T.I. says Eminem took longest time to complete the verse




T.I. has recently sat down with Jamal Crawford and Shaquille O’Neal on The Big Podcast where he talked about some untold rap industry stories, beefs, reactions to the arrest at the Grammys and much more. At one point of the interview, T.I. was asked if he was in the studio with somebody that made him redo his verse, on which TIP replied:

“Young Dro! All the damn time. Bun B too. When I did song with Andre 3000, I was already expecting that. When you work with Andre, I already had my verses and I gave it to him. The three people who have taken the longest to complete the verse in history in my career are: Andree 3000, Eminem and Nipsey Hussle. Nipsey was really meticulous. Man, we fell asleep, waiting on, we woke up and we were like ‘I’ll catch up with you later man, we will finish this later’.”

T.I. is probably talking about Eminem’s verses on “That’s All She Wrote,” a song that appears on T.I.’s 2010 album “No Mercy,” produced by Max Martin and Dr. Luke. In the song T.I. raps about the law Eminem talks about s-x. The instrumental is a mellow affair, a series of guitar strums, both over staccato 808’s, allowing both rappers to take center stage. The song debuted at No. 18 on US Billboard Hot 100 charts.

Eminem and TIP also teamed up on a track “Touchdown” in 2007, from “T.I. vs T.I.P.” album, produced by Jeff Bass and Eminem himself. The song mainly deals with the success of the two artists and their alter egos T.I.P. and Slim Shady. Em raps imitating a Southern American accent, typical of T.I.’s hometown Atlanta. Also, in the third verse TIP explains his gratitude toward hip-hop and criticizes those who disagree with the lyrical content of the music genre. Em was going through hard times at that time and stated that his verse on this song was absolutely horrible.
