At the time, no details of K-Dot’s meeting with Em were revealed, but now, the Compton rapper speaks on chopping it up with Em in the lab.

During a recent interview with MTV News at Delaware’s Firefly Fest, although he said no music was recorded, there’s a possibility that it will happen down the line, Kendrick Lamar gives details of what the meeting with Eminem detailed.
It was unexpected, I just went to Detroit and I had a show out there and I got a call saying, ‘Em [wants you] to come to the studio, come to the studio fast.
That was me actually just meeting and greeting,” he continued. “I bumped heads with Eminem [in the past], but it was very brief, that was my first time really chopping it up with him, getting to ask all the questions I wanted to ask him.
As he continued, Kendrick says Em gave him the answers to the questions he always wanted to ask:
He gave me straightforward answers and really just gave me the game on how to stay creative as possible.
Kendrick says Em gave him props on GKMC, and some advice:
He basically told me albums haven’t been done like that in a long time from a new artist, and he can appreciate how I structured the whole thing.
And the advice:
Always stay focused on the craft and not indulge in the other crazy stuff that comes around.
