Phresher explains how the Eminem collaboration came about.
Earlier today, the internet went into shambles after Eminem revealed the tracklist for his forthcoming album, Revival. While the anticipation was real, many were confused by the features on the project. The majority of them consisted of big name pop stars and the only rapper featured on it is up-and-comer, Phresher. Considering everybody else's name on Revival and the fact that it's Eminem and he's pretty much able to get any rapper on his album, everyone is now curious to hear what Phresher and Em got up to in the studio.
In an interview with Complex, Phresher gave some insight to his upcoming collaboration with Eminem on the song "Chloraseptic." He said after Eminem heard his track, "Wait A Minute," he reached out to Phresher's camp to get him on the project. Eminem later flew out to New York City for eight hours, strictly to record the track with Phresher. While there hasn't been much indication of what the album will sound like, Phresher did give some insight to how their collaboration is like.
"Yeah, it’s raw as fuck, man. The emotions is just turnt up. It’s a turnt up record. It’s raw. That’s the perfect word for it. Eminem going off. The hook is just [crazy]. We going off. It’s at your throat like Chloraseptic," he said, "The record is about just spitting, man. Just going off, you get what I’m saying? Just cutthroat, at your throat music. Like, I’m on you, you know what I’m saying? Real right-at-you music. It’s just awesome, man. Eminem went crazy on it."
He later said that the track is produced by Denaun Porter and that he didn't even hear the record until he got there. Eminem put him on the spot to record it and once he started doing the underlying harmonies for it, Em and the whole Shady team were ecstatic.
Despite the mixed reaction to the album's pop features, the Phresher collaboration definitely seems to be something to look forward to.
