Will Smith to Eminem in 1997: “You’ll either be the biggest flop or the biggest thing we’ve ever seen”

In 2013, in the interview with Montreality, DJ Jazzy Jeff revealed that Will Smith gave Eminem some blunt feedback in the late 1990s, prior to Eminem’s signing with Dr. Dre and his Aftermath Entertainment. Dj Jazzy says:

“I was a big fan of Eminem, especially of his super early stuff. I just kinda reached out to him and we did some stuff together… Will Smith walked into the room, and I think I played ‘Just The Two Of Us. Will listened to it, and Will looked at Eminem and said, ‘You are either gonna be the biggest flop in Hip Hop, or you are gonna be the biggest thing that we have ever seen in Hip Hop. And Eminem never forgot that.”
