A rapper who is successful as a solo artist, as a member of Onyx, actor, film director and writer talks about exchanging features with Eminem and bodying him on “The Marshall Mathers LP”.
In the interview with the Holdin Court Podcast, Sticky Fingaz said that his relationship with the Good Doctor has never gone sour:
Dre always held me down, even though I went with Universal. He still showed me love, he still did things, he put me on the Eminem album, which sold 16 million copies. It’s like a million dollars. He put me on the Snoop Dogg project. Dre is my nigga, I love Dre.
Sticky talks about “The Marshall Mathers LP” here. He also mentions that he has a new updated RIAA plaque for the album that shows this new selling figure. But back then, in 2000, Sticky had just left Onyx to start a solo career, and his appearance on “Remember Me?” alongside RBX and Eminem was a big deal. The rapper revealed that initially, this song was not even meant for MMLP, and that’s why they didn’t record it together:
Here’s the thing, we did not do that in the studio together. It was me, RBX and Dr. Dre. But that song wasn’t even for Eminem’s album. It was for Dr. Dre’s album. But Eminem liked the song so much, he kept it for his own album. Which I’m glad [about] because it has sold 16 million. But me and Eminem were in the studio where he did a chorus for me, for the song called “What If I Was White”. He said he owed me one. He said, “Yo, man, you know, you bodied my shit, but I only did a chorus for you. I still feel like I owe you, Sticky”. I’m coming to collect, Mr Slim Shady. Holla!
