot so like I said that’s a no-brainer to work with him, that’s a dream.” Boldy James added.
