Fredro Starr Says Sticky Fingaz Bodied Eminem On

Fredro Starr says "Remember Me?" "was a great record...It was a competitive record and that's what Hip Hop is about."

With their Wakedafucup record released earlier this year, Onyx sat down with ill Will for an interview while promoting the album in the UK. Touching on their return to music and former group member Sonsee’s absence from the record, Fredro Starr recalled his partner Sticky Fingaz’s verse on Eminem’s third album.

Asked if Eminem “went Hollywood,” the two seemed to agree that the rapper stayed true to his roots.

“That motherfucker still live in Detroit,” Fredro Starr said. “That nigga don’t wear no jewelry.”

“He probably drive a truck and shit,” Sticky Fingaz added.

“If any rapper never went Hollywood, that nigga definitely didn’t go Hollywood,” Starr continued. “That nigga still wear G-Shocks and shit. Eminem rich but I don’t think it went to his head like that man. Me, when I look at a nigga like Em, I just think that nigga’s a mad scientist. He goes to work. He’s ill with his shit. He’s about his business. He’s about his family. That’s all. We don’t judge niggas like that.”

Speaking specifically about Sticky’s appearance on the Marshall Mathers LP song “Remember Me?” Fredro Starr shared feeling like his partner out-rapped Em on his own track.

“The record that Stick did, ‘Remember [Me?]’ was a great record. I think Sticky bodied the nigga personally. But it was a good record. It was a competitive record, and that’s what Hip Hop is about. So fans could say, ‘Oh I think Em bodied him.’ That’s what Hip Hop need to back to. It used to be like that. Now niggas is getting on a record being cool with each other. Fuck all that. You get on a record, body me. I’m gonna try to body you. That’s what Hip Hop is about.”

"Remember Me?" appeared as the ninth track on Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP and also features Long Beach artist RBX. 

Later in the interview, while detailing his reaction to Drake referencing him on the Toronto artist’s commercial debut, Fredro Starr explained sampling the lyrics in question on his recent solo mixtape.

“I mean yeah I respect him for that reason,” he said. “He shout me out on his first album on a record with Jay Z, on the ‘Light Up’ record which was probably one of the hottest records on his first album—I don’t know if it was his first or second album. That’s just like me shouting out somebody on my records. I don’t shout out motherfuckers that I don’t respect. Sampling Drake on the Made In The Streets joint ‘The Truth’ was just an ode back to him. Like somebody giving you dap, I’m giving dap right back.”

    Coming from someone who thinks Em is the GOAT, I think Sticky bodied him. Shady killed his verse but Sticky's was absolutely ridiculous.

    Sticky DID Get Em On That Jawn. Sticky Is A GOAT Fo Reel. Never Spit A Wack 16.

    I thought I was the only one who thought this. Sticky got busy on that joint.
  • Rich
    Its arguable, Em had some crazy lines in that track, but Sticky might have shined a tad bit with his delivery. It's arguable, they both killed that shit regardless.

    • Lol
      Nobody thinks or says eminem started the internal rhyme scheme, well at least i dont and ive never heard that. Clearly the internal rhyme schem came out way before eminem he actually says he got it from big daddy kane

    and you can't deny the obvious influence sticky had on ems style.

    it was a dope record. i don't know about bodied, but he might have had the best verse. for people that don't know, stickys first album gotta be a classic though.
    • rich
      Word , Black Trash was an underrated underground classic. I still fuck with that to this day.
    • Anonymous
      Agreed
  • GOD
    "I've got the soul of every rapper in me, love me or hate me, my moms was raped by the industry amd made ME!" I loved all three verses but if I had to choose based off Lyrics I'd say Sticky. And since its still debatable I would imagine Sticky did his job and made himself memorable on the same ground of a Marshall Mathers in his prime. Ima give the W to Sticky
  • cinavenom
    I like Sticky better but I don't agree with this. I like Em's verse better on this joint.

  • YeezusGODPower
    "Sick, sick dreams of picnic scenes Two kids, sixteen with M-16's and ten clips each And them shits reach through six kids each" If you think Stick bodied Em on this track - name any line EVER that he has put out that had this kind of layered rhyme scheme. Never happened. That said, The Autobiography of Kirk Jones is one of the most underrated albums of the early 2000s. That shxt was ill as fxck. But I'm sorry, the Sticky rhyme on the Marshall Mathers LP is as overrated as the Em verse on The Blueprint. Em's verse was insane on the Blueprint but would have been marginal with everything else he dropped right around it.
    • etan
      Agreed, Black Trash the autobiography of kirk jones. was by far one of the most slept on album of that time. Every track hits hard on that album.
    • Hell yea
      Love that album if u listen closely on the track what if i was white u can hear eminem say the n word ending in er (not nigga) shits crazy
  • Fashotho
    Stick killed that shit, rbx had an average verse at best, read the words he says an the cadence he says it in, the shit stick drops now is on the level rbx was on on that track, fuck the bullshit you cats either Frontin like it ain't no thang Heavy rotational shit Aesop rock-Labour days Gravediggaz-6feetdeep The roots - & then you shoot your cousin Canibus-2000bc Watts gangsters-The real
