Redman is well-respected in the world of hip-hop. So much so, during a recent interview on Shade 45 this week, Eminem called in to talk to the rap veteran.
During the conversation, Em said he was a big Redman fan when he was coming up in the music biz… and even recalled a funny fan moment.
“I was cleaning out my closet, pun intended, and ran across this old picture and sh*t,” he said. “I was like, ‘What the f*ck is… oh sh*t.’ I realized, the first time I had ever went to New York, we actually went to New York and then went to Jersey, me and Bizarre went to record with the Outsidaz and somehow, I can’t remember who we was in the car with, but I know Pace [Won] was with us and we had actually ended up stopping by your house. So I’m like, ‘Oh, sh*t. That’s the picture I took out the back window of your house on some fan sh*t.’ It was like, ‘Holy sh*t. That’s Redman’s house.’ ”
Eminem later said he’d love Redman to autograph the photo, which he said he’d be happy to oblige.
“You’re one of my favorite artists, too,” Redman said. “Keep doing what you’re doing and you’ve got my support over here, brother.”
