“Forever” Producer Says Drake Held Up With Eminem

Posted By on August 28, 2009

     The producer of "Forever" [listen here], the new huge collaboration between Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Eminem, says that he feels Drake held his own with Eminem on the track. When asked who spit the best verse on the song, Boi-1da said "Honestly I’m gonna have to be biased and say Drake," he said, "really
it’s between Drake and Eminem. I’ve never seen anybody hold up on a
song with Eminem, like usually Eminem blows out. Drake’s my dude, and
he’s my favorite rapper, but knowing Eminem I thought he was gonna blow
by everybody, but Drake came strong. It’s like a toss up. And like
that’s never been done before, I never heard a toss up between Eminem,
it’s always just Eminem cause he’s a monster."

     The producer also went on to give a little history on the track. "It was originally supposed to be a song that Drake was supposed to come out to, maybe we were trying to make it like a first single. Somehow it got leaked out onto the Internet, a version with him, Wayne and some dude named [Nut da] Kid and everybody was upset about it or whatever, but we knew that it was just a huge record and we had to do it justice."
