2 Chainz recently sat down with Tim Westwood to discuss his new album, Rap or Go to the League, and sharing the bill with Eminem during the latter’s recent Revival Tour stop in London.
Westwood was quick to congratulate 2 Chainz on the “major game” experience. Surprisingly 2 Chainz did not know how popular Eminem is in UK, so Tim explained:
“Congratulations on the Eminem, being on the bill for Em. That is just major game over here. Major. In the UK it gets no bigger than Eminem for a decade.Like, fans dating back from day one to now, Eminem holds a special place in the UK. He resonates with people, and to be on that bill is a major, major move. He just caught everyone’s imagination. It was also, like, a generational thing. That was their rite of passage in hip-hop. He was… People really related to what he said. He just resonated in a way. He talked to people over here, just talked to them emotionally, man. And those fans? He’s kept for 10 years.”
Later on, 2 Chainz said he told Eminem that he was preparing to steal some of Eminem’s fans after the show in London. Watch the interview below:
2 Chainz also joked (a bit disrespectfully) after the performance in London, calling himself a GOAT while being on stage with Eminem: “The GOAT and Eminem”
