Eminem and Dr. Dre recall the first moment they meet (which later gave birth to one of hip-hop's most iconic songs) in the final episode of HBO's The Defiant Ones documentary, which highlights the rise of the producer and Jimmy Iovine. In the clip, the longtime friends and collaborators detail the life-changing meeting where a young Em spit "My Name Is."
"Eminem comes in in this bright yellow f--king sweatsuit, hoodie, pants everything... it's bright f--king yellow and I'm like, 'wow,'" Dre says of seeing the young rapper who would soon become Slim Shady. And Eminem's reaction? “I’m looking at Dre like, ‘Dude I see you on TV like all the time. You one of my biggest influences ever in life.'" Then, the magic happened!
