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

By HHL JT

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?
