Cole Bennett has recently sat down with Anthony Fantano where they talked about how Eminem’s “Doomsday Pt. 2” happened to be on Lyrical Lemonade’s All Is Yellow album.
“A lot of songs in the album were really collaborative. We got to build out the concepts and a lot of really great in-studio sessions and moments and re-working things… ‘Doomsday Pt. 2’ came about…we flipped the original beat and and sent it to him long, long time ago and I didn’t know if he was ever going to do anything on it or not. And as the album was approaching and we are getting ready to turn the things in, it came in. We were actually working on a few other songs on the album. Some that didn’t end up landing on the album that I’m really excited about. Like I said, I didn’t know what to expect, it was not a collaborative thing as much as the others songs. It’s the continuation of the original ‘Doomsday’ which is a flip of his old song to begin with, ‘Role Model.'” said Cole Bennett.
Then he continued: “I really enjoyed some of the delivery and how it came, the Benzino thing to me, it’s just something like I heard the same way that everyone else did. It was just what he had sent in and what he has going on in that department. It has obviously nothing to do with me but I think it created a dialogue and they have their own history and that’s where he was at when he made the song and I think that’s what makes it special on its own way. That’s just what he was feeling that day when he approached that song. Benzino was on his mind I guess.”
“Getting to work with Eminem is one of the highest honors and to have him a part of this project and just look at that tracklist and seeing him on there is nothing short of a childhood dream, so I’m just thankful he could be a part of it.” Cole Bennett added.
