Timbaland is still in shock about Eminem’s guest verse on a Missy Elliot song that he produced more than 20 years ago.
Couple of days ago DJ Whoo Kid shared a snippet from an interview he did with the Virginia-born producer in which the two discuss Slim Shady’s aptitude for clever lyricism. Looking back at the recording session for the recent Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee’s “Busa Rhyme,” which features on her 1999 album called “Da Real World,” the beatmaker recalled how impressed he was with Marshall.
“When I heard Eminem come in there and spit that verse, I was like, ‘Oh, can’t nobody see this guy. This boy different.” To make his point, he went on to reference the bars: “Well, I do pop pills, I keep my tube socks filled/ Then pop the same shit that got 2Pac killed… Those two bars — I couldn’t get past that.” said Timbaland.

On “Busa Rhyme,” Timbaland allows both Em and Missy to go off, with Slim Shady rapping about his d–k, punching a pregnant woman, and jumping out of the 93rd floor of a building. While Missy talks about how somebody ‘pissed her off’ and her reaction. The hook of the song samples “Play That Funky Music” by Wild Cherry.
