The song came together after Cudi put out the call on social media in May. “@Eminem rap God. Help!” he tweeted. Em said he was unaware that Cudi was trying to reach him when he spoke to Lil Wayne on Young Money Radio, but they eventually connected.
Cudi previously linked with Travis Scott on “The Scotts,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Prior to that, he released “Leader of the Delinquents,” his first solo release since 2016’s Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’.
He is now readying his seventh studio album, Entergalactic, inspired by his upcoming adult animated music series for Netflix. Additionally, he is set to appear in this summer’s Bill & Ted Face the Music and HBO’s coming-of-age series “We Are Who We Are,” which debuts in September.
