Hip hop fans are waiting for Eminem’s newest album to drop. However, now comes an interesting report from fellow rapper Stat Quo. Apparently, Eminem did not include Stat Quo in Aftermath Entertainment after the two of them got into a heated argument. Now, the rapper tells all about that time he got dropped from Aftermath after disagreeing with Eminem over a chorus. Would there be a chance for the two rappers to work again? What transpired between them? Read on to find out!
Eminem Is Someone You Don’t Want To Mess With
Hot New Hip Hop reports that a few years ago, rapper Stat Quo was part of one of the biggest hip hop labels. That being Dr. Dre and Eminem’s Shady/Aftermath Entertainment. The 37-year-old musician made an album called Statlanta but it sat on the shelf for so long. In a recent interview, the rapper reveals that the reason for that was because he fought with the Rap God.
“My album would have came out but I fucked up,” he said. “The song was called Dance On It. Em wrote the chorus and he wanted me to say the chorus. I thought it was not good. If I would have said, ‘Yeah, that’s it! That’s the one we going with’ I would’ve got my album out. But I tried to be on some ‘Nah, I don’t like that; that ain’t a hit.’ I was really arguing with the top-selling rapper of all time on what a f–kin’ hit was. What a dummy idiot I was,” Stat quo said.
The rapper was told that Eminem got mad at him. And the next day, though he tried to apologize “with tears in his eyes,” the damage had already been done. Stat Quo left the label in 2008.

Stat Quo Takes Incident As Learning Experience
In spite of the nasty argument with Eminem, Stat said he does not regret his experience at Shady Records. He explained how he learned a lot and eventually made it on seen songs on Eminem Presents: The Re-Up album.
“There was a certain kind of way when I started trying to make music to appease them instead of trying to make music to appease the people that got me in the door,” Stat said. He went on to say how everyone seemed to “pick an identity” and how he tried to fit into the label’s sound rather than creating his own.
“Game’s a Blood, 50’s a gangster, Kendrick’s an intellectual. You know who they rapping to when they rap. Stat Quo was all over the place. That’s my fault,” he added.
