Anderson .Paak revealed on Twitter that he collaborated with Eminem for a track when a fan asked why he was not featured on the official track list.

“We did a joint” .Paak responded alongside a frowning emoji expressing disapproval.

2 Chainz was also originally featured on the track “Chloraseptic” alongside PHresher but was taken off.

Eminem recently spoke with Elton John about his memorable anti-Donald Trump freestyle “The Storm” that took place during the BET Hip Hop Awards, and revealed that the performance was supposed to happen live.

“The original idea was for me to go to the BET Awards and do it acapella onstage,” Eminem said. “I went home that same day and wrote it all, but then at the last minute, plans got switched around and we filmed it in Detroit.”

The Detroit rapper also revealed that the setup of his performance was largely inspired by the single cover art for Public Enemy’s song “You’re Gonna Get Yours.”

“One of the things we were trying to mimic was Public Enemy’s ‘You’re Gonna Get Yours’ cover,” he said. “I don’t know if anybody got that, but that’s kind of the feel that we were going for.”
