Phresher Explains How Eminem Learned About Him Through Royce Da 5'9"


Phresher is the only announced rapper on Eminem's upcoming album Revival.  

This is something that has surprised everyone. Including 2 Chainz, who thought he was on the album.

It's no big surprise that Em found out about Phresher through his one hit "Wait A Minute."

But he did so through his good buddy Royce Da 5'9"'s remix of the track. Phresher explained what happened on This Is 50.

"Royce Da 5'9" went ham on 'Wait a Minute.' Three minutes, just...retarded," Phresher recalls in the video. "Eminem hit [Royce] on Twitter, 'Ay, what is this? What is this, and why are you doing this?' [Royce 5'9"] goes, 'This is Phresher's record.' [Eminem] goes, 'Oh..ok, ok.' And that's when it happened."

Not long after that, Shady's manager Paul Rosenberg called Phresher's manager and told him Em wanted Phresher to do a hook on his album. Then Em flew to New York to record with Phresher.  It turned out they wanted more than a hook.

"I get in the studio. I do the hook. They say "you got a verse" ... I'm like sure, I got a verse.  I do the verse. And they're like you know, 2 Chainz is on the record too. Listen to his verse."

Phresher's mentioning of 2 Chainz is interesting, considering he doesn't seem to be on the album.

Do you think 2 Chainz has a surprise verse on "Chloraseptic", the Revival track featuring Phresher?  Or did they maybe bump him for Phresher?
